Quick Center for the Arts presents a new twist on the classic fairy tale. "Red Riding Hood," a Missoula Children's Theatre (MCT) production, will be presented Fridays, July 26, Aug. 2 and Aug. 16 at 7:30 p.m.

This adaptation by MCT founder James Caron features a cast of familiar childhood characters, from the innocent Red Riding Hood to the Boy Who Cried Wolf to the Three Little Pigs. Also featured are: the Little Loveable Wolf, the Woodsman, the Locksmith, the Wolfgang, the Forest Shadows and the rascally Raccoons.

Most of the characters are played by area young people in grades 1-12 who are enrolled in the Quick Center's Children's Summer Theatre Camp.

The camp, now in its 13th season, offers six weekly sessions, each culminating in a Friday evening production. Throughout the week, the young people rehearse their roles with directors from MCT, the country's preeminent professional children's theatre company. In addition, they take workshops in theater movement, theater improvisation, arts & crafts and more. The workshops are led by professionals who are brought in as part of the Quick Center children's summer program.

Tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for children. Discounted group rates and subscriptions are available. For tickets, call (203) 254-4010 or toll free 1-877-ARTS-396 or visit the website, www.quickcenter.com.
