A gender switched Wolfie in Theatre Porto's Little Red (as in Riding Hood) means there's an all female cast for this family show at HOME Manchester (November 29-December 6) and at Theatre Porto in Ellesmere Port (December 9-January 13).
The company premiered Little Red back in 2016, but this time the role of jazz–singing Wolfie will be played by Stephanie Greer, completing an all-female cast for the first time.
Theatre Porto artistic director Nina Hajiyianni said: “In our Little Red, Wolfie is battling to keep the family alive as their natural habitat declines. We’ve traditionally had a male wolf, but I became increasingly interested in the story we can tell if the wolf were played by a female performer."
Stephanie said: “Its a fantastic role in such a wonderful show – that quite literally has something for everyone.”
The show is suitable for children aged four and over
