BIG BAD WOLF (AND HOW HE ...
Book and Lyrics by Greg Palmer
Music by John Engerman
Approx. 11 characters + townspeople
Script: 70 pages. About 2 hours.
Here’s a rousing musical defense of the wolf, presented in English Panto style. Panto employs hybridized fairy tales, puns, cross-dressed characters, big-head characters, magical transformations and silliness to the max. With plot aspects from “The Three Little Pigs,” “Red Riding Hood,” “The Boy Who Cried Wolf,” and even “Frankenstein,” the pigs are shown to be the real culprits. They're clever media manipulators with strictly their own swinish interests at heart. The two-member orchestra also becomes a hilarious part of the performance as they interact with the actors and audience. Fourteen songs including “Blame It on the Wolf,” “The Fifth Deadly Sin Ballet,” “Grand March of the Swine,” “There Is Nothing Like a Mob,” and “Do I Dare to Dream of You.” This script was commissioned by the Empty Space Theatre of Seattle.
