Variety Plus Theater presents an original family musical production of the “Trial of Goldilocks,” written and directed by Bob Gribas with original music by Angela Rinaldi-Gribas.
All ages are welcome. Performances begin at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 19 and Sunday, Nov. 20 at the Meydenbauer Center, 11100 NE 6th St.
Quite possibly the biggest court case of all once upon a time, this production features a cast of 85 local area youth and adults. See what happens when a young lady faces a furry family of three. The charges are breaking and entering, theft of food and destruction of property. Serious charges for a little blonde girl. Serious losses for three local bears. Did she do it? Is she innocent of these accusations, or is she guilty of this crime?
With the gingerbread man prosecuting on behalf of the Three Bears and Puss In Boots on defense for Goldilocks, the trial begins. Many witnesses, critters, birds and forest rangers will take the stand, each with their own slant on the story. A dozen classic storybook characters will be the ones to decide the young girl’s fate. Comedy, tragedy, virtue, romance, fantasy, satire and zombies will abound at the “Trial of Goldilocks.”
General admission is $15. Tickets can be purchased online at www.varietyplus.org or at the door.
