Opening tomorrow is Elden Street Players’ Theatre for Young Audiences “Goldilocks and the Three Bears.”
This production isn’t the run of the mill children’s story, but a retelling of the fairy tale, with a twist. Goldilocks, whose hair is actually brown, is made fun of by the other kids at The Enchanted Forest Kiddie Camp. After much teasing, she explains to Ranger Roger that her mother named her Goldie (her last name is Locks) as an infant because she was born blond.
When Goldie runs away to avoid the teasing of the other children it’s up to Ranger Roger to find her. She travels to Ranger Roger’s cottage on the outskirts of the camp. When the Bear Family arrives to take over the cottage it’s up to Goldie and Ranger Roger to escape.
Goldilocks and the Three Bears, written by Tom McCabe, is directed by Barbara Carpenter and produced with special arrangements with Baker’s Plays. Goldilocks opens Saturday, Feb. 5 at 11 a.m. Tickets are $7 for general admission. Performances are held at the Industrial Strength Theatre, 269 Sunset Park Dr.
