Premiere Stages presents Pushcart Players, New Jersey’s renowned touring theatre for young audiences in “RED RIDING HOOD…and other stories”. This event will take place on Wednesday, July 25 at 11 a.m. in the Wilkins Theatre. A favorite at Kean University, Pushcart celebrates its 38th year this season.
“In this fast paced, frenetic world, isn’t it comforting to know that some things never change?” posed Fost when asked about RED RIDING HOOD.... “One of them is the joy and enchantment of stories that begin with ‘Once upon a time.’ The timeless tales of ‘Princess and the Pea,’ ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes,’ ‘Red Riding Hood’ and ‘All’s
Well That Ends Well’ are dressed with a twinkle, a grin and a contemporary spin in this enchanting production.”
