Red Riding Hood

Red Riding Hood
(35 minutes, set to music, told without words)

Red Riding Hood starts through the forest with a basket of goodies for her grandmother. Her goodwill journey is interrupted by a hungry wolf, intent on stealing the basket for himself.

Upon his arrival, the wolf fills grandmother's home with hilarious commotion. Grandmother and Red Riding Hood must hide in the wardrobe while the wolf blissfully eats from the basket of goodies.

A tireless hunter and his loyal dog pursue the wolf into the forest. The wolf is chased away by a swooping owl, and a prickly porcupine so Red Riding Hood can return to her home and mother.

This gentle performance draws the audience into a magical world filled with playful music, vivid backdrops, imaginative decor and lifelike marionettes. The thoughtful and "happy ending" version of this classic tale is enchanting for young and old alike.
