(Correction: Originally, it was said that the event was open to the public. It is not. This event is free for parents of students in the play.)

Skyline Elementary School at 1402 E Sunrise Ave will present a play, "Little Red and the Riding Hoods," on Friday, April 12, at 9 AM.

Be advised: This is not the typical Little Red Riding Hood story you were told as a child.

Kathryn Goss, who directs the production, describes it as "a play within a play." It begins with a pretentious and stuffy narrator about to tell the traditional story of Little Red Riding Hood. The stagehands, tired of the same-old story, interrupt the narrator and decide to give their own version.

"It's more silly," says Katherine Yuen, a fourth-grade cast member. "The stagehand wants to change the story all up, but the narrator wants it to be the classic version. And the stagehand said in the play, 'Little Red was a part of the rip-roaring motorcycle gang!'"

Katherine just returned from one of her final play practices and said she was "super excited" for the play.

Thirty-four kids from third through fifth grades are involved in the production, including five working as crew. Most of the paintings were done by the performers and crew themselves.

Keep an eye out for Katherine in the motorcycle gang. She'll be one of the hoods, "the mischievous one," she said.
