“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.

The Aledo High School Theatre Department will present Rock of Ages, High School Version, Jan. 24-27 in the AHS Auditorium. Shows are at 7 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sunday.
This show takes place at the end of the ‘80s in Hollywood, and the party has been non-stop! Big hair, Aqua Net, Lycra, and Heavy Metal have just about run their course on Hollywood’s Sunset Strip.
This version takes place at the Snake Pit, where legendary rocker Stacee Jaxx is preparing for his last hurrah. Amid the madness, aspiring rock star Drew longs to take the stage as the next big rock-n-roll idol. He is head over heels for Sherri, fresh off the bus from Kansas with stars in her eyes.
But the rock-and-roll fairy tale is about to end when German developers sweep into town with plans to turn the fabled Strip into just another cookie-cutter strip mall. Can Drew, Sherri, and the gang save the Pit – and themselves – before it's too late? Only the music of hit bands Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake and more hold the answer.
Rock of Ages HS version is a slightly different storyline than you may have seen. This version’s subject matter has been adjusted to be appropriate for families and a high school audience. PG rating.
General Admission seating is $15 for adults and $12 for seniors or students. Aledo High School Auditorium doors open 30 minutes prior to show. Concessions will be available. Tickets available at the door, cash or check only, or buy online from Aledo Theatre Boosters website.
