LIttle Red Riding Hood, Cape Town, 14 March to 9 April
This delightful fairytale follows the well-loved story of the naughty little girl who disobeys her mother and, instead of taking the safe road to visit her granny, goes into the wood, where she encounters a big bad wolf (in this adaptation a rather stupid Loopy-de-Loop type who is an ex-Music Hall star). Red Riding Hood learns some important lessons along the way and, as in all good fairy tales, lives happily ever after.
Highlights of the show include a Rock-and-Roll Granny, and the Wolf's striptease will have the kids rolling about with laughter.
Adapted and directed by Elton John Duffy
Music and Lyrics by Pippa Duffy
Choreography by Nikki Louw
With Nikki Louw as Red Riding Hood, Liande Valentyn as Granny and Red Riding Hood's Mother, Karen Visser as Jimmy the Woodcutter and Elton John Duffy as the Big Bad Wolf.
