Little Red Riding Hood offer pantomime alternative at Nottingham Playhouse
Children's classic Little Red Riding Hood offers an alternative to the traditional pantomime at Nottingham Playhouse this festive season.
Packed with original songs and larger than life characters, this specially created show for children ages three to eight is a perfect introduction to live theatre.
It will show from tonight through to January 1.
Little Red Riding Hood is Nottingham Playhouse’s annual traditional production aimed at younger families, which sits alongside the theatre’s pantomime.
It takes a fresh look at the tale of the little girl in the red coat. More than anything in the world Lil wants to be a woodcutter, felling trees all day long, just like Chip on the telly. When fearless Granny Red gives Lil a woodcutters kit with a big, shiny axe, she warns that the woods aren’t just for chopping.
Rejected by the Woodcutters for not being ‘super strong and mega muscly’, Lil sets off into the forest to return to Granny. And, when she meets Wulfrick – a wolf who can’t stop snacking – can they learn together how precious the woods are and what it really means to be strong?
The show stars Josie White as Little Red and Carolyn Murray as the wolf.
