Over the river and through the woods to Grandmother’s house she goes. Red Riding Hood, not so little anymore, and her pre-teen pals try to stay on the straight and narrow in the latest adventure from the Missoula Children's Theatre, Red Riding Hood. The Big Bad Wolf, who is not so bad after all, and a friendly neighborhood Forest Ranger urge our heroes to stay true to the path, for in the Shadows lurk diversions and a sinister surprise or two. A pack of woefully nasty young wolves and a handsome Woodsman, too good to be true, are a must for our story. And we can’t have a wolf tale without Three Little Pigs and even a Boy Who Cries…you guessed it. With help from her family and a loyal young Locksmith (he carries the key), Red finds her Grandma and a whole lot more. Now if only she could retrieve her picnic basket from those rascally Raccoons. Life is no picnic when you stray from the trail!

On stage or behind the scenes, your children are stars! Maybe this is their first show, or they've been in 12 MCT shows. Either way, their Missoula Children’s Theatre experience will always shine bright. We invite you to honor that experience with a “star” in the MCT Galaxy, located in MCT headquarters in Missoula! How many stars are in the galaxy? When you participate, the sky's the limit! You may even want one of your own for being your child’s life-long stage manager. To see a sample of the MCT Galaxy and learn more about this exciting, new way to celebrate your star, visit MCTinc.org/mct-galaxy.
