About the Show/Event
Information for Red Riding Hood at Theatre Royal, Stratford East, Outer London (Panto). Red Riding Hood is a goody good girl who takes food to her sick Granny in the woods - but the wolf sees her going and wants to eat her. Being a theatrical type he avoids the usual 'slash and kill' approach and goes to grannies house where he hides her in a cupboard and climbs into bed in disguise. Red Riding Hood is slow to spot the deception but is fortunately saved by a woodman with an axe! See the classic fairy tale like you've never seen it before, reimagined with a twist or two, and follow the thrilling story of our red-cloaked heroine. Expect Stratford East's much-loved mix of original music, belly-tickling gags and awe-inspiring magic.
