Once I finished the Witch from Into the Woods I thought how fun it would be to do a whole series of them. So here’s the second in the series, Little Red Riding Hood. She doesn’t have any other name in the musical, she’s only ever known as Little Red Riding Hood, (so long to type out…). During the first act she’s very naive and innocent, until she’s eaten by the wolf. Once she’s freed she decides that just because she has a ‘cloak and hood’ she will not be protected, she still has to be on her guard. This is her main development for Act One. In the second act, she’s a bit more morbid, she has a knife and dares Jack to bring back a harp that ‘makes beautiful sounds without having to touch it.’ This then brings about the Giant coming down into their world and creates the issues of Act Two. By the end she doesn’t have a Grandma or Mother left and has to learn to live on her own, well with the other main characters.

That was a huge chunk of exposition, but mainly Little Red has basic stage makeup, with nothing really standing out except for the fact that she’s young. I had to add something to it, so I gave her some red liner.

Have you ever seen Into the Woods? Dear lord I hope you have had the pleasure of watching it; either in person or on DVD. I have always watched the DVD (or VHS way back in the day) with Bernadette Peters as the Witch. Now with no disrespect to any other actresses out there, Bernadette originated that role and really ingrained it into my mind. And actually when Steven Sondheim wrote the play the witch’s role was much smaller. Once Bernadette was signed on the role became what it is today. This look is inspired more by the second act’s Witch. I don’t want to spoil much, but the colors are pulled from her dress and from what promotional images I could find I think this is fairly and exact replica. Enjoy!
