StageOne’s Petite Rouge

Today we went to StageOne Family Theater’s production of Petite Rouge at the Kentucky Center. It was very interesting. It’s like Little Red Riding Hood except it’s a Cajun version. This was an amazing play. Our favorite characters were Claude the Alligator because he was a gourmet cook and Te-Jean because of his personality of not getting into trouble. The setting was in the bayou near New Orleans. The costumes were all very cool and the gators costumes were shiny. The makeup really helped us see which character was which.

Another cool thing about the play was the set. It was really great. The background kept changing colors from orange to purple to light blue. We thought that that made it look more eerie. There was a tree that was very easy to climb on. At the top it was shaped to be very easy to sit in. There was a little cottage that had many uses. It was Petite Rouge’s home and her grandma’s house and an exit for the stage. There were blue ramps that were good for changing the setting and acted as a bed for the grandma. There was a revolve that Te Jean (pronounced tae zan) used kind of like a boat.

In the show program there are two cool recipes that we are going to try, stay tuned. This is the first time that we have been to a StageOne play since we have been blogging. In fact, somebody that works at StageOne gave us the idea of starting our blog! (Thanks Ms. Talleri) This was a very great play and we think that you should go see Petite Rouge and the rest of their plays which are The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, And in This Corner… Cassius Clay, and Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse.
