Red loves bedtime stories with Grandma. As well as reading them from a book, they make up their own too. But one evening, as they settle down with ‘Once upon a time…’, they are interrupted by their wily neighbour, Mr Wolfe, and a race begins to save their treehouse from a faulty genie and a wicked stepmother with a magic mirror (and a penchant for shopping) – before midnight!

Join Really Big Pants Theatre Company for a fast, fun twist on traditional tales. Help with a very special spell, ride on a flying carpet and battle some bad manners!

Really Big Pants is a local theatre company specifically for primary-aged children. They wrote their storytelling show, SUDDENLY...!, to celebrate and encourage literacy, using recognisable elements of traditional tales (and some really big pants) to inspire and entertain, and they have performed it to thousands of children in schools, libraries, bookshops, art centres, and at literary festivals. They are thrilled to be bringing the show to the Playground Theatre.

There is an accompanying illustrated chapter book adaptation of the show, featuring two extra adventures for Grandma and Red, and an audiobook version, which will both be available to buy at a discounted rate.
