TOTALLY RED!

April-June 2016

by Dinah Toups

Experience theatre in a totally new way! TOTALLY RED!, adapted from the beloved fairy tale “Little Red Riding Hood,” first introduces us to Red (who is nobody’s fool), the wolf (who tries to be cool), and granny (who is sometimes left in the dark). This fast-paced production then adapts the timeless tale to five different theatrical styles: a humorous storybook retelling; melodrama (The Perils of Being Miss Red); Elizabethan (Much Ado About Red); hip-hop (REDz in the Hood); and avant-garde (Call the Moment RED). Written for audiences of all ages, this is the perfect show to both entertain and educate!
