Synopsis

The Big Bad Ugly is the story of a handsome prince that is turned into a ugly creature by a witch. He only wants to be friends with all the animals of the forest but all of his attempts to befriend them go painfully wrong. The animals of the forest, led by the wise old owl, get together and decide to put a bell on the BBU so they will always know when he’s around. See what happens at the clearing on Bald Mountian.

Materials to Prepare

There will be a cold read of the script as well as some improv games. (Don’t worry. You do not have to have experience with improv, it is more to see how you play).
