The Big Bad Musical is just one of over 800 plays and musicals available through WholesomePlays.com. This best-selling musical owes its popularity in part to its incredible versatility and broad appeal for actors ranging from upper elementary through high school age. The notorious Big Bad Wolf is being slapped with a class-action lawsuit by all the storybook characters wanting to get even with him, including the Three Little Pigs and Red Riding Hood. The audience is the jury and must decide the outcome of the trial, which conveys a subtle underlying theme that not every situation is straightforward and black and white.

WholesomePlays.com is a division of Pioneer Drama Service, Inc., one of the largest full-service play publishing companies in the United States. All of their scripts – extensively produced by schools, churches, and children’s theatres – are carefully selected to meet the specific needs of the educational and amateur markets. Plays and musicals from WholesomePlays.com offer flexible casts, simple sets and costuming, and trouble-free props and stage effects.  Many of these are perfect for support group performances or even for large family performances (think family reunions)!

Involvement in the arts benefits our children – whether they’re in the audience, onstage, behind the scenes, or reading a play in the comfort of their own home. Besides building self-confidence and speaking and listening skills, reading scripts improves both fluency and expression. A strong background in the arts is both a gift and an educational experience we can give our homeschooled students. Don’t you agree?

And of course, fun learning is forever learning!
