UA's educational theatre company (etc...)
presents Red Ridin' in the Hood & Dos Cuentos,

co-directed by Diego Lopez, Professor Laura McCammon & Kelsey Redmond

Based on the stories by Patricia Santos Marcantonio, the etc... production of Red Ridin' in the Hood & Dos Cuentos was adapted and directed by UA Theatre Education Seniors Diego Lopez and Kelsey Redmond along with Laura A. McCammon, Theatre Education Faculty.

In her collection Red Ridin' in the Hood and Dos Cuentos, Santos Marcantonio has taken traditional fairy tales and translated them to the Southwestern United States and Mexico. The etc... production will feature three bilingual stories: The Piper of Harmon'a (instead of rats, the town is overrun by lizards), Blanca Nieves y los Siete Vaqueritos (the Snow White story set in old Mexico and told by puppets), and Red Ridin' in the Hood (set in a modern day barrio where Roja is not at all fooled by Lobo Ch‡vez and his low-rider).

etc... (Educational Theatre Company) was created in 1995 to give theatre education students the opportunity to produce plays and educational programs for young audiences. The company is committed to producing quality scripts and developing new plays.
