The Garage is teaming up with theatre company All-In Productions to present My First Panto: Little Red Riding Hood, a show devised for children aged two to seven and their families, and a trio of actor-musicians have just been cast to bring the classic story to the stage.

The cast includes singer-songwriter Lisa Wright who has performed in Sunny Afternoon and Someone Once Told Me, Oliver Grant who has been on tour with War Horse and Stick Man, and Joanna Brown whose theatre credits include The Scarecrow's Wedding.

Director Daniel Burgess, who also directed My First Panto: Cinderella at The Garage last year, said: 'I'm really looking forward to getting stuck into rehearsals with the cast.

'They have a wealth of experience and between them have toured the world, topped charts and performed in award winning shows. It's going to make Little Red Riding Hood so magical and so much bigger and better than last year's My First Panto.

'It's also wonderful to have last year's Prince Charming, Lloyd Gorman, back as composer for the show.'

The show - which will run from December 1 to 29 - is completely interactive, with the young audience members invited to get involved in everything from singing and dancing to helping make treats for granny and scaring spiders.
