Red Riding Hood

By Lewis Hetherington with Music by Michael John McCarthy
A fun filled festive show for children aged 5+ and their families.
Red Riding Hood

This is the story of a Wolf, a Grandma, and a girl.
A girl who likes to be known as Red.

A regular girl living in a regular home where she loves to read books about superheroes, adventures and, most of all, Christmas! But in the town where she lives, Christmas has been banned.

Tired of following the rules, Red embarks on a mission to bring back Christmas, defeat the big bad Wolf and save Grandma from the deep dark forest. But are things all as they seem?

Join Red on this whirlwind festive adventure as she discovers what it really takes to become a hero!

Along the way you’ll meet pigs in blankets, stumble upon an unexpected love story, join in with some silly songs and as good triumphs over evil, enjoy all the magic of the original tale.

Red Riding Hood takes place at Tramway (25 Albert Dr, Glasgow G41 2PE).

Complete no-holds-barred belter of a show for school-age children and adults
- The Scotsman

You’d have to be as mad as the mayor not to buy a ticket
- The National

This reimagined festive fairytale is a wonderful family treat
- Broadway World

What a way to introduce a new generation to live theatre
- Daily Record

Endearingly batty fun
