Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?

You may have heard of this classic European fairy tale about a young girl and a Big Bad Wolf, but this story is unlike any other. Come experience Little Red Riding Hood at the Capitol Theatre this December and watch the story of a free-spirited little girl with the dream of becoming a pop star. In true British Pantomime style, the audience is encouraged to participate and the more you do, the better the play becomes.  So let the adventure begin – what could go wrong?

What’s a Pantomime you ask?

Pantomime – or panto for short - is best described as a traditional theatrical entertainment – with families and seniors in mind - which involves music and singing, topical jokes, and slapstick comedy, very loosely based on a fairy tale.  Fort Edmonton Park has been producing an original pantomime for 5 years now – almost always to sold out houses throughout the Christmas season.  This year it’s Little Red Riding Hood, which is set to Open on Thursday, December 13th.

Welcome to the Capitol Theatre at Fort Edmonton Park

This new building, which was completed in summer 2011, is a beautiful re-creation of Edmonton’s original Capitol Theatre, circa 1929.

 

This new theatre has an intimate seating capacity of 243 seats, with an additional
4 wheelchair locations.

 

The former Jasper Avenue facade that was in place following the original Capitol Theatre’s 1929 restoration has been captured in this new building, which incorporates modern construction methods but balances issues such as building code and the necessary technical infrastructure with historical authenticity.
