Little Red’s Hood is a fresh retelling of the classic “Little Red Riding Hood” tale updated with a modern sensibility that will appeal to kids. The production features a dozen, hand-made marionettes crafted by the expert puppeteers from the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre.

Like many of today’s children, Little Red is a smart, young city slicker who is too focused on her smartphone to notice her surroundings. Wulfric is a misunderstood wolf with a sweet tooth. When Little Red travels from New York City to the country to deliver some cupcakes to her Grandma, she encounters a colorful cast of characters as Wulfric the Wolf tries to head her off at the pass.

Little Red’s Hood is directed by Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre’s Artistic Director Bruce Cannon and written by Liam Hurley.

The CityParks PuppetMobile is the oldest continually operating company of its kind in the country, which presents free performances and puppet-making workshops in neighborhood parks, recreation centers and schools throughout New York City.

Know Before You Go

Bocce CourtsJuniper North

The Bocce Court at Juniper Valley Park is closed for construction. The existing double-bocce court will be repaired and resurfaced to improve play and comfort, and an entirely new bocce court will be constructed to increase playing capacity. New custom shade canopies will be installed at the ends of each court to add aesthetic interest and provide users with protection from the sun. Finally, a new sitting area will be added between the courts with new pavement, more comfortable benches, and trees to add greenspace and additional shade.
Anticipated Completion: Summer 2014
