AUDITION NOTICE: 10-18 year old girls.


The House That Dan Built Presents: Little Red Riding Hood – Not suitable for Children.


Directed by Danielle O’Keefe

Produced by Natalie Richards

Choreographed by Belinda Scanlan

AV Art by Laura Turner


Empowering girls and young women to stand tall and stare down the wolves in their worlds, Little Red Riding Hood – Not suitable for Children is an operatic reworking of the original Grimms fairy tale, woven with the contemporary stories of women walking alone at night. This production is an opportunity for 12 girls to work with and devise their own narratives with professional actors and singers. Over 8 Sundays and two intensive weekends we will unpick the stories we have been told and find a story we want to tell. During our workshop sessions we will devise an hour long vocal work that will melodically tell our story and accompany video projection.


CHARACTERS: We are looking for a chorus of little red riding hoods. Girls between 10 and 18 who can sing and hold harmonies. The girls will have strong performance ability, and the capability of holding the stage on their own.
