Little Red Riding Hood:
She’s off on an adventure! Join Little Red as she journeys to visit her young-at-heart Grandma, and encounters a not-so-scary wolf. Join us for this refreshed version of a classic tale of bravery and discovery.

Performances by adult actors combine energetic storytelling, audience participation, live music, improvisation and stagecraft education to introduce children to self expression, dramatic play and the performing arts.
Children visit with the characters before the show, can share a joke or special talent during the show, and explore our costumes boxes with the actors afterwards. Come and experience the joyful magic of the Fairy Tale Players!

Thoughts from our audience members:

"Great staging, music and movement! We especially loved the non-scary costuming and the opportunity for children to do a little bit of their own pretending by opening the costume boxes after the performance. A terrific introduction to live theater!"
- Corinne Fisher, Head of Children's Services, Reading Public Library

"Thank you, for all you do! I really appreciate the opportunity to introduce my kids to live theater in an age-appropriate way. And I love that they can experience storytelling without technology, commercials, or potty humor. (Sorry, SpongeBob!)"
- A. Mici

"The girls have enjoyed both of your performances very much and we greatly appreciate your efforts to bring family friendly dramatic performance to North Andover. Yeah! Finally something in our backyard! All 3 of my girls told me tonight that the play was their favorite thing they did all weekend - and keep in mind that we got and decorated an Xmas tree, made chocolate chip cookies, and played at the park - and you still beat the competition hands down."
- K. Brenneman
