A courtroom has never been more lively and fun than in The Big Bad Musical!  This smart and wickedly funny musical is great for actors and Big-Bad-Mus-5audiences of any age.  The jury — your audience — must decide the outcome of the biggest trial ever in the fairy-tale world!  The notorious Big Bad Wolf is being slapped with a class-action lawsuit by storybooks of quirky characters who want to get even:  Little Red Riding Hood, her Grandmother, the Three Little Pigs and the Shepherd in charge of the Boy Who Cried Wolf.  With Sydney Grimm as the commentator on live Court TV, the two greatest legal minds in the Enchanted Forest — the Evil Stepmother and the Fairy Godmother — clash in a trial that will be remembered forever after.  As our wronged fairy tale characters testify, the wolf seems deserving of all that’s coming.  Yet, even though the infamous Evil Stepmother resents doing pro-bono work on such an obviously futile defense, Mr. Wolf makes a good case for himself.  Was he born a criminal, or made one?  This musical has it all — audience participation, minimal set and costume requirements, a good balance of stage time for each character, multiple endings to make every performance unique, and Bill Francoeur’s toe-tapping tunes!

Hop on a flying carpet to visit the exciting city of Shammar in Old Arabia! Meet the adventurous Aladdin and his mischievous monkey, Alakazam.

Aladdin’s mother and sister are at their wit’s end trying to get Aladdin to settle down.  It’s not easy, especially with merchants and neighbors complaining about Aladdin’s tricks.  One day Aladdin meets the beautiful Princess Jasmine and vows he will marry her.  Aladdin, however, is visited by the evil magician, Jammal, and his wicked sister, Halima.  They know that only a boy named Aladdin can enter the mysterious cave, which houses a strange lamp containing a genie who will grant Jammal all the power he craves.

Tricking Jammal, Aladdin claims the magic lamp for himself and with its power, wins the princess and impresses the Sultan by building a beautiful palace.  But Jammal isn’t through with his evil ways!  He regains possession of the lamp, kidnaps Jasmine and magically transports Aladdin’s new palace to the shores of Morocco!  Aladdin, in his attempt to save Jasmine, must face Chop-Chop, the executioner and, of course, regain possession of the lamp.

Cheer the finale when Aladdin and Jasmine are reunited and Jammal is transformed into a new person.  You’ll meet not one, but three, genies, the whining Ali ’Bubba’ and his umbrella, the fire-breathing dragon and the haughty Sultan’s wife.
