Terrapin Puppet Theatre reimagines everyone's favourite characters from the famous fairytale into the small town of Grinalong. When the new mayor announces the return of the local motor race, the Grinalong Classic, the whole town is excited. But the race will go through Tangled Woods, where a giant wolf is rumoured to live. With everything she knows and loves at stake, Red must convince her mechanically savvy Gran to let her compete and overcome her own fears in the process.

The story is inventively brought to life using slot car racing, with cameras situated around the circuit magnifying the action live onscreen, putting the audience in the driving seat as they follow Red on her adventure. Featuring wonderful performances, a high-energy soundtrack and the puppetry that has made Terrapin famous locally, nationally and internationally, Red Racing Hood is not to be missed.
Catch it before it races away!
