Goldilocks visits PST!


Sat & Sun | March 3 & 4 | 1pm & 3pm

Magpie Puppets presents Goldilocks and the Three Bears - with a new ending!


About the show: We all know the story—Goldilocks stumbles upon an empty house, gobbles up porridge, breaks a chair, and takes a snooze. She’s awakened by three bears and runs home to her mother. In the Magpie Puppets version, her mother is horrified—not by the bears, but by her daughter’s poor manners! She sends Goldilocks back to apologize, bearing blueberry pancakes and a promise of chair repair. In a departure for Magpie Puppets, this is a tabletop(s) show, with puppeteer Maggie Whalen fully visible. Audience members do aerobics with Mama Bear and help the bears with household chores.

Recommended for ages 3 & up.
