After last season's rewarding production of A WRINKLE IN TIME, Middle Schoolers are offered another chance to perform in a one-act musical. A courtroom has never been more lively and fun than in The Big Bad Musical! 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 storybook 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.
This is an audition-based program and roles are limited. The rehearsal will be run as a professional rehearsal process and participants will be expected to meet deadlines and be proactive members of the cast. To schedule your audition, email Danielle Roth – Danielle@darienarts.org
