WRHS Apollonian Players To Present Dramatic Work 'BIG BAD'
Big Bad provides actors and audiences of any age with a smart and wickedly funny play that lets the audience determine the outcome of the play! The most notorious criminal in the fairy-tale world, Big Bad Wolf (Will Harris), is being slapped with a class-action lawsuit by the countless quirky characters he has wronged. Now, the two greatest legal minds in the Enchanted Forest — the Evil Stepmother (Haley Sickell) and the Fairy Godmother (Brooklyn Pratt) — will clash--on live Court TV, no less, with Sydney Grimm (Hannah Rogers) as commentator in a trial that will be remembered forever after. As Little Red Riding Hood Aleksandra Tsangarides, her Grandmother (Ellie Wright), the Three Little Pigs (Anthony Coviello, Mark Pusky, Annie Cramer) and the Shepherdess (Mikel Lamont) in charge of the Boy Who Cried Wolf (Holden Nelson) testify, the wolf seems deserving of all that’s coming.
But, even though the disreputable Evil Stepmother couldn’t be less interested in 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? Perhaps he does deserve compassion instead of condemnation? What will the verdict be? Only the jury — your audience — can decide, when the doddering old Judge (Lucas Walsh) invites them to determine the outcome of the trial... and the play!
