Once Upon a Crime: The Trial of Goldilocks

in the Black Box Theater
April 24th - May 3rd, 2015

by Flip Kobler and Cindy Marcus

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.

Tami Provencher directs a cast of talented area students in grades 7 – 9. She most recently staged The Little Luncheonette of Terror for The Phipps.
