Cast announced for Derby Theatre’s festive production of Little Red Riding Hood for ages 3+ and their families

Grandma... what big eyes you have!

Following the hugely popular Goldilocks and the Three Bears  and The Gingerbread Man,  Derby Theatre and Hiccup Theatre are thrilled to announce the casting for Little Red Riding Hood  at Derby Theatre from Wednesday 4 December to Saturday 4 January.

It’s Christmas Eve and Grandma is not feeling too well…luckily, Little Red has a basket of supplies to save the day. Just keep to the path, don’t stop to pick the flowers, don’t talk to strangers and don’t mention Grandma’s whiskers!

Hiccup Theatre bring you a brand new version of the classic story that is all the better to entertain you with!

Hilarious and heartwarming, magical and musical… Little Red Riding Hood,  featuring beautiful puppetry, fantastic storytelling, a girl with attitude, a wolf with an appetite and amazing live music and original songs, is the perfect festive treat for young theatregoers and their families (and don’t forget grandma!).
