This is not just any pantomime – it’s a Jewish pantomime, featuring all the tradition of Panto with Jewish storytelling. Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Pig is traditional Pantomime magic at its best, with classic panto favourites including: sloshing buckets, getting lost in the woods, panto baddies and a catchy finale song sheet! You’ll laugh, dance, sing along, and discover a whole new world of wonder, magic and vegetarian wolves.


“Tiago Fonseca’s cartwheeling, tenacious Jewish Bubbah”

“Elsewhere the company all put in a fine shift, Tiago Fonseca’s Bubbah being a classy display of physical comedy in particular.”

Jonathan Baz


“There is of course a cross-dressing Dame-type Bubbah (grandma), played with stunning, tumbling panache by Tiago Fonseca (his backflips and somersaults in and out of the wings are particularly breathtaking).”
