Power up your devices—this theatre classic is getting an immersive, cinematic twist your students will love. Red still journeys through the woods to Grand-Mama’s house and the Wolf still has devious dinner plans. But this Red is brave and strong, with plenty of clever tricks up her sleeve. And when two actors take on all the roles in this new digital format, anything can happen! Who could be better at bringing this fast and funny tale into your home than stage and TV director Shannon Flynn, an Emmy Award winner for Sesame Street?
