SYNOPSIS: The musical begins where the story of Little Red Riding Hood ends. Little Red is bored with her story and with the help of Toby the Dragon, sets off to find new adventures.
Little Red Riding Hood – Female – older child to teen
Grandmother, Witch 1, Witch 2 – Female – Would prefer an adult actor but will consider an older teen
The roles of the witches are comedic in nature.
It is possible the roles will be split among different actors.
Woodsman, Hansel, Prince, Knight – Male – Would prefer an actor in their 20’s or 30’s but will consider an older teen.
The actor should be able to handle multiple characters and bring an individual reality to each one. It is also possible that the roles will be split among several actors.
Toby the Magic Dragon – Male – Child or Teen
Toby is a puppet that will be operated by the actor who will also speak Toby’s lines. Ability to do different dialects is a plus.
Magic – Male or Female
This is a non-speaking role but an important part of establishing the magic of the show, hence the name. The actor should be able to move well as there is some stylized movement of this character—not dance but a smooth, flowing aspect to the movements.
