• Christmas at the Lyric: Little Red Riding Hood

    Produced by The Lyric Theatre

    5th Dec 2020 - 3rd Jan 2021


    £8.00- £26.00

The stage is set, the moon is full and and the story of Little Red Riding Hood & the Big Bad Wolf is about to get interesting!  Make a special family evening at home this Christmas - pour a hot chocolate, grab some treats and snuggle up on the sofa to re-live this spectacular family show.


Our 2015 Christmas spectacular will be available for you to watch online from 5th December 2020.  You can also wrap up the Christmas experience with one of our bespoke Christmas Goodie hampers from Aunt Sandra's.

Everyone knows the story of Little Red Riding Hood. But who has ever thought about the real events behind the story? Where Rosie’s dear old Granny lived, for instance, and whether the Big Bad Wolf was really killed by the Woodsman. Certainly not the ramshackle troupe of travelling actors who roll into a town in the middle of nowhere one day to perform their take on the story.  Written by award-winning Derek O’Connor, directed by Cahoots NI’s artistic director Paul Bosco McEneaney, with music by Irish Musical Comedy Awards winner Ursula Burns, and starring Kyron Bourke as Big Bad.

Age recommendation: 5+
