Watch WLHS Children's Theatre production of Walters Big Bad Day


by: SUBMITTED PHOTO - The entire cast of 'Walter's Big Bad Day.'The West Linn High School Children’s Theatre class will present its semester project production “Walter’s Big Bad Day.” The play was written specifically for the theater group by staff member Annie Kaiser.

“I wanted this year’s Children’s Theatre play to be designed for younger students,” director Jessica Murray said. “I have a 4-year-old son who asked me, ‘Mommy, can you make me a play about the Big Bad Wolf?’ ”

This show blends the stories of “Little Red Ridinghood,” “The Three Little Pigs” and “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” and examines each from the perspective of the wolf and a little boy named Walter who is having a very bad day. This show is designed for young children and runs 30 minutes, with a meet and greet following the production.

“It is contemporary and cute, a story a little kid can absolutely relate to, about examining good choices and friendships,” Murray said.
