National Youth Music Theatre return to the Festival with a new work written by best-selling children’s author Timothy Knapman, and with music by Laurence Mark Wythe.
We all think we know the story of the Big Bad Wolf... how he's mean and greedy, and likes blowing down the houses of innocent little pigs, and gobbling up grandmas just for the wicked fun of it. But that’s a fairy tale and the truth is a whole lot more surprising! In this hilarious, action-packed new family musical, you’ll get to meet the real Wolf: the guardian of a beautiful forest and all the creatures who live there... When a smooth-talking Woodcutter and his gang of henchmen turn up with deforestation and redevelopment on their minds, the Wolf is the only one standing in their way. But once they’ve sown the seeds of doubt among his friends, the Wolf - and his woodland family - will be tested to breaking point, and even the gentlest of creatures will learn that there are times when you just have to be Big and Bad. Starts: 6pm Tickets: £16, £13, £11, £8, Festival Friends £2 off Venue: Theatre Royal, Bury St Edmunds This event is promoted by the Bury Festival in association with National Youth Music Theatre.
