Theatre Porto in association with HOME Manchester, Eastern Angles and MLCP presents

Little Red

Enjoy a playful twist on a familiar tale this winter

Join our feisty heroine Little Red, as she follows the path to Grandma’s house, meeting talking sheep, dancing trees and a jazz-singing Wolfie along the way.

Can she resist his musical stylings and get safely to Grandma’s house?

In world where the woodcutter is chopping down all the trees, is Mr Wolfie the big, baddie we think he is? And, is Grandma the ‘trophy-hunter’ really sick?

With irresistible adventure, superb visual storytelling and songs that you’ll be humming all winter, Little Red is the perfect festive treat for all the family.

You can purchase an Adult and Baby ticket for this show if the young person is not old enough to sit in their own seat. Please be aware, there will be no alterations made to the environment on the day, which includes the sound remaining at its intended volume.

Relaxed Performance

Please note that for the performance on Sat 2 Dec, 11:00, we will be offering a relaxed environment with an introduction by a member of the production team, house lights on low and the volume lowered. This Relaxed Offer does not include a designated break out space for this particular event.

Please see the relaxed resource here.
