Whats so bad about the Big Bad Wolf? At last B.B. (Big Bad) Wolfe tells his side of the story, in rap, no less. Has the notorious pork poacher and grandma impersonator gotten a bum rap, or is he truly deserving of his moniker? You be the judge! This tongue-in-cheek version of two childrens favorites uses humor and music to explore our fear of things we dont understand. This is one of our most popular and funniest productions, and includes lots of audience participation. Show runs from July 24 " Aug. 31, 2014.
