The Once Upon a Tune musical series has become a staple educational field trip for Ontario elementary schools. Over 50,000 students across Ontario and Quebec enjoyed PigMania in spring of 2017.
We are thrilled to invite schools to join us for Red’s In The Hood in spring of 2018. Some shows are already sold out.
Red’s In the Hood
ON TOUR FEB-JUNE 2018
JK-3 • Approx 55 mins
Join little Red as she is sent with a basket of cookies to see her Granny (a motorcycle-riding go-go dancing hip-hopping senior). Red veers off the path and is chased by B.B. Wolf, a cookie-loving rap star! It’s a wacky musical twist on the traditional “Little Red Riding Hood” fairly tale. With fun sing-along songs, humor for all ages, fanciful costumes and sets, and a cast of 12, Red’s In The Hood will be one of the best theatre experiences your school will have.
This high-energy fun includes free audio resources and Resource Guides for EVERY class attending!
Some quotes from Red’s in the Hood 2018 tour:
“Each Education Arts Canada performance is extremely well-planned, engaging and an absolute thrill for our staff and students to experience. Our students start raving about the amazing performance once the theater lights turn back on…and they continue to rave about it on the bus ride home and weeks that follow. The staff are most professional, helpful and courteous (a HUGE thank you to Melody and Sylvia!). Our school will start our ‘Countdown App’ until the following year’s exciting performance. To maximize our experience, we love to plan weekly primary fun sing-alongs and readings of different versions of the fractured fairy tales with our students. The entire primary staff and students are always all gamed to dress up according to the story (e.g. this year we had a sea of red hoodies and red shirts…may attempt to tie-dye all 275 attendees for next year’s BeanStock – again!).”G.Westrick , Alvin Curling PS
“The story line was engaging and held the attention of my students while also giving them wiggle breaks throughout that kept even my busiest students entertained. The humor in the play kept the adults laughing, too! This was definitely a trip that was enjoyed by all! Fantastic performance!”M. Hull, Gregory A Hogan School
“It is a wonderful way to introduce the young students to the theater. It can be linked to Drama, Oral communication, and the Language curriculum. Our school has attended productions for the past 4-5 years.”S. Beauchesne, St Bernadette School
“Hands down, the greatest and most entertaining show I’ve seen in my teaching career! The students were fully engaged and are still singing the songs from the show! I, myself, laughed out loud numerous times! They kids absolutely loved it! It was excellent!”– E Lepelaars, Gregory A Hogan School
