Cast: 3m., 2w., with doubling, or up to 30+ (10m., 7w., 9+ either gender). This is a unique and fun retelling of the classic battle of wit and deception as told in the beloved fairy tale of Little Red Riding Hood. We meet Red (who is nobody's fool) and the wolf (who tries to be cool) and granny—well, sometimes she's left in the dark! These lively roles are great for teen and young adult actors. Totally RED! begins with a humorous version in storybook theatre style. The story continues with three to five minute retellings of sections within the tale, told in multiple styles: melodrama (The Perils of Being Miss Red); Elizabethan (Much Ado About Red); '80s hip-hop slang (REDz in the Hood); and avant-garde (Call the Moment RED). There is also an additional scene in American musical style, RED! The Musical!. This play is as much fun for the performers as it is for the audience. Simple set. Suitable for touring. Neutral costumes with layered character pieces. Approximate running time: 40 minutes.
Please Note: the same book is used for both the musical and non-musical. When ordering your cast set of scripts, choose the musical or non-musical version according to your production. Thank you!
