But how often has it been told from the Wolf’s point of view? Actor’s Theater for Children invites you to attend one of their upcoming performances at Steele Lane Community Center to see for yourself! Yes, this kind and sensitive wolf gentleman is upset, for he has been maligned by society because of a story that has been repeated to generations of children. The wolf is determined to tell the story as it really happened, of the true nature of Red Riding Hood and his own good intentions as well. This hilarious story will show you that there are two sides to every story. Click here for more information including performance dates and times.
