Our Week Ahead - Homeschool Production of Big Bad


A courtroom has never been more lively and fun than in The Big Bad Musical! This smart and wickedly funny musical is great for actors and audiences of any age. The jury—your audience—must decide the outcome of the biggest trial ever in the fairy-tale world! The notorious Big Bad Wolf is being slapped with a class-action lawsuit by storybooks of quirky characters who want to get even: Little Red Riding Hood, her Grandmother, the Three Little Pigs and the Shepherd in charge of the Boy Who Cried Wolf. With Sydney Grimm as the commentator on live Court TV, the two greatest legal minds in the Enchanted Forest—the Evil Stepmother and the Fairy Godmother—clash in a trial that will be remembered forever after. As our wronged fairy tale characters testify, the wolf seems deserving of all that’s coming. Yet, even though the infamous Evil Stepmother resents doing pro-bono work on such an obviously futile defense, Mr. Wolf makes a good case for himself. Was he born a criminal, or made one?

This is what we will be doing all week. The show is on Thursday. Mr. Big Boy is Sydney Grimm, Mr. Middleman plays The Judge and Pannini is Mother Wolf. Mr. Pinch will be doing a pre-lude with the other Elementary students of folk culture. They will do some dances from different countries, that they have learned over the fall session.

It's going to be a long week of prep and rehearsal. The kids are looking forward to it and so am I. It's a very funny play and the students are doing a great job. Now I just have to decide if the wolf is guilty or not!

How very creative and so much learning to be had in the process! Thanks for sharing with other parents whom it might help. (One can do the same outside homeschooling venues, as well.) You sound like a great homeschooling mom where your kids can learn so much more than they will get in school. God bless you all - and Merry Christmas!
