Red Riding Hood
New Wolsey Theatre

Brilliantly designed by Barney George, Red Riding Hood was a great opportunity for us to put on our thinking caps.

Always a tricky build, the New Wolsey Theatre is not your typical Prosc arch theatre. Each years panto utilises the thrust stage as much as possible and spreads itself up from the stage to the walls and balcony of the auditorium. Complete with multiple sliding panels up on the balconies the scene changes are in no way limited to the swapping of portals on the flying system.
