Little Red Riding Hood

Saturday, January 26th, 2019
10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. performances
by Wichita Children’s Theatre & Dance Company

Please note the updated date due to inclement weather.

Audiences will love this musical comedy adaptation, written by Kevin M. Reese, of the very popular fairy tale, Little Red Riding Hood. Follow Little Red as she makes her way through the forest to Grandma’s house to give her some goodies that her mother prepared. Along the way she meets a Wolf, a silly Wolf who’d never harm  anybody. The Wolf is so hungry that he’ll do anything to get the goodies that are in Little Red’s basket; he even goes as far as to pretend he’s Little Red’s Grandma. Well, little does he know, Grandma has something in store to teach him a lesson. Little Red learns not to talk to strangers and the Wolf learns not to trick people, especially people who live next to a poison ivy patch.
