Little Red Wagon Theatre Group to perform at Old Home
The Old Home Day committee
will host the University of New Hampshire’s LITTLE
RED WAGON professional children’s theatre troupe on
Sat., July 23 at 10:00am at the Gazebo in Dustin
Park for a performance of “Totally Red!”
The theatre troupe performs for children and family
audiences at schools, libraries, festivals, fairs,
banquets, hospitals, recreation centers, state parks,
camps and churches. The Little Red Wagon is the
longest running nonprofit, children’s theatre tour in
the U.S and performs at nearly 70 locations in New
England each summer. Founded in 1971, The Little
Red Wagon became a grassroots model program for the
State of NH and was instrumental to the introduction of
Theatre Education into the public school system as a
supportive tool for reading and learning.
The Little Red Wagon’s “Totally Red!” is a retelling of
the popular fairytale Little Red Riding Hood.
However, during the play the story is retold many times
using different theatrical conventions from various
theatre genres ranging from: storytelling, 80's Hip Hop
theatre, Elizabethan, Avante Garde and Musical Theatre.
Audiences of all ages will enjoy this enduring tale.
For information regarding
this show, call Andi Riel at 435-6346. For
