Garlic Theatre (the company that brought you Shoe Kangaroo and the Big Bad Boot, Billy Goats Gruff and last year’s fantastic performance of Jack and The Beans Talk), are joining The Civic for a fresh and funny retelling of a classic fairy tale with their new production Little Red Robin Hood.
A long time ago in a deep dark wood
Lived a brave strong lad who loved Grandma’s pud
And his name was Little Red Robin Hood
There is a merry mix up in the forest when Little Red Riding Hood cannot be found.
Luckily Robin Hood agrees to go on a quest to take some cakes and flowers to Grandma. Will he stay on the path or will he discover the big bad wolf who looks a bit like the Sherriff of Nottingham?
Garlic theatre presents a funny, slapstick, glove puppet show with beautifully crafted puppets, clowning and gentle humor.
“We were treated to an amazing feast of puppets with a wonderful mix of slapstick, suspense, audience participation, and high humour” Walsham Le Willows Village Hall
