The Big Bad Wolf will huff, and puff and blow the audience away when Piedmont College students present "The Trial of the Big Bad Wolf," at 4 p.m., Saturday, March 16, at the Swanson Center in Demorest. Admission is free and the play is appropriate for all ages.

As part of her senior capstone project, Strickland organized a group of 15 Piedmont students as the "Barrel of Monkeys" players and they have presented "Wolf" for some 500 elementary school students in Habersham and Banks counties.
