Olney Theatre Center Institute presents
Red Riding Hood: A New Fable
by Michael Kelly
directed by Ashleigh Millett
March 29 - April 7 • On the Historic Stage
When studious and shy Millie has to do a project on a fairy tale for her 1st grade class, she laughs at the thought but is scared to present in front of her class. As her imagination begins to blend fact and fiction together, the story of Little Red Riding Hood becomes more real than she could think! Children’s Show (For Ages 3 and up)

Over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house we go as The Olney Theatre Center presents Red Riding Hood: A New Fable. A rollicking twist on this classic Brothers Grimm tale, the children will have quite the experience with Millie as she conquers first grade with a new teacher, her imagination and of course her love of reading.

OUR KIDS • APRIL 2, 2012 • BY KATHLEEN SEILER NEARY
Playwright Michael R. Kelly puts a new twist on the classic tale Little Red Riding Hood by centering the story on a first grader who puts a new twist on Little Red Riding Hood for an assignment. The result is a glimpse into the imaginative world of brainy-beyond-her-years six-year-old Mildred (get it? "Red" is in her name).
New Take on 'Little Red Riding Hood' at Olney
BALTIMORE OUTLOUD • APRIL 2, 2012 • BY STEVE CHARING
It’s always a roll of the dice when you bring children under age 10 to the theater. You never know if the action on the stage will keep them interested or will they be fidgety. A dandy little production of Red Riding Hood: A New Fable, being served up by Olney Theatre Center Institute, the education division of the Olney Theatre Center, kept those kids well entertained.
