Two Muses Theatre's latest family theatre production, Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf by Tom McCabe, opens Feb. 9 in West Bloomfield.
The show combines The Three Little Pigs and Little Red Riding Hood, with the big bad wolf stuck between the two stories, and each performance will be accompanied with other child-friendly activities including a raffle drawing. In post-performance autograph sessions, parents will have the opportunity to take their children’s pictures with the characters: Little Red Riding Hood (Meredith Deighton), Oink, Porky and Bacon Bits (Lillian Bishop, Atran Raikany and Emilio Rodriguez), Granny (Paige Vanzo), the brave Huntsman (Dick Ward) and of course, the BIG BAD WOLF (Benjamin Deman).
Director Nancy Cooper has a particular passion for directing children’s theatre because the children in the audience are always so responsive.
“They pay full attention to the action on stage. They laugh, they hiss, they participate when asked. It’s a joy!” she said. “This particular play is such fun because it makes use of two well-known stories to make a brand new tale.”
The show runs Saturdays and Sundays through Feb. 24. Two Muses Theatre, which was founded by Farmington Hills residents Diane Hill and Barbie Amann Weisserman, performs in the intimate 160-seat theatre inside Barnes & Noble Booksellers, located at 6800 Orchard Lake Road in West Bloomfield (south of Maple).
Advance tickets are $10 and $8 for children ages 3 to 10 (no babes in arms or children under 3), and can be purchased at twomusestheatre.org or by calling 248-850-9919. Tickets are also available at the door for an additional $2. Doors open 30 minutes before each performance.
