The Riverside Players present their pantomime, Red,at Newton Poppleford Village Hall.

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

It was written and directed by Gillian M Coley and Julie Salmon, with plenty of all the elements of traditional pantomime fun.

Little Red Riding Hood skips along to visit her grandmother, played by Marc Colson, in her cottage in the forest every day, and all is well with the world. The Three Little Pigs decide that they would like to live in the forest as well, so they each build themselves a house.
