“Little Red Riding Hood”
Our play Little Red Riding Hood, which met the audience in the season 2017 - 2018, has been adapted from the Charles Perrault’s work. “Little Red Riding Hood” is directed by Ünsal Sicilli, its music is composed by Caner Anar and prop and costume are designed by Şebnem Kepkep; the play is produced as an enriched version of the classic tale. The play basically teaches us that we need to be careful with strangers as well as that ignoring our parents’ warnings and leaving the right path may cause too many problems. Deceived by the sly Wolf in the wood, the Little Red Riding Hood can’t keep the promise she gave to her parents, but she realizes everything when she gets to her grandmother. This educative and entertaining play comes to an end after the Woodman and the Hunter saves the Little Red Riding Hood and her Grandma; the play is highly enjoyed by children with its attractive & dynamic tempo, construction, music and other surprises.
