“Totally Red” is the standard story about Little Red Riding Hood, who meets the Big Bad Wolf on her way to bring Grandma some goodies. This is a humorous version of the story told in melodrama, Elizabethan, hip hop and avant-garde style. Little Red is “confused,” the Wolf is “cool” and Granny is “left in the dark.” This play is as much fun for the performers as it is for the audience.
The cast includes 18 children from local schools including Spartanburg Christian Academy, Dorman High School, Dawkins Middle School, Oakbrook Preparatory and Fairforest Elementary. TAAG, as the children’s acting group is known, rehearses once a week in USC Upstate’s theatre facilities. They are led by Rich Robinson, professor of theatre, and two of the university’s theatre majors. The group is open to children ages eight to 18. At the end of each semester, the group produces a play for their families, friends and community.
Tickets are $3 per person and can be purchased at the door.
