Red Riding Hood

Theatre for the Community this Christmas

  • Saltmine Theatre Company presents Red Riding Hood hosted by Springs Church at Zoar Chapel, DY3 2PG on Sunday 10th December.
  • Doors open at 3:30pm, performance starts at 4:00pm.
  • The message of the show is “You Belong”
  • Ticket prices: £2 per ticket. (Children aged 0-2 are free).

Come along to this festive re-telling of Red Riding Hood at Zoar Chapel. Saltmine Theatre Company will turn this well-known classic on its head, using magic, music, and lots of comedy to playfully examine ideas of belonging, the meaning of community and what could happen when we follow Jesus’ example to go out of our way to reach the outsider.  

On the longest night of the year, Ruby’s village is preparing for winter’s most extravagant event – welcoming the ‘Light’ at the Christmas Party. However when local hero Austin crashes in to report a dangerous wolf on the loose, the celebration is thrown into jeopardy. Feared to be set on ruining festivities, the wolf is rumoured to threaten the very future of the town. 

Guided by her sense of adventure – and a mysterious summons – it is down to Ruby to journey into the heart of the forest and discover the truth behind the stories. Who can she trust in this deep, dark wood? 

Join us off the beaten track for a modern-day twist on this classic tale, as we come face to face with the big bad wolf and find out what it really means to belong. 

(Ideal for the family) This two-hour production (including interval) is for all ages to enjoy, interweaving a message to consider and entertainment for the season.

Rachael Orrell, CEO at Saltmine Theatre Company said:
“This year, our new Christmas show Red Riding Hood shares the message ‘You Belong’. We are passionate about the intrinsic value of every individual and we believe this show will empower a sense of belonging throughout communities this Christmas.”
