Plenty of traditional panto fun is expected in this Riverside Players production of Red, which opens tonight (Wednesday) until Saturday.

The tale weaves together the stories of Little Red Riding Hood and the Three Little Pigs.

Red was written and directed by Gillian M Coley and Julie Salmon.

Audiences will meet Red as she skips along to visit her grandmother in her cottage unaware there is a very hungry wolf on the prowl.
