The production is being staged with the support of Greater Morpeth Development Trust at the New Life Christian Centre, at 4pm.

The seasonal show is a 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 post-festive entertainment for family audiences.

Reviewing the show in our sister paper, the Northumberland Gazette, reporter James Willoughby said: “This talented group’s latest offering, Little Red Riding Hood and Other Stories, was an absolute treat of a show, packed with comedy, entertaining tales and, of course, a happy ending.

“It certainly was a fine family production, which offered something for all ages.”

Tickets are £5 and are available from The Chantry TIC, GMDT on 01670 503866 or the Trust’s Arts and Cultural Director Frank Rescigno on 01670 510743.
