The Evil Stepmother/defence lawyer (Chelsea Gundersen) questions the Big Bad Wolf (Justine Carlow).

Putting the Big Bad Wolf on trial

After a few years without a play, Lake Cowichan Secondary School students returned to the stage, last week, for two performances of The Big Bad; a humorous play about the Big Bad Wolf’s trial.

After a few years without a play, Lake Cowichan Secondary School students returned to the stage, last week, for two performances of The Big Bad; a humorous play about the Big Bad Wolf’s trial.

“This is their first play ever,” Drama teacher Erika Blume said, of the Drama 9-10 class that put on the play.

“I thought it would be an interesting way to end the course.”

The play was also suitable for a young audience, with AB Greenwell and Palsson Elementary School students invited to see the performances.

A young audience is also an easy one; a good environment for new actors.

The students had been working on the play since Spring Break, when those auditioning began reading the script.

Auditions were held after the break, with those cast easing into more and more practices as opening night approached.

During the play’s performance, the young audience stayed consistently entertained and laughing at the characters’ antics.

Those jokes that did go over the kids’ heads served to keep the teachers entertained.

For a student performance, it was very well polished and professional, more akin to the shows put on by the Kaatza Lakeside Players than a school performance.

Blume hopes the students keep up with their acting, and put on another play next year.

Although she won’t be working at the school next year, Blume plans on helping out with the production.
