Goldilocks is on trial, and the audience decides if it was breaking-and-entering or an innocent mistake. This musical romp illustrates that there are two sides to every story, with the same circumstances seen from very different points of view. Told with rod puppets and giant hand puppets, this production keeps the audience guessing while including all the favorite elements of the classic children's fairytale.

 

Age recommendation: 3 1/2 years old - 9 years old; Running time: 40 minutes.
