About: Seeing Red is a brand new adult musical comedy that takes tropes of children’s theater (puppets, magic, fairy tale characters) and spins them on their head! Red Riding Hood, now a grown woman, spends her days joylessly making deliveries to princesses who seem to be living their perfect happily ever-afters. Her delivery truck and her life take a big left turn when she meets the Man From Nantucket who convinces her to smuggle the downtrodden Limerick characters over Humpty Dumpty’s wall into the fairy tale utopia, Everafteropolis. The Big Bad Wolf will do everything he can to stop them, including murder.
Development: Seeing Red won the 2019 TRU (Theatre Resources Unlimited) Voice reading series award which resulted in a public reading of the show presented by Laura Kriete-Bain. In addition to a table read, they did an industry reading staring Kerry Butler and Charl Brown
