Little Red Riding Hood: The Panto

riding_hood_flierby Teri Fitsell and Katy Forse

November 30 – December 2 & December 6 – 9, 2012
Shouson Theatre, HK Arts Centre, Wanchai

This December, we follow Little Red Riding Hood on her journey through the woods as she searches for true love, tries to avoid being eaten by the Big Bad Wolf, and gets fed up with her parents. The villagers are living in the shadow of the Wolf, but in true panto fashion they sing and dance their troubles away – with a bit of help from a Dame-shaped visitor from far far away.

Hong Kong Players’ annual pantomime features a brand-new script, fabulous songs, and will need a lot of cheering and booing from the audience! Come and join our all-singing, all-dancing cast in this locally-produced show filled with festive holiday joy. Enjoy Christmas while you can because before you know it – it’s behind you!
