The audience serves as the jury in this hilarious fairy tale courtroom play. Goldilocks is the defendant, on trial for breaking and entering. The plaintiffs are the three bears. As their lawyers, Henny Penny and Tom Thumb, go toe-to-toe hoping to prove their respective clients’ cases, others are called to testify as witnesses, including Hansel and Gretel, Jack and his cow, and Granny.  Even the Big Bad Wolf takes the stand.  It’s questionable who can be trusted to tell the truth. With multiple endings to cover each possible outcome, the audience decides Goldilocks’ ultimate fate.

All will be asked to read from the script and do some improvisation. Those auditioning should wear clothes and footwear that allow them to move freely, and bring a list of all conflicts they may have during the rehearsal period.

Rehearsals will begin March 2 on weeknights from 6 to 8 p.m. as well as some weekend afternoons, with extended times during the final week of rehearsal.

Eight performances will be given April 24 – May 3 on Fridays at 7 p.m., Saturdays at 1 and 4 p.m., as well as Sundays at 2 p.m.  In addition, a student matinee is scheduled during the morning of Tuesday, April 28.
