Little Red Riding Hood

For Kids, By Kids!

July 19 – 20, 2019 Book by William S. Kilborne, Jr. and Albert T. Viola, Music by Albert T. Viola, Lyrics by William S. Kilborne, Jr.

Little Red is wondering why life isn’t more exciting, while Granny shows up in search of the Wolf, who has stolen her bicycle. Granny, who is a karate expert, has no fear of the Wolf, a most unusual creature who is Harvard educated (he wrote his thesis on Wolfgang Mozart), enjoys being evil, and loves little children (on whole wheat toast). When Granny has an accident (she breaks her hand practicing karate on a brick), Little Red sets out to deliver dinner to her. She goes through the woods, where she encounters a variety of forest creatures including, of course, the Wolf, who discovers her destination and arrives at Granny’s house before she does.
