The play, based on the parody children’s book by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith, touches on subjects like bullying, honesty and sharing. It features music and lyrics by Robert Kauzlaric, Paul Gilvary and William Rush.
Alexander T. Wolf, A.K.A. “The Big Bad Wolf” is on trial for the terrible crimes he has committed, and in this Hog-Eat-Hog world he will finally reveal his side of the story to the town of pigs accusing him in this funny courtroom drama.
LightBox Theatre Company co-founders Stefani Tsai and Eric Broadwater are directing and designing the production, respectively. Karen Koner, the coordinator of Music Education at Stan State, is the musical director. The play features local actors from the community and recent Stanislaus State graduates.
“This is going to be a really fun play for our young audiences” Tsai said. “We are extremely excited to produce another musical and bring this great script to life. I think theatre fans of all ages will enjoy this twist to the classic story.”
