Roald Dahl's Goldilocks and the Three Bears is an exciting addition to A&C Black's Roald Dahl series of musicals for schools. It joins the famously infamous Snow-White and the Seven Dwarfs and the very smelly but loveable Jack and the Beanstalk in a glittering line up of wickedly funny productions which children and audiences just love.
On trial for her crimes, Goldilocks looks like the sweet little innocent who'd give us her last sweetie. Could she really be the brazen crook who stole the porridge from under the snouts of the self-respecting, harmless Bears? The Jury will decide (but who will have the last laugh?). Let the trial commence!
As with every one of these great Roald Dahl musicals, Goldilocks is based on an orchestral commission by the Roald Dahl Foundation. The concert work, from which the schools' musical is derived is by Kurt Schwertsik, and schools can use the extracts provided from the orchestral work to enhance their performances.
Schools will be able to buy a performance licence online at the brand new A&C Black musicals website (live from March 05), which also has a forum, a Hall of Fame, regular news, updates and free extras to download. Another winner!
