The REAL Story of Little Red Riding Hood was originally cast and scheduled in 2020 but was canceled when live performances were shut down due to the pandemic. Little Lot Theater, which is made up of actors 18 years old or younger, will finally bring this show to the stage the first weekend in October.

The cast and crew are very excited to finally perform this show for a live audience, and although Little Red is completely performed by kids, this hilarious show can be enjoyed by audiences of all ages.

Everyone has heard the familiar tale of Little Red Riding Hood and the hungry Wolf, but that's just one side of the story. It's rare we get a chance to hear the infamous Wolf's point of view of this popular story. In this hilarious musical, our compassionate and sympathetic beast is understandably upset. He has been maligned for generations because of the well-known children's parable. Determined to defend his own good intentions, he reveals Red Riding Hood's real nature...rarely shown to the outside world. With an abundance of toe-tapping tunes, this side-splitting cuddly tale will show that there are two sides to every story.

Barn Lot Theater volunteer and Little Red Choreographer, Kyrie-Inn Blue lightheartedly said, "I'm grateful for the opportunity to teach movement to children again! I fully expect the Wolf to be vindicated this go round, and maybe teach that awful brat the lesson she richly deserves!"

Vivien Worthen-Powell, Director of the show had this to say: "Often, there is more than one side to any story. Tragically, many sides go untold and injustices go unnoticed and unknown. Well, our musical The REAL Story of Little Red Riding Hood and Barn Lot Theater will ensure that the Wolf gets his side of the story told. Come see Little Red's side and the Wolf's side of the story of the day they met and the events of that day and you decide who you think is telling the truth. Red? Or the Wolf? We have assembled a talented cast of young people and I hope you can join us the first weekend in October."
