    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. This play is as much fun for the performers as it is for the audience. Learn More
