Kaleidoscope Theatre's LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD is an original musical written by David G. Payton of Cranston, RI, the Executive Director of Kaleidoscope Theatre. Little Red Riding Hood and her Mother live a quiet life together in the woods, but unfortunately for them, the devious Big Bad Wolf is about to disrupt their cozy lifestyle. The handsome, conniving, and hungry Wolf sets out to eat Little Red, her sick Granny, and all of Little Red’s goodies. Unfortunately for the Wolf, Little Red’s cold-stricken Granny is more interested in marrying the wolf than running away from him. In Kaleidoscope’s adaptation of LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD, you’ll find that Granny’s a dilly, Wolfy’s quite silly, Red’s mother who shares, a Huntsman who cares, and a little girl all dressed in red come to life from the book you once read. It is full of songs, dance and loads of laughs for everyone plus audience participation and involvement which make this a show the whole family won't want to miss! So come along with Little Red as she tries to get to Granny's before the Big Bad Wolf.
