Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?
to open July 26: cast announced

The Arkansas State University Theatre will continue its 2006 ASU Summer Children’s Theatre season with “Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?” by Tom McCabe.

Come and follow Cornelius B.B. Wolf as he sets out to capture his dinner. The Three Little Pigs and Little Red Riding Hood might need the audience’s help to escape the wolf’s appetite as a French Canadian woodsman works hard to keep the Big Bad Wolf on his toes.

This hilarious comedy combines the whirlwind antics of three pigs, an eager woodsman and Cornelius B.B. Wolf, who might actually get something to eat, if he doesn’t keep blowing thing
s away. This clever fairy tale combination will keep the entire family laughing into the aisles.
