The seasonal show is a new combination of fairy tales in the form of a collection of funny and scary stories, including Little Red Riding Hood and The Wolf and The Fox, making ideal festive entertainment for family audiences.

With lots of music, chilling moments and plenty of laughs, it promises to be imaginative storytelling at its best.

Based at Alnwick Playhouse, the NTC is a seasoned rural touring company and has toured with Highlights for many years with popular shows such as Pinocchio, Beauty and The Beast, and more recently The Ugly Duckling.

Little Red Riding Hood follows on from How to Make a Killing in Bollywood.
