Revolting Rhymes

These photos were taken at South Hill Park Arts Centre and the sets shown are part of the Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes workshop. The website explains:

Revolting Rhymes: The Making

Following a week of costume making, set painting and a Drama production, South Hill Park presents an exhibition of the making of Revolting Rhymes. A chance to see the costumes, set, and interviews with the cast and crew. Revolting Rhymes is a FREE workshop week for adults with learning disabilities sponsored by Bracknell Forest Council in association with South Hill Park.

Although the sets look Little Red Riding Hoody, here's another poem by Roald Dahl

'No animal is half as vile
As Crocky-Wock, the crocodile.
On Saturdays he likes to crunch
Six juicy children for his lunch
And he especially enjoys
Just three of each, three girls, three boys.
He smears the boys (to make them hot)
With mustard from the mustard pot.
But mustard doesn't go with girls,
It tastes all wrong with plaits and curls.
With them, what goes extremely well
Is butterscotch and caramel.
It's such a super marvelous treat
When boys are hot and girls are sweet.
At least that's Crocky's point of view
He ought to know. He's had a few.
That's all for now. It's time for bed.
Lie down and rest your sleepy head.
Ssh. Listen. What is that I hear,
Galumphing softly up the stair?

Go lock the door and fetch my gun!
Go on child, hurry! Quickly run!
No stop! Stand back! He's coming in!
Oh, look, that greasy greenish skin!
The shining teeth, the greedy smile!
It's Crocky-Wock, the Crocodile!' 

As well as running workshops, there is a theatre, cinema, cafe, lovely grounds - have
