Price includes: photocopiable script, songsheets, CD with vocals and backing tracks,
sheet music for original songs only, 1 year performance licence for schools

This show has no seasonal references, and can be performed at any time of the year. It follows the traditional pantomime story, but on her way to granny's house, Red Riding Hood makes new friends in the form of nursery rhyme characters. Although it appeals to younger casts (5-10 year olds) it has been enjoyably performed by children up to 13 and even older students with special needs. In my school, the youngest class played the parts of the "insects" in a very spectacular dance routine. The script is very simple, and if necessary it can be easily adapted to the ages/abilities of the actors, perhaps with some adlibs or role play additions suggested by the children. Even without additions, it runs for approx 40-50 mins. The script has also been used by youth and adult theatres staging a show for a young audience. The script is supported by a 22-track CD containing a mix of brand new original songs and well-known nursery rhymes set to music. The songs are supplied with vocals (for rehearsing) and as backing tracks (for performance)

Extract from "Red Riding Hood in Fairyland"- condensed for this web page (you get a nice child-friendly script!)

Scene 1: The Forest
Three Pigs' houses are on stage. One made of straw, one made of sticks, one made of bricks. Three Pigs are hiding "inside".
Narrator: Welcome welcome one and all. Welcome to our school hall. You will see Red Riding Hood, A little girl who wasn't good. She didn't do what mummy said, I think she must be off her head! Her mummy said stay on the path. But she went off it for a laugh! We hope you have a lovely time. Welcome to our pantomime! Once upon a time, there was a little girl. She always wore a red cloak with a hood. So everyone called her Red Riding Hood. Look! Here she comes now.
(Enter Red Riding Hood, sadly with a basket of cakes.)
Narrator: Red Riding Hood was on her way to her granny's house to take her a basket of cakes. But on the way she took a short cut and became lost. She was very sad and lonely. Suddenly she saw three little houses. She wondered who lived there. Perhaps they could show her the way to grannyís house. She went to the first little house. It was made of straw. She knocked on the door.
Pig 2 : Whoís that knocking on my door? It must be the big bad wolf for sure! Go away!
Narrator: The next little house was made of sticks. She knocked on the door.
Pig 2 : Whoís that knocking on my door? It must be the big bad wolf for sure! Go away!
Narrator: The next little house was made of bricks. She knocked on the door.
Pig 3: Whoís that knocking on my door? It must be the big bad wolf for sure! Go away!
Narrator: Red Riding Hood sat down and wept. The pigs saw that it wasnít the big bad wolf. So they cautiously came out of their houses and said hello.
Pig 1, 2 and 3: Hello boys and girls!
Pig 1: (to Red Riding Hood): Why are you crying, little girl?
Red Riding Hood (sobbing): Iím lost!
Pig 2: Youíre not lost! I know where the path is! Itís over there! Iíll show you.
Narrator: The kind little pig showed Red Riding Hood her way back to the path. She said thank you and waved goodbye. (Exit Red Riding Hood) But just then, there was a strange howling noise! The 3 pigs ran home!
(ENTER WOLF) Wolf: (Howls, looking for the pigs) Come out come out, wherever you are.! To audience: Hah hah Hah! (Boo!) I'm hungry. I fancy a bacon sandwich! (Howls) I'm the big bad wolf. I'm looking for the three little pigs. WHERE ARE THEY? DO YOU KNOW WHERE THEY ARE? I'm going to EAT THEM UP! Then, I think I'll eat YOU too! Hah Hah Hah. (Boo!) Aha! I think they live in these houses! (He goes to the first house, made of straw.) Little Pig! Little Pig! Let me come in!
Pig 1: Yikes. Not by the hair on my chinny chin chin! I won't let you in.
Wolf: Then I'll huff, and I'll puff, and I'll blow your house of straw down! (House falls over. Wolf chases little pig around the stage. Pig1 runs into house of sticks with Pig2) Little pigs! Little Pigs! Let me come in!
Pig1 and Pig2: Not by the hair on our chinny chin chin! We won't let you in!
Wolf: Then I'll huff, and I'll puff, and I'll blow your house of sticks down!
(House falls over. Wolf chases Pig1 and Pig2 around the stage. They run into house of bricks, with Pig3.) Little pigs! Little Pigs! Let me come in! Pig1,2 and 3: Not by the hair on our chinny chin chin! We won't let you in!
Wolf: Then I'll huff, and I'll puff, and I'll blow your house of bricks down!
(House doesn't fall. Wolf tries again. I'll huff, and I'll puff etc.) Pig1,2, and 3: Yah boo! Neah Neah! You can't get us now! This house is made of bricks. You can't blow it down.

>>>>>>>> Song: Bad luck, Mr Wolf <<<<<<<<<<<<
Wolf (Going into audience): What are you lot laughing at. I'm getting really hungry now. (To individual members of audience:) You look nice and meaty. Shall I eat you? Hah Hah Hah (Audience Boo!) Or what about you? You look tasty. Grrrr. Hah Ha Hah (Audience Boo!)
Narrator: Just then, the wolf stopped to sniff the air. He could smell sheep!
Wolf: I can smell sheep! Yum Yum! Iíll go and get a sheep for my dinner! But Iíll be back! (EXIT WOLF)
(Enter Bo Peep, Boy Blue, 4 sheep and Wags the Dog. Boy Blue goes to a ďhaystackĒ and falls asleep.))
Bo Peep: (to audience:) Oh, hello boys and girls. My name's Bo. Bo Peep! We look after the sheep in this field, don't we, Wags?
Wags: Ruff!
Bo Peep: Do you like my sheepdog? He's called Wags. You're a clever dog, aren't you, Wags? (Wags says Ruff) Sit up and beg, Wags. (Wags sits up and begs with a begging bowl)
