Hayling Island Amateur Dramatic Society's production of 'Red Riding Hood' at the Station Theatre is one for the family; a very enjoyable two hours of humorous gags, popular songs and "delicious ice cream".
From the very beginning it quickly engages with family members of all ages via slapstick humour for the kids and political quips for the adults. Throughout the journey there are plenty of moments for, what was a packed auditorium, to interact and actively take part in the creative story of Red Riding Hood.
Notable are the performances of Izzy Hudson as Ivor and Naomi Huggins as Red Riding Hood, their vocal capabilities very much captivating the audience.
With running gags from Pete Hewitt and Craig McFarling as Fernandos and The Wolf, the show maintained a very enjoyable light-hearted theme which any pantomime sets out to do. The hilarity and enthusiasm of every single member of the cast was extremely engaging.
Special mention must go to the director Rob Finn whose passion and commitment are very much alive in this production.
Red Riding Hood plays at the Hayling Island Station Theatre until Saturday. 7:30pm nightly and 2:30pm matinée on Saturday. Booking advised.
