2022 Production - Little Red and the Riding Hoods
By JEN MCVETTY
Produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service, Inc., Denver, Colorado.

Who wants the same old “heard-it-before” tale of Little Red Riding Hood when there’s a much wilder version waiting in the wings? That’s what an ambitious stagehand wants to know. Tired of sitting through yet another boring performance put on by a pompous narrator and his untalented group of actors — including his niece as the lead, a super-nerdy wolf and some disgruntled extras who are reduced to playing trees — the stagehand wants to bring in a truly talented actress to play Little Red, the leader of a motorcycle gang called the Riding Hoods! 
Of course, the haughty narrator refuses to let the “lowly” stagehand have his way, so the stagehand must think of creative ways to coax him offstage so that the jazzed-up show can go on! In the new version, all the characters are ultra cool (even Granny), and the extras are much happier revving motorcycles than clutching branches! (Don’t worry — we never actually see the bikes!) 
When the traditional and modern stories finally collide, a chaotic chase scene ensues, resulting in many upset actors.  The Fairy Godbrothers are called in to straighten out the mess and leave us with a happy ending:  the Big Bad Wolf is recognized as the Little Good Wolf he truly is, the narrator’s niece discovers her calling as an accountant and (almost) everyone learns a lesson about the importance of valuing others!
