Take a toe-tapping trip to the bayou in this family-friendly, Zydeco-driven musical soaked in N'awlins hot sauce! Based on the classic fairy tale and adapted from the book by Mike Artell and Jim Harris, a red-hooded duckling named Petite Rouge and her sidekick cat lead the Big Bad Gator on a wild "duck" chase through New Orleans and Mardi Gras. Will they make it to Grandmere's house with a basket full of Cajun goodies?
