Red Riding Hood is Norwich Puppet Theatre's exciting production in collaboration with acclaimed children's theatre director and designer, Peter O'Rourke.

The show is a lively re-telling of the traditional folktale drawing on the story’s origins in the oral tradition and versions by Charles Perrault and the Brothers Grimm. The performance combines inventive staging with a rich mix of puppetry and songs which will delight all ages.
