"The Real Story of Little Red Riding Hood" at The Media Theatre presents two versions of the fable in a comedic fashion for ages 4 and up. The first version is the one we all know in which a wolf disguises himself as Grandma to attack the girl in the red outfit. But, what we don't know is the second version of the story in which the girl is totally annoying and Grandma makes a deal with the Wolf to teach her a lesson in humility.
