Edmonds Center for the Arts Presents Windmill Theatre's Big Bad Wolf

On March 18-19, 2016, Edmonds Center for the Arts (ECA) presents Big Bad Wolf, a new production by the internationally-renowned children’s theatre from Australia, Windmill Theatre. Big Bad Wolf will be featured as an ECA Education Matinee for school groups and homeschool families on Friday at 10:00 am & 12:30 pm, and as a public Family Series performance on Saturday, March 19 at 11:00 am.

Described as “A whimsical, gently persuasive tale of friendship and acceptance” (The Australian), Big Bad Wolf tells the story of the most misunderstood character in fairytale history. Put simply, he has no friends – just incredibly sharp teeth, yellow eyes and his own ideas about personal hygiene. Luckily Heidi Hood, the second cousin twice removed of Little Red, is brave enough to see past this wolf’s bad press and an unlikely friendship is born.

From the acclaimed children’s theatre company that produced Pinocchio and School Dance comes a brand new work for young audiences. Written by Matthew Whittet and directed by Rosemary Myers, Big Bad Wolf is a hilarious, table-turning tale that will have you wondering why you were so scared in the first place.

Windmill Theatre creates and presents performances that captivate audiences’ imaginations and resonate deeply. Windmill artists are inspired by the vibrancy, sophistication and inventiveness of young people and the exhilarating challenges they pose to creating theatre of genuine relevance in this modern time. In meeting this challenge, Windmill Theatre positions theatre for children, young people and families in a dynamic national and international conversation that is defining the future of theatre practice.

 

ECA’s Saturday matinee performance of Big Bad Wolf is presented as part of the Family Series. The mission of the Family Series is to engage young people in diverse and exciting arts experiences, through theatre, music and interdisciplinary arts performances. The Family Series continues with Mud Bay Jugglerson May 7, 2016. All Family Series performances take place at 11:00 am at Edmonds Center for the Arts.
