The City of Lawton and the Lawton Arts & Humanities Council is pleased to present two performances
Friday, February 6, 2015
10:00am* & 6:30pm**
McMahon Memorial Auditorium
801 NW Ferris Ave.
This production will delight the entire family!
"The Real Story of Little Red Riding Hood" is based on the immortal yarn of Little Red Riding Hood and a Hungry Wolf. The audience will hear and see the story from the Wolf's point of view.
In this hilarious musical,the friendly and sympathetic Wolf is understandably upset. He has been maligned for generations because of this well-known children's story and he is out to set the record straight. With forest friends, a Rabbit, a Butterfly, a Deer and a Skunk, the Wolf reveals Red Riding Hood's real nature.....rarely shown to the outside world. Toe tapping tunes, chase scenes and audience participation make this a side-splitting, cuddly tale that will show there are always two sides to every story.

Since 1975, the Student Performance Project works to bring live theatre to school age students.
Each year, two performances are arranged for one day at McMahon Memorial Auditorium. Performance selections are targeted towards elementary and junior-high school aged students. In this way, the project works to create future theatre audiences by exposing students to live theater at a young age. For many students, this is their first opportunity to experience professional theatre in a performing arts center.
Most performances are based on historic events or works of literature that the target audiences are familiar with.
Schools are asked to reserve their spots by sending in their registration form and admission fee prior to the performance day. All seats are assigned to maximize seating capacity.
Sponsors and Community Partners for this project are the National Endowment for the Arts, Oklahoma Arts Council, City of Lawton, Lawton Arts and Humanities Council, McMahon Auditorium Authority, and the Lawton Public Schools.
Recent shows have been "Peter Pan", "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe", "Just So Stories", "Junie B. Jones", and "Curious George" which were productions by Theatreworks USA.
