The wolf's cool in Red Riding Hoodie
Posted on January 17, 2008
Panto is back in Eaton Bray - and it has teeth!!
It's been three years since families have enjoyed the fun of Edlesbray Players' seasonal spectaculars but the group is back with the funniest show yet.
There's a novel twist to the classic fairytale of Little Red Riding Hood and a clue can be found in the title. Little Red Riding Hoodie has been especially written for the players by director Pete Farrer with the aim of providing lots of laughs but keeping faith with the original storyline.
"I've stuck fairly close to the original story but in this tale Red gets mugged on her way back from granny's house.
"We try and make out that the wolf isn't really evil. He's just big and bad and a little bit misunderstood!
"It's the first time I've had a go at this so I'm keeping my fingers crossed it will be all right on the night!
"Things nearly didn't go according to plan when I walked out of rehearsals the other night and the wind blew my script away. We were all running around a graveyard in the dead of night trying to round up missing pages!"
"We hope the public will enjoy this grass roots panto. I know there are a lot of professional shows around at the moment but we aim to inject a bit of fun and hope that everyone will enjoy watching it as much as we enjoy performing in it."
Little Red Riding Hoodie is being performed at Eaton Bray Village Hall on January 24, 25 and 26, including a matinee performance on Saturday, Jan 26. Tickets are available from the Box Office (01525 222283). There is a licensed bar for all evening performances and a raffle.
