The Little Bad Wolf

When the Big Bad Wolf retires it’s time for his nephew the Little Bad Wolf to take charge of the forest and scare the inhabitants silly. However, the Little Bad Wolf isn’t big, and he isn’t bad at all. Word is out, there’s a new wolf in town and he’s more of a pushover than a house of straw.

On his first day on the job, the Little Bad Wolf sets out to blow down the houses of the Three Little Pigs, but the pigs are not alone. The tables have turned. It’s the Little Bad Wolf that gets blown away in a barrage of bullying and slapstick trickery. Meet Fido, the Pigs’ pet crocodile. Sore and sorry for himself, the Little Bad Wolf must make a choice; become big and bad like his uncle, or find another way to keep the peace in the forest.

The Little Bad Wolf provides a refreshing perspective on universal life-lessons. Threading favourite storybook and nursery rhyme characters together through puppetry and song, The Little Bad Wolf is a cabaret fairytale mash-up for children. Kindness, respect, sharing, and the value of friendship, are explored in song when classic fairytale characters make hilarious guest appearances.

The tale of The Little Bad Wolf ties everything together in a story relevant to contemporary children about gaining the confidence and skills to stand up to the bullies in life.
