Once upon a time lived a very clever girl who was a big part of the Neighbourhood Watch program, with a goal to 'Keep Australia Beautiful'.
Every story has a trouble-maker and this one has 'Wolfy' - the Big Bad Wolf! He's not really big and bad...but he does leave rubbish everywhere - and that makes him a massive "litterbug". Wolfy just found out that Granny has a chocolate cake cooking in the oven, so he's heading over there right now to get his paws on that cake. Will Little Red get there first and save the day, or the cake?
There is a meet and greet after the 50-minute performance for children to meet Little Red and the Big Bad Wolf.
Suitable for children aged three to 11 and their families.
