“Little Red and The Hoods” by Karen Boettcher-Tate is a new take on the old classic with heavy audience participation during the show and a dose of modern lessons for today’s children.
As the story goes, of course, Little Red is taking cookies to her grandmother when she encounters Harry Wolf. Harry works for the notorious gang leader, Ma Sugar Lump, and wants to steal the recipe for the cookies. The pack of meanies can then bake more cookies, sell them to others and become rich. Fortunately, their plot fails.
This play teaches its young audiences about not judging people by their looks, how to protect themselves from strangers and the importance of reading. With plenty of participation, this show is both fun and educational at the same time.
