Did you know that Little Red Riding Hood had two other sisters-Big Green Riding Hood and Medium Purple Riding Hood? Back in the kingdom of Wychwood-Under-Ooze, Wise Prince Jason (winner of the Math Olympics and the Nobel Prize), Strong Prince Justin (who can bench press his own mother) and ordinary Loud Prince Frank all want to woo Little Red Riding Hood. So the king and queen hire the Fairy Godmother-after all, this is a fairy tale-to set three tasks for the princes to perform. Only the prince who can find the missing girl, defeat the dragon and awaken a castle visitor from her slumber earns the right to woo Wed Widing Hood that is, Red Riding Hood! Alas, Little Red’s couch-potato parents don’t want to lose their little girl. How else will they get their cookies delivered to Grandmother? So they hire the evil queen to thwart the Fairy Godmother’s contest. Complete with the big bad wolf and more twists than a roller coaster, this fractured fairy tale adventure, easy to produce and great for audiences and performers of all ages, is guaranteed to end in happily-ever-after laughter.
I really liked the play. Wooing Wed Widing Hood was one of the funniest things I’ve ever heard of.

A creative and hilarious production. We were amazed at how much our son enjoyed being part of the fun.

Wooing Wed Widing Hood is a rare and magical children’s play, which is so fresh and cleverly written that the audience hangs on every word so as not to miss the hilarity of the next line. The wildly creative plot and the riotous dialogue equally captivate both adults and children. It is the perfect fairy tale for the new millennium.
