A Trial By Jury
The Jury

The so called, villain, is on trial. Boo the Big Bad Wolf. Does he deserve put in jail or not? You decide.

This is an interactive pantomime by a talented crew of performers dedicated to their roles. The script has the audience involved in the trial of The Big Bad Wolf's conviction of his attempted deception, destruction and consumption of Little Red Riding Hood and her Grandmother. And the break, enter and attempted consumption of the Three Little Pigs.

The Big Bad Wolf presents as 'bad but charismatic' however, the narrator, Heckles, constantly prompt the audience to "boo" The Big Bad Wolf every time his name is mentioned in the trial.

Little Red Riding Hood puts on a fabulous performance and sings beautifully. The Three Little Pigs play a major role as they tell their horrifying stories.

Members of the jury include Snow White, Little Bo Peep, Witch Hazel, Scarecrow, Merlin, Gingerbreadman and Belle all colourfully clothed and taking their jury duty seriously.

As the audience are introduced to the victims and their stories, more of the Big Bad Wolf's character is revealed. It seems he is quite unsuccessful in deceitful behaviours especially in his attempt to build an alibi where he actually digs himself into a hole by posting photos of himself on Facebook (of him in clothes stolen from Little Red Riding Hood's grandmother 'doh').

The show offers families great value entertainment for only $5 per ticket with children under 3 years free.
