<cal2>"Little Red Riding Hood & the 3 Little Pigs." What’s so bad about the Big Bad Wolf? At last B.B. (Big Bad) Wolfe tells his side of the story, and 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 the two children’s favorites uses humor and music to explore our fear of things we don’t understand. This is one of our funniest productions, and includes lots of audience participation. Recommended for PreK – Grade 6. Running time is 40 minutes. Performances on Thursdays and Fridays at 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., Saturdays and Sundays at 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. ASL interpreted Aug. 22 at 1 p.m. Tickets $10, group rates available.
