“We’ve all heard the story of Little Red Riding Hood. But how often has it been told from the Wolf’s point of view? Yes, this kind, sensitive wolf gentleman is upset, for he has been maligned by society because of a story that has been repeated to generations of children. He is determined to tell the story as it really happened, of the true nature of Red Riding Hood and his own good intentions.” – from Pioneer Drama

This show is appropriate for all audiences. The run time for this show is approximately 40 minutes, and there is no intermission.

Safety protocols will be followed, including social distancing and masks for all patrons, to be worn over nose, mouth and chin.

Educator shares takeaway from community read conversation
On Sept 8, the Glenbard Parent Series hosted Wes Moore as part of its first semester community read in a conversation based on his book “The Other Wes Moore: One Man, Two Fates.”

Watch a five-minute recording of  Moore’s answers to  questions posed  by Glenbard  students at this link.

Kristin Brandt, Glenbard West social studies department chair, shared the following takeaway from the program:  “The evening with Wes Moore was thought-provoking and inspiring. His experiences caused me to reflect about the importance of family –

family by blood or by choice – and seizing the opportunities presented to us when they are available. His advice that he borrowed from his grandparents “have faith, not fear” helped to guide his actions and he hopes will help to guide others.”
