Little Red Riding hood talking to Harry Wolf

This delightful tale of Little Red Riding Hood is told with modern lessons for today’s children.  As the story goes, of course, Little Red is taking cookies to her grandmother when she encounters Harry Wolf.  Harry works for the notorious gang leader, Ma Sugar Lump, and wants to steal the recipe to the cookies.  The pack of meanies can then bake more cookies, sell them to others and become rich!  Fortunately, their plot fails.  This play teaches its young audiences about not judging people by their looks, how to protect themselves from strangers and the importance of reading.  With plenty of participation, this show is both fun and educational at the same time.

For more information about TOYS or if you would like to make a tax deductible donation, you may contact us at, visit our website at, or check out our facebook under Theatre  Organization for Youth by Students for immediate updates about shows and activities!
