Families and people of all ages are invited to experience a retelling of the beloved tale of Red Riding Hood – with a twist – during Theatre Northwest’s presentation of “Red vs. The Wolf.”
Students will give two performances at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 15, in the Studio Theater at the Ron Houston Center for the Performing Arts on the Northwest Missouri State University campus.
Admission is $3 or two canned goods per person. Tickets may be purchased at the door only. Children ages 2 and under will be admitted for free.
In the play, the sensitive wolf sets the record straight about what really happened that day in the woods. The wolf, it turns out, wasn’t interested in eating Red at all, and Grandma was behind the whole stunt to teach her a lesson.
The play’s author, Judy Wolfman, won the Margaret Bartel Children’s Play Writing Contest for her script in 1987.
“The moral of the story is that we shouldn’t judge people by what others say and take the time to get to know someone,” said Kelsey Bowers, the play’s director and a senior speech and theater education major from Independence.
The play is sponsored by the University’s chapter of Alpha Psi Omega, a national honorary theatre society. Students also will tour with the play to elementary schools in Missouri, Nebraska and Iowa throughout the month.
