Tanisha Jenkins (Fairy Godmother)


Similkameen Elementary Secondary School’s Little Theatre Company will be showing their production of the musical The Big Bad Musical this December 11 and 12 at the SESS elementary gym.

The comedy is a fairy tale inspired play based on the Big, Bad Wolf’s storied deeds.

Brought to trial for alleged crimes against a number of fairy tale characters after his misdeeds catch up with him,  he must defend himself with the help of none other than the Evil Stepmother.

Seeking damages from the wolf are Little Red Riding Hood, her mother, the boy who cried wolf and his father, and the Three Little Pigs.

The audience gets involved in the play as well, ultimately deciding the wolf’s guilt or innocence through the use of applause.

There is something in this play for the whole family 0 the 14 member cast hope to see you there.

See page 11 for further details.
