Nottingham Playhouse announce cast of Little Red Riding Hood

Nottingham Playhouse has announced the casting for its brand new adaptation of the classic children’s story Little Red Riding Hood. 

Packed with original songs and larger than life characters, this specially created show for children ages 3 – 8 is a perfect introduction to live theatre.

The two-hander, directed by Kitty Winter and adapted by Sarah Middleton, will feature Josie White (Women of Troy – Arcola Theatre, The Tempest – Nottingham Playhouse) as Little Red and Carolyn Murray (The BFG – tour, Sinbad – Watermill Theatre) as Wolf.

Little Red Riding Hood is Nottingham Playhouse’s annual traditional production aimed at younger families.  It sits alongside the theatre’s famous panto, which this year is an all-singing, all-dancing version of Beauty and The Beast.

Little Red Riding Hood takes a fresh look at the tale of the little girl in the red coat. More than anything in the world Lil wants to be a woodcutter, felling trees all day long, just like Chip on the telly. When fearless Granny Red gives Lil a woodcutters kit with a big, shiny axe, she warns that the woods aren’t just for chopping.

Little Red Riding Hood is the latest Nottingham Playhouse production in a long history of festive alternatives to pantomime hailed by critics as “lovingly created theatre for small children”. As well as running in the theatre’s Neville Studio, Nottingham Playhouse tours its festive production to schools and libraries each year.
