Festival Ballet Providence is pleased to present another exciting chatterBOXtheatre program! Created especially for children, this show is going to be an exciting reinvention of one of the oldest fairy tales.
Boyko Dossev, creator of our 2012 chatterBOXtheatre program "Mother Goose Goes to Hollywood", is on board for a second exciting year of brand new choreography. The story is a unique adaptation of the classic fairy tale. Set in modern day Manhattan, with costumes designed by RISD students, this is sure to be a show that our audience - both young and old - won't soon forget!
After the show, the audience is invited to meet the characters of Little Red Riding Hood while enjoying cookies from Seven Stars Bakery and milk.
ChatterBOXtheatre is sponsored by our friends at Seven Stars Bakery.
