The City Parks Foundation has announced the return of the beloved CityParks PuppetMobile with puppet production of Little Red’s Hood from May through October.

This event will travel through the five boroughs of New York City telling the infamous story of the tale “Little Red Riding Hood” with some modern impressions thrown in.

“The PuppetMobile is always a great source of joy for children and adults in parks across New York City, and this summer will be no different,” said Bruce Cannon, Artistic Director of Swedish Cottage Marionette Theatre. “Little Red’s Hood was such a hit that there was no question of bringing it back this year with a full season of performances scheduled from May to October. With some performances translated into Mandarin and Spanish, we are able to expand our audience and introduce many more families to our wonderful production.

Support for the PuppetMobile comes from the Connelly Foundation in memory of Judith Connelly Delouvrier, the Weininger Foundation and the Prescott Fund for Children & Youth, in partnership with NYC Parks.

A complete list of dates, shows and times from May to August is available at cityparksfoundation.org/puppetmobile.
