Are you staying in Joburg over the December holidays and looking for ideas of how to entertain the children? Look no further than the The Big Bad Musical, on stage at Roodepoort Theatre from for a short season from 15 – 23 December.

The Big Bad Musical is a smart, wickedly funny and interactive musical for the youngsters as well as the young-at-heart.

It tells the story of the court case. A courtroom has never been more lively and fun. The jury, which is the audience, must decide the outcome of the biggest trial that’s ever taken place in the fairy-tale world.

The notorious Big Bad Wolf is being slapped with a class-action lawsuit by quirky storybook characters who want to get even, being Little Red Riding Hood, her Grandmother, the Three Little Pigs and the Shepherd in charge of the Boy Who Cried Wolf.

The plaintiff’s attorney is Miss Fairy Godmother, while Mr. Wolf is represented by none other than The Wicked Witch, who was assigned the pro bono case – a clash in a trial that will be remembered forever after!

There is non-stop fun in this 60-minute musical delight, including fantastic original songs and hilarious audience participation for the children, making it an end-of-year experience not to be missed.
