Theater in the Park

It's the trial of the century and court is in session! Come join Cornerstone Performing Arts' theatrical production of Big Bad, the hilarious tale of the Big Bad Wolf and his legal woes. Yes, the same Big Bad Wolf who caused so much heartache for so many is now the subject of a class-action lawsuit by those he has wronged. As the Evil Stepmother and the Fairy Godmother duke it out in a court of law...YOU as our audience will serve as the jury. Mr. Wolf has made a pretty strong case for himself, but it's up to you to decide...is he worthy of forgiveness and a second chance or should he be condemned for his crimes? This fun and exciting production is filled with crowd participation and laughter and will keep you guessing until the very end!
