Little Red Riding Hood gets brought up to date

The classic tale of Little Red Riding Hood is being given a twist as it is brought into the 21st century.

The St Peter’s Pantomime Society cast will take to the stage in Monkseaton next week to perform Little Red Riding Hoody.

The panto follows the usually charming young girl as she turns bad.

Thanks to the Three Little Pigs, her storyline has been ruined and things have gone terribly wrong.

In order to return everything to normal, the pigs have to go back in time and rectify their mistake, but the whole cast of the pantomime gets transported through time without them knowing.

Written by Leanne Gilks and Alex Pattison, with imput from Andy Chambers, Little Red Riding Hoody puts a completely different slant on a classic fairytale.

Little Red Riding Hoody will be at Crosskeys Community Hall on Elmwood Road, Monkseaton from Wednesday, January 22, to Saturday, January 25, at 7pm with a 2pm matinee on the Saturday.

Tickets priced at £5 for adults and £4 for children are available by emailing or calling 07752563693.

Proceeds from the show will be split between Crosskeys Community Centre and the Grafters Club.
