The Big Bad Musical And Over 800 Other Plays & Musicals to Choose From! Ages: 3 – Adult

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.

Homeschool.com found the stage requirements for The Big Bad Musical very simple and the plot line humorous. As with all the musicals carried by WholesomePlays.com, a CD set is available for purchase – one CD with the lyrics for rehearsals and a karaoke CD for your production-which makes producing a musical quite easy, even without a musical background. We were very impressed with the quality of this CD set, which even eliminates the need for a piano.

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?
