Red Riding Hood and the Wolf

Here is where our story starts.
A gentle wolf with a broken heart…
The wolf isn’t big or bad, in fact he’s rather shy.
He won’t gobble up your grandma, he’s an all-round nice guy.

You all loved Wow! Said the Owl so much last Christmas that we’ve invited Little Angel Theatre to come back to celebrate with us this year!

You may think you know the story of Red Riding Hood, sugar and spice and all things nice. But there are two sides to every story, so let’s hear it from the Wolf himself! Here’s the story never heard of a kind and hungry wolf who strayed from the path and lost his friends.

This wolf isn’t big or even bad, in fact he’s rather shy. He won’t gobble up your grandma or tell you lies. He’s polite and very gentle, he’s an all-round nice guy.

So before you make up your mind about the wolf you think you know so well, enjoy a whole new spin on this fairy tale and remember to never judge anyone by how they look!

“An entertaining, fun production… Charlotte Croft is fantastic as our guide on this journey, very expressive and full of energy, without being over the top or annoying… If you fancy a family show that is suitable for ages 6 and upwards that is fun, entertaining and has a strong message [then] this is the perfect show for you.” – The Reviews Hub

“The 50 minutes had the audience enthralled… the production is a triumph of imagination thanks to ingenious use of everyday objects to convey well-known characters… As shows aimed at little minds go, it worked.” – Northern Soul

“Most importantly of all, it was clever… The adults could appreciate the witty, dark humour and the older kids sat in awe; laughing when it was funny, silent at the dramatic peaks… Finally, Robyn climbed into bed, the lights went out, and the audience were pleasantly satisfied.” – The Northern Quota

“Visually appealing and inventive throughout… [A] classy-looking reworking of this well-known story.” – British Theatre Guide

“The story is told in such a creative way that you forget it’s essentially a one-woman show and the puppets/toys used are wonderful for a child’s imagination… We thoroughly enjoyed this production.” – Rambling Through Parenthood

Reviews

  • “Cheery rhyming verse invites us to see both sides of the story… [And] a new and charming way of introducing an old story to a fresh audience”

    - Time Out
  • “A mischievous, alternative take on on the Red Riding Hood fairytale. Imaginative, ingenious”

    - Children's Theatre Reviews
  • “[A] wonderful retelling of the old familiar classic… Tennis rackets become trees and teapots become angry mothers in this wonderful world of imagination… What makes this adaptation exception is the care visible throughout, and the magic in ordinary things.”

    - Curious Mum
  • “A comic edge, catchy tunes and an uplifting ending… A stunning performance and a show that has something that will speak to everyone”
