Children and their families will see Little Red Riding Hood’s Wolf in an entirely new light when The Theatre at Raritan Valley Community College in Branchburg presents Windmill Theatre’s production of Big Bad Wolf, Saturday, April 16, at 1 and 3:30 p.m. The presentation, the last selection in this season’s Sampler Series, is specially designed for audience members ages four and older and their families. The infamous Big Bad Wolf is the most misunderstood character in fairytale history. Put simply, he has no friends – just incredibly sharp teeth, yellow eyes and his own ideas about personal hygiene. Luckily, Heidi Hood, the second cousin twice removed of Little Red, is brave enough to see past this Wolf’s bad press and an unlikely friendship is born.
This hilarious, table-turning tale – complete with puppetry, a poetry competition, and plenty of dancing – will have audience members wondering why they were so scared in the first place. The Age has called Windmill Theatre’s Big Bad Wolf “A clever, warmhearted parable that…lights up the imaginations of its target audience. It’s an ideal introduction to theatre.” Tickets cost $10 each. Seating is general admission.
