A born storyteller, Claudia weaves songs into these well known tales that give the stories a fresh new slant, while teaching some important life lessons. With her expressive delivery and clever lyrics, (and a bit of double entendre for the adults in the audience), she offers entertainment for elementary school aged children that has an educational edge. For venues with media screens, the shows can be accompanied by visuals. (Watch video slideshow below for "Little Red Riding Hood" visuals.)

In "Little Red Riding Hood", Claudia's debut musical, there are numerous lessons. The wolf's self-pity lament "I'm So Blue" points out his failure to be accountable for his choices. Red Riding Hood's discovery of the wolf posing as her grandmother in "You Just Don't Seem To Be Yourself Tonight", shows her ability to pay attention to her own gut feelings when danger threatens, and flee. "Cranky" alerts children to be conscious of how their emotions influence their decisions, and also stresses the importance of a sincere apology when a wrong has been committed.
