A Fantastical Fairytale
Presented by Engine House in association with Lakeside Arts
Written by Mike Kenny
Directed by Matt Aston
Music and Lyrics by Julian Butler
Design by Laura McEwen
Lighting by Richard Statham
Choreography by Claire Cunningham
Once upon a time there was a young girl who went to spend the night at Grandma’s house … and her little brother came too. She just wanted to go to sleep but he was excited and wouldn’t settle down. To help lull him to sleep, the young girl promised to tell her brother a story. But when you start acting out your favourite fairytale, who knows what’s in store?!
Join the intrepid twosome on a night to remember in Olivier award-winning writer Mike Kenny’s adaption of this classic children’s tale. With music and songs from Julian Butler (Charlie and Lola), Red Riding Hood returns to Lakeside after premiering here in 2011, and promises to be a magical treat for families this Christmas.
Alongside this fantastic production will be another exciting digital installation from Barret Hodgson - find out more here.
You can even listen to the songs from the play in advance and sing-along when you come to watch!
