A delightful retelling of Little Red Riding Hood told as modern lessons for today's children. A theatre group loses all of their costumes, props & scenery. But they realize the audience is waiting for them so the show must go on! They decide to present a slightly different version of well-known story. Little Red is bringing cookies to her Granny when she meets Harry Wolf. He works for the notorious gang leader Ma Sugar Lump who wants to steal the cookie recipe so she can bake them on her own, sell them and get rich! Happily, the plot fails. This humorous twist on the famous story teaches young audiences to not judge others by their looks, how to protect themselves from strangers, and the importance of reading. It is fun and educational.
