Waterville Opera House collaborates with Missoula Children’s Theatre, an internationally recognized touring group, to present week long theatre camps during February and summer vacations for students in grades 1–8. Theatre camp provides children with hands-on opportunities to learn about the theatrical process. Each week concludes with a fully realized performance, with scenery, costumes, and props.
Red Riding Hood
Adapted by Michael McGill
Music and Lyrics by Michael McGill
Over the river and through the woods to Grandmother’s house she goes. Red Riding Hood, not so little anymore, and her pre-teen pals try to stay on the straight and narrow in the latest adventure from the Missoula Children’s Theatre, RED RIDING HOOD. The Big Bad Wolf, who is not so bad after all, and a friendly neighborhood Forest Ranger urge our heroes to stay true to the path, for in the Shadows lurk diversions and a sinister surprise or two. A pack of woefully nasty young wolves and a handsome Woodsman, too good to be true, are a must for our story. And we can’t have a wolf tale without Three Little Pigs and even a Boy Who Cries…you guessed it. With help from her family and a loyal young Locksmith (he carries the key), Red finds her Grandma and a whole lot more. Now if only she could retrieve her picnic basket from those rascally Raccoons. Life is no picnic when you stray from the trail!
