ONCE UPON A CRIME – THE CAUTIONARY TALE OF RED RIDING-HOODIE by Cheryl Barrett

£3.50

A cautionary rhyming tale of Red Riding-Hoodie and her nemesis, Biggbad Wolf. Biggbad is in court accused of threatening behaviour towards Red. He uses all his wolfly wiles to charm the jury and clear his name. But there’s more to this case than at first thought.

A great script for schools and youth groups. The script contains useful production notes and suggestions for songs.
