O'Donnell Performing Arts Center, Blinn College, Brenham
A live musical by the Brenham Broadway Kids, the performing group from Brenham Children's Chorus. A courtroom has never been more lively and fun than in The Big Bad Musical! This smart and wickedly funny musical is great for audiences of any age. The jury (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 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.
