Terrapin Puppet Theatre to perform puppet show "Red Racing Hood"

      Terrapin Puppet Theatre from Australia will perform the puppet theatre production "Red Racing Hood" in December. This theatre performance is suitable for children aged 5 and above.
      "Red Racing Hood" is reimagined from the famous fairy tale "Little Red Riding Hood". It is inventively brought to life using slot car racing, with cameras situated around the circuit magnifying the action live on screen, putting the audience in the driving seat as they follow Red on her adventure.
     With everything she knows and loves at stake in the small town of Grinalong, Red must convince her Grandma to help her win a car race and overcome her own fears with the aim of staying in the town.
     Terrapin Puppet Theatre has been established in Tasmania for over 36 years. The company, touring nationally and internationally, makes contemporary puppetry for young people and their families. Telling sophisticated stories of humour and pathos, the company embraces new technologies whilst retaining the intrinsic illusions of the age-old craft of puppetry. In its productions, the company aims to inspire families to express their collective imagination through inventive play with the objects and devices that surround them.
      Details of the performances are as follows:
December 7 and 8 (Friday and Saturday), 7.30pm
December 8 and 9 (Saturday and Sunday), 3pm
Cultural Activities Hall, Tsuen Wan Town Hall
Tickets: $200
