Heretaunga Players’ first production for 2015 is called “Goldilocks and the Three Pigs”, Larry Damico and is produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service Inc.,Englewood, Colorado.
The play is directed by Teena Cleary who also directed Wild Goose Chase and Post Horn Gallop.
Goldilocks and the three… PIGS?!!! The action in this playful romp begins with Goldilocks dashing into the house of the three Chop brothers. Yes, these are the same three pigs that lost two of their houses to the Wolf, and they’re still emotionally scarred from the incident! With the help of their friendly neighbours, the Squeal sisters, they help Goldilocks hide from the witch who’s chasing her. But when the witch puts a spell on Goldi, forcing her to stay in the house, the pig brothers leave on a mission to find a potion that can act as a spell remover. Toss into this hilarious fractured fairy tale the Big Bad Wolf, his French weasel friend Oui Oui, two very different witches (who won’t leave you asking “Which witch?”), and one very confused — and somewhat snooty — storyteller and watch the mayhem that ensues! Mix in a classic chase scene and a little bit of a moral and the end concoction is a delightful take on a couple of old storybook standbys full of energy and enough humor and adventure for children of all ages!
The season ran 14 – 18 April 2015.
