Written by Debbie Metzler and directed by Jenni Merritt, the play makes some twists to such tales as Goldilocks, Red Riding Hood, the Three Pigs, and Hansel and Gretel while staying true to the original stories.
Goldilocks, forest-savvy from having to survive in the woods without a family, is on the run from the Three Bears but takes time to help Red Riding Hood. Along the way, they are saved by the Woodsman (who also happens to be Hansel and Gretel’s father) and from the zany Wolf (the same canine who plagues the Three Pigs). Then it’s encounters with the citizens of Mother Goose’s village, including Jack Horner, the Butcher, the Baker and the Candlestick Maker.

“There’s a lot of tongue in cheek humor that all ages will enjoy, especially younger children, “said Merritt. “It has been a great play for the actors to learn about comedic timing.”
Tickets ($11 each, with $5 student RUSH at door only) are available at www.sjctheatre.org or the box office (378-3210).
