Little Angel Theatre are bringing a fun family production to the Salisbury Playhouse with a new take on Little Red Riding Hood. Red Riding Hood and the Wolf will be at the Salisbury Playhouse on February 2nd and 3rd.

We all know the tale of Little Red Riding Hood. A little girl goes into the forest on the way to see her grandmother. While she's walking she is spied by a beastly wolf who plans to make the little girl his supper. He comes up with a dastardly plan to ambush her when she finally arrives, but his plan is foiled by the brave huntsman who saves the day. But what if this wasn't how the story really went?

Red Riding Hood and the Wolf is a creative tale dreamed up by a young girl named Robin. She's heard the original story, and she doesn't really relate to the girl in a red hood, or to any of the other princesses and sweet as pie girls that fill most fairy tales. Robin wonders, "what if the Big Bad Wolf wasn't big or bad at all?" Her version of the story comes to life in her bedroom, as toys, clothing and items come to life as characters and props of the tale. It's not just new version of the story, it's a celebration of the imagination of children and an ode to the youngest misfits of this world.

Little Angel Theatre use puppetry and storytelling to create enchanting theatre productions for children and families. Red Riding Hood and the Wolf uses classic puppetry styles like marionettes and shadow puppetry, while also using puppetry techniques to bring 'found objects' in Robin's room to life. It's a bit different from many of Little Angel Theatre's other work, but it's a creative and imaginative way to blend puppetry into the story.

Red Riding Hood and the Wolf is recommended for audience members 7 years and older.
