LEWISTON – The Public Theatre in collaboration with Out of the Box Theater will perform “Little Red,” a new musical comedy for children and their families, on Sunday, May 17. A giggle for grown-ups as well as children, this hip and funny adaptation of the classic story “Little Red Riding Hood” features vegetarian wolves, an American Idol wanna-be Little Red, toe-tapping songs and a Maine forest ranger.

The cast, made up of many Out of the Box Theater company members, includes Mariah Perry as Little Red, Alice Ruvane as Mother Hood, Patricia Phillips as Grandmother Hood, Levi Galloway as Teen Wolf, Paul Caron as Daddy Wolf, and Duane Glover as Deputy Forest Ranger Bill.

The production is directed by Linda Britt and choreographed by Mariah Perry. Set design is by Jennifer Madigan and lighting design by Stan Spilecki.

Shows are at 1 and 3 p.m. Tickets are $5 each for children 12 and under; $10 for adults. This show runs about 45 minutes and is perfect for children prekindergarten through grade 5, but is entertaining for adults, as well.

For tickets, call 782-3200 or visit www.thepublictheatre.org.

The Public Theatre is also offering weekday morning performances for schools and groups at 9:30 and 11:30 a.m. on May 18, 19, 20 and 21. Reservations are required for these performances.
