“Sit by the fire and we’ll tell you a tale…” The Brookside Theatre, are proud to present an exciting musical, based on the tale of Little Red Riding Hood.

Join a troupe of travelling gypsies as they gather round the camp fire by the edge of a dark wood to tell stories. The sound of wolves howling from deep within the forest leads the characters to tell the story of one of their ancestors – a mysterious girl who wore a red hood.

Written by multi award-nominated writer and composer, Paul Boyd and produced by the team that brought you Peter Pan The Musical, Oliver! and The Canterville Ghost, this beautiful musical cleverly retells the many different versions of the timeless fairy tale of Little Red Riding Hood from the lighter children’s versions to the darker variants told over the centuries.

The theatre’s Artistic Director, Jai Sepple explains, “We are truly honoured to be working on Paul Boyd’s imaginary musical and bringing this future classic to the London stage. We have had as much fun working on the show – even building a full size gypsy caravan – and I know, the audience will get just as much enjoyment out of the show when they join us. Young or old, who doesn’t love a good fairy tale?”

Packed full of energy and fun, the talented cast of five perform a cavalcade of songs in different styles including country, blues and rock ‘n’ roll.

A theatrical treat for audiences of all ages – an unforgettable musical experience of the one of the oldest tales ever told.
