“In this fast-paced, frenetic world, isn’t it comforting to know that some things never change?” posed Artistic Director Ruth Fost when asked about RED RIDING HOOD....  “One of them is the joy and enchantment of stories that begin with ‘Once upon a time.’ The  timeless tales of ‘Princess and the Pea,’ ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes,’ ‘Red Riding Hood’ and ‘All’s Well That Ends Well’ are dressed with a twinkle, a grin and a contemporary spin in this enchanting production.”
