Drama students present one-act play, 'Big Bad'
January 24, 2018
On Thursday, Feb. 1, come to Timberlake High School in Helena for an evening of food and fun.
First, from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the multi-purpose building, the eighth-grade class will be hosting a chili and soup supper by donation.
Next, at 7 p.m. in the high school auditorium, the Timberlake drama students will present the one-act play "Big Bad." Tickets may be purchased at the door.
The most notorious criminal in the fairytale world, Big Bad Wolf, is being slapped with a class-action lawsuit by the countless quirky characters he has wronged. Now, the two greatest legal minds in the Enchanted Forest – the evil stepmother and the fairy godmother – will clash (on live Court TV, no less, with Sydney Grimm as commentator) in a trial that will be remembered forever after. As Little Red Riding Hood, her grandmother, the Three Little Pigs and the shepherd in charge of the Boy Who Cried Wolf testify, the wolf seems deserving of all that's coming. But, even though the disreputable evil stepmother couldn't be less interested in 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? Perhaps he does deserve compassion instead of condemnation? What will the verdict be?
