            This ensemble musical is truly a family affair, with a young cast bringing to life the work of father, composer and playwright, David Buckley. Geared toward a younger audience, this show delivers the classic tale of Little Red Riding Hood with catchy original folk-rock music and is well suited for younger audiences. The musical talent of the cast was evident and the stage & costume design far exceed your typical Fringe experience. Having said that, some technical difficulties with mics and extremely low lighting hindered the opening performance of this show, making some of the songs difficult to follow. The story of the show also fell a bit flat in content — while the music was exceptional, the story itself does not wander from the path and presents a two-dimensional moral world where everyone has good within and all can be forgiven with a simple apology. At times, I really struggled to understand motivations of certain characters and the purpose of the story seems more to get us from song to song than to really tell a story.

            This show is great for anyone interested in catchy music performed by consummate professionals, but will leave something to be designed for narrative driven audiences.
