Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Gina Wilhelm Actress - Goldilocks and the Three Bears

It's summertime, and that means it's time for Thistle Theatre's summer tour.  This summer we present "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" at various locations throughout the Seattle area.

All voices and songs are performed live by me and fellow puppeteers Brian Stabile and Lisa A. Haslbauer. We use Japanese Bunraku-style puppets, rod puppets, and song to tell this a take on the traditional tale.

The script and songs were written by Jean Enticknap and Sue Ennus. Jean also directed this lively production.

In our version of the show, the bears travel from their home in Yellowstone Park to Hollywood in their trailer. Meanwhile, Goldilocks is a California girl with a pet duck and a BIG imagination.

This show is recommended for ages 3 and up.

I play Mama Bear. Reviews of the show when we performed in theaters said, "Skilled puppetry is the heart of this show and the most enjoyable aspect."

All library shows this summer are free. Our Emerald Downs show is free with admission to the track. Come see this fun puppet show before time runs out!
