We make it easy by coming to you!Little Red Riding Hood is touring in January 2022
We are excited to confirm the title of our upcoming winter schools tour is Little Red Riding Hood. This brand new show for children aged 4 and over will be touring schools throughout January, offering children one of their first experiences of theatre. We don’t need to have a stage or lighting, all we need is your school hall and a performance space of at least 5m x 5m.
Our touring productions are a catalyst to develop pupil’s storytelling, literacy and drama skills, firing their imaginations and enthusiasm to become familiar with key stories and traditional tales.
Specially created for children ages 3 – 8, our brand new version of this classic children’s story is the perfect introduction to live theatre.
One day, Little Red Riding Hood is sent to visit her Grandma in the woods. Enjoying her walk, she soon forgets the warning to stay on the path and finds herself confronted with a very hungry wolf. With some quick-thinking, Little Red finds her way through and continues her journey to Granny’s house. But as she arrives, she realises all is not as it seems…
Packed with original songs, larger than life characters and lots of opportunities to join in the fun, journey with us on this one-hour long, magical adventure and make lasting memories with your little ones.
Little Red Riding Hood is a brilliantly enjoyable story with themes of family, well-being and growing up responsibly. It’s a perfect tale for reception and key stages 1 and 2.
““The children loved acting out stills from the play and talked a lot about the day in general. It really fired their imagination and felt it was a great experience.””
Key Stages 1 & 2
Little Red Riding Hood directly supports National Curriculum for Key Stage 1 in story-telling, character and narrative, as well as PSHE topics such as valuing people for their similarities and differences, listening to others, sharing and friendship.
For Key Stage 2 the play is a modern adaptation of a traditional tale, which will help to explore language and stimulate key writing skills such as developing characterisation, empathy and imagination.
We do not require you to have a stage or lighting. All we need is a performance space that is 5m x 5m plus space for your pupils, and with a minimum height of 2.3m. We need 1hr 15m to set up and 1hr to clear away.
““The workshops are set at an excellent pace and are a good follow up from the production with a focus on acting elements. They enjoyed acting like the characters whilst learning about promises and friendship.” ”
