Hudson Theatre Works presents "Little Red and the Hoods"

Hudson Theatre Works presents "Little Red and the Hoods"

(WEEHAWKEN, NJ) -- Hudson Theatre Works presents Little Red and the Hoods by Karen Boettcher-Tate. This is their first children’s show in two years. Performances take place Saturday, September 24 and Sunday, September 25 with shows at 1:00pm and 3:00pm each day. Beatriz Esteban-Messina directs this delightful retelling of Little Red Riding Hood, told as modern lessons for today's children.  

A theatre group drops all their costumes, props and scenery in the river. When they realize the audience is waiting for them they decide that the show must go on! They decide to present a slightly different version of well-known story. Little Red is bringing cookies to her Granny when she meets Harry Wolf. He works for the notorious gang leader Ma Sugar Lump who wants to steal the cookie recipe so she can bake them on her own, sell them and get rich! Happily, the plot fails.  This humorous twist on the famous story teaches young audiences to not judge others by their looks, how to protect themselves from strangers, and the importance of reading.  It is fun and educational, and the audience becomes an integral part of the story.

The cast includes Arthur Carlson as Big Bad Wolf, Laura DiCerto  as Little Red, Barbara Espinoza as Granny, Donna Gearhardt-Healey as Ma Sugar Lump and  Wendy Weber-Bratton as the Narrator

Tickets are only $5 for children and $10 for adults. Tickets are available for purchase online.  The show is appropriate for children of all ages. They are requiring that all audience members wear masks. Hudson Theatre Works is located at 80 Hauxhurst Avenue in Weehawken, New Jersey.

Hudson Theatre Works is committed to a growing and adventurous community, genuinely hungry for challenging performances. They choose material that is aesthetically diverse and rooted in authenticity.  From highly theatrical world premieres to distilled re-imaginings of modern classics, they put the work first and embrace risk. Their ticket prices are low because that’s the way they want them to be and they are committed to making their theatre affordable to all.  It’s a conscious decision, not spur of the moment. Broadway ticket prices are unaffordable for far too many people. They want to see people from all economic levels in their audience, from all different backgrounds. HTW is built on the idea of community and shared conversation. Attending a play sparks ideas, examines the experience of our common humanity. In these difficult times, who doesn’t need to be reminded of that?
