Character descriptions: (taken directly from the script)
Wolf: Wolf’s basic personality is of a likeable character who enjoys life and the beauty around him. He’s a bit clumsy, almost like a buffoon. He is sensitive and easily hurt. When he portrays the “Bad Wolf”, he assumes a deep, rather husky voice. He also needs to be able sound a bit like a young girl, as well as an old woman.
Grandma: A sweet little old lady, who enjoys playing tricks on her granddaughter. She’s not too assertive, and gives up rather easily.
Red’s Mother: A loving, dutiful mother, who dotes on her daughter and thinks her daughter can do no wrong. Loving to a fault!
Deer: Kind and wise. A good friend of the Wolf’s.
Rabbit: Active and rather feisty. He moves quickly and spontaneously.
Skunk: Rather timid and shy, and easily intimidated.
Butterfly: Sensuous, beautiful, with a bit of a Southern drawl.
Woodcutter: Burly, strong, hard worker, no nonsense sort of man.
Stage Manager: Easily frustrated; barks rather than talks.
