The Red Bike Performance Company, the College’s newest theatrical endeavor, will present an original play by Kristy Dunlap-Berg ’10, titled “Little Red Riding Hood: A Wood Cutter’s Tale,” at 2 p.m. Sunday, June 6, in Madden Theater. This free show is for faculty, staff and interested students. Admission is free.
Funded by a Coleman Grant, Red Bike is a touring company comprised of North Central students who write, direct and act their original children’s theater productions. Red Bike endeavors to develop a partnership with Naperville area schools to support their curriculum and inspire discussions among teachers and their students, while offering fresh and original entertainment.
“Little Red Riding Hood” deals with issues all kids must face, such as dealing with peer pressure and finding true friendship. Dunlap-Berg presents these and more issues through a hilarious exploit with a nod or two to Shakespeare. After the show, stay for a talkback with the writer, director and actors, led by Susan Craig-Olsen, lecturer of theatre.
