Here's a working draught of

LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD


Our 2019 panto

Girl goes into woods; girl meets wolf; wolf eats Granny; wolf eats girl;
yah-da, yah-da, same old story.

With two twists!
Or is it three?
Or maybe four?

The Characters

The Narrator, who’s just back from Baghdad
Red Riding Hood, whose name is Lisa
Peter, a woodchopper
The Wolf, aka Wolfie or Big Bad
Mother Hood, Red’s mom
Granny Smith, Red’s grandmother
Inky      |
    | two of the Three Little P.I.G.s
Pinky    |

Our spring production

Yes! It's a rock'n'roll musical based on
THE WORST MOVIE OF ALL TIME!

We've now uploaded the script AND music!
Click on the title above!

Ed Wood's 1958 "classic" (for want of a better word) is just awful --
so awful we had to make it into a musical.

Eros and Tanna, two aliens from outer space, plan to
destroy the Earth by raising zombies from the graveyards --
no one is sure how that is supposed to work.
Why are they doing it -- and can they be stopped?

It's camp!
It's silly!
It's got some great songs!
AND
It's in 3-D!!!!!

It's a "science fiction single-feature"!

APRIL 17 to MAY 3 2020

GENERALS DIE IN BED


A re-mount of our hit spring 2019 production,
GENERALS DIE IN BED

and just plain great theatre.
