On March 28th, we premiered our new "Three Billy Goats Gruff" live educational puppet show.
CPC's Three Billy Goats Gruff was written with the intent to teach kids about "not being greedy" through the Troll, including counting and simple mathematics.
The Billy Goats Gruff show is a total of 30minutes with a pre show with out Q/A session after the show.
The show was written by Connor Asher and Caelan Cavanagh. Following the original fairy tale, we wanted to stick to the origins and add more into the story while not changing what people were familiar with. One of the challenging parts about writing puppet shows is accounting all the props, puppets, set pieces and things that need to be made since everything is hand-built. In addition to this, only two puppets could be on at any given time because of the number of hands backstage.
One of the new characters we introduced was "Birthworts: The wicked witch". In the beginning of the story, she casts a spell over the land that the Billy Goats live in, because they keep eating her flowers, transforming all the fresh beautiful green grasses to become baron and infertile, forcing the three billy goats gruff to move.
Later in the story, the witch visits Sir Kiedis and because of his greed, she transforms him into a troll.
