A humorous and heartwarming musical based on the beloved children’s story. Siblings Bridget and Stephen are sleeping over their grandmother’s house. When neither of them can sleep, they decide to act out their favorite story. With the things found in the attic and clothes from an old wardrobe, what’s real and what’s imagined begins to blur until the children find themselves in the deep dark woods with a wolf tracking them down! This is a one-hour musical perfect for children up to 14 years old.
