Gunnedah Shire Council | The Big Bad Wolf Story Like You've Never Seen It Before

It is your childhood story but not like you remember. Gunnedah Shire Council, Arts North West and Windmill Theatre Co have teamed up to bring Gunnedah a very special children’s live theatre performance of Big Bad Wolf – the most misunderstood character in fairy tale history.
Described as a bit of a loner, the Big Bad Wolf has no friends, but then he does have incredibly sharp teeth, yellow eyes and his own ideas about personal hygiene. Luckily, one girl is brave enough to double-check this wolf’s bad press and an unlikely friendship is born.
Gunnedah Shire Council’s Arts and Cultural Officer Lauren Mackley said the performance is a clever and whimsical story that will delight children and adults alike.
“The retelling of the story of the Big Bad Wolf will have the whole family laughing along,” Ms Mackley said.
“The story is fun and thought-provoking, having you wonder why you were so scared of the Big Bad Wolf in the first place.”
The team at Gunnedah’s Cultural Precinct is encouraging everyone to come dressed as their favourite fairy tale character, with two family movie passes up for grabs, for the scariest and the funniest costumes.
The Big Bad Wolf – the most misunderstood character in fairy tale history will be held on Saturday, 20 October at The Civic, 83 Chandos Street, from 5.00pm.
Tickets are $30 for adults, $20 for children under 15 and $80 for two adults, two children. Bookings are essential.
Tickets are available online at, or in person at Gunnedah’s Visitor Information Centre, Chandos Street Gunnedah or at Gunnedah Shire Council’s Administration Building, Elgin Street, Gunnedah.
