AN ORIGINAL THEATRICAL ARTS PRODUCTION.
One of our most popular original musicals featuring Goldilocks in three tales of three. The story seamlessly weaves through “The Three Little Pigs”, “The Three Bears, “ and “The Three Billy Goats Gruff.” Each villain is faced with the decision to make a good choice or a bad choice. The upbeat music and colorful costumes makes this a must see. It explores themes of responsibility, bullying, determination, consequences of actions and friendship.

This show fits in nicely with lessons of TEAMWORK, COMMUNITY, RELATIONSHIPS, and THE LANGUAGE OF LESSONS.
