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.

Customer Reviews

"This is a great production if you have a small cast. If you were looking for a full musical, this is not it it just has one musical scene. With a couple of songs ... "
Review by Amy Staples, Brentwood College School, Mill Bay, British Columbia
"This play honors so many amazing genres of theater and gives the actors an awesome opportunity to develop characters."
Review by Angel Opdahl, Harvey Wells County, Manfred, N.D.
"A fun, educational show that students love to perform. Both the actors and the audience learn more about different genres of theatre. The Hip-Hop and the Avant-Garde sections were the students' favorites."
Review by Irene Miller, Crystal Sea Drama Company, San Antonio, Texas

Hints, Tips, and Tricks

"Keep the set simple. Have the actors wear a base costume that's black, then add red or gray pieces on top to indicate the characters and the time periods - for example the red cape for Little Red, a villain's cape for the Melodrama villain, hoodies for the Hip-Hop section."
Tip by Irene Miller, Crystal Sea Drama Company, San Antonio, Texas
