This 15-minute musical play can be done as a complete play, skits, reader's theater, or you can just sing songs. No music or drama experience needed!

Specifically designed for kindergarten through third grade, this 15-minute version of the misadventures of Goldilocks is a perfect way to introduce musical theater to younger kids. The entire class sings the familiar story, interrupted by several enthusiastic students who repeatedly try to introduce characters from other favorite children's tales.

Goldilocks and the Three Bears is a great complement to your curriculum resources in elementary school language arts. And, like all of our plays, this show can be used to improve reading, vocabulary, reading comprehension, performance and music skills, class camaraderie and teamwork, and numerous social skills (read about it!) -- all while enabling students to be part of a truly fun and creative experience they will never forget!

"The music was great! The kids found it easy to to learn, and the tunes were catchy. Even though they practiced a lot, they never seemed to get bored with it. Parents, grandparents, and friends seem to enjoy the play very much."

---Sheri Bruins, Teacher (Preschool-2nd grade), Alexander School, Alexander, ND

"Goldilocks was fun, easy to learn, and allowed for students to explore their creativity through dance, costumes, and sets. We had lots of fun. The play was wonderfully appreciated and applauded by our whole school. It gave the students a great feeling of accomplishment."

---Gari James, Teacher (2nd grade), Monticello Elementary, Monticello, AR

"It was easy to put on inside the classroom. There were no costumes neccessary. he songs were easy for the kids to remember. There were parts for everyone. Having the music on CD was great! The kids felt really good about themselves when they performed for the other kindergarten classes and es[ecially when they performed for the 'big kids.' "

---Nancy Nave, Teacher, (Kindergarten), Riverton Elementary, Riverton, IL

"I liked how it was easily incorporated into whole group reading, highly motivating, familiar story gives students prior experience/knowledge, and the short length of the play makes it 'do-able.' Musically talented students had the opportunity to shine. Students loved the songs---they would sing them at recess and even months after the play."

---Cindy Newton, Teacher (1st grade), Eastview Elementary, Connersville, IN

"This was a clever, original and challenging play, and I was definitly going to do it! I loved the interjection of Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella and the three pigs and wolf. The kids thought that was hugely funny. I like to do something like this because it gives the kids a huge dose of self-confidence and pride. Some of our quitest kids become stars on performance night. Also, we talk a lot about music and music terms while we are performing, and about the etiquitte of performing in front of an audience."

---Betty Howard, Teacher, (Preschoolers, ages 3-5), First United Mesthodist Preschool and Kindergarten, Hopkinsville, KY

"My students loved it -- they wanted to perform over and over. I really appreciate the way your shows reinforce ideas and concepts that we are studying. We do thematic based units at my school, and so many of the topics are done in your play. There is nothing disappointing about about any of your work in my opinion. Just keep doing more!"

---Ann Burk, Teacher, (1st grade), Montana City School, Montana City, MT

"Goldilocks was perfect for my very energetic group, and we had a marvelous performance."

---Kathleen Bronco, Teacher, (2nd grade), Lakeside Farms, Lakeside,CA

mostly sing all together, with occasional small groups or solo. Narration between songs
can be divided among many different students.

Script

This is the first one-third of the script:

Song 1 - Listen now!

THE CLASS marches in, singing :
Here we are
We all have style
Marching in single file
We just want to make you smile!
Hold on to your socks
Hold on to your socks
Here comes
Here comes Goldilocks.

Here we are
So let's have fun
Marching in one by one
Now our show has just begun!
Hold on to your socks
Hold on to your socks
Here comes
Here comes Goldilocks.

Daddy Bear
Mommy Bear
Baby Bear too
We are here today
To sing and play for you.

Here we are
We all have style
Marching in single file
We just want to make you smile!
Hold on to your socks
Hold on to your socks
Here comes
Here comes Goldilocks.
(softer)
Here comes
Here comes Goldilocks
(louder)
Here comes
Here comes Goldilocks.

STUDENT (spoken): Once upon a time three bears lived in a cottage in the woods.

STUDENT: Great big Daddy Bear, middle-sized Mommy Bear, and tiny little
Baby Bear.

STUDENT: One morning Mommy Bear made a huge pot of porridge.

STUDENT: She poured it into three bowls for breakfast. But it was too hot to eat.

STUDENT: So great big Daddy Bear said...

STUDENT: (in best big bear voice): Let's go for a walk in the woods until it cools down.

STUDENT: The bears hadn't gone far when who should arrive at the house but a girl
called Goldilocks.

Song 2 - Listen now!

CLASS :
Goldilocks walking through the forest
Goldilocks quiet as a mouse
Goldilocks walking through the forest
Finds a little house.

(entire CLASS pretends to knock on a door)

Knock knock knock, anybody home here?
Knock knock knock, I think I'm off track
Knock knock knock, anybody home here?
I could use a snack.

She tries the door
The door is unlocked
Creak, creak
She pushes at the door
Creak, creak
She goes in to explore.

Goldilocks went into the cottage
Goldilocks took a look around
Goldilocks walked into the kitchen
This is what she found.

(At the end of this song, a few students burst out into their own song. THEY mistakenly
think that this is the story of Little Red Riding Hood. Similar "mistakes" happen two
other times in the musical---it can be the same group of students each time or a different
group. Kindergarten students probably won't get the joke at first, but they will have a
great time once it is explained to them.)

Song 3

A FEW STUDENTS :
This is the part where it gets good
Doo-dah, doo-dah
Here comes Little Red Riding Hood
Granny, what big eyes!

OTHER STUDENTS (calling out, not in unison): No, no! Uh-uh!

STUDENT (spoken): This is the part where Goldilocks finds the three bowls of
porridge. And she's hungry!

SAME FEW STUDENTS: Oh yeah.

Song 4 - Listen now!

CLASS :
She looked around
And right there
One big bowl
For big Daddy Bear
Big Daddy Bear.

She took a big spoonful
Took a great big sip
"It's too hot!" she cried out
"Man that hurts my lip."

She looked around
And right there
One nice bowl
For nice Mommy Bear
Nice Mommy Bear.

She took a nice spoonful
And turned up her nose
"It's too cold!" she cried out
"My tonsils just froze."
(THE KIDS dance)

She looked around
And right there
One small bowl
For small Baby Bear
Small Baby Bear.

She still was so hungry
She picked up the cup
"This is good!" she cried out
And slurped it all up.

She slurped it up
She slurped it up
She...slurped it up.

Song 5

CLASS :
She looked around
And right there
One big bowl
For big Daddy Bear
Big Daddy Bear.

She took a big spoonful
Took a great big sip
"It's too hot!" she cried out
"Man that hurts my lip."

She looked around
And right there
One nice bowl
For nice Mommy Bear
Nice Mommy Bear.

She took a nice spoonful
And turned up her nose
"It's too cold!" she cried out
"My tonsils just froze."
(THE KIDS dance)

She looked around
And right there
One small bowl
For small Baby Bear
Small Baby Bear.

She still was so hungry
She picked up the cup
"This is good!" she cried out
And slurped it all up.

She slurped it up
She slurped it up
She...slurped it up.

Song 6

A FEW KIDS :
Now it gets fun
Now it gets good
Three Little Pigs, one Bad Wolf
He huffs and puffs and blows them all down...

OTHER KIDS (calling out, not in unison): No no! Uh-uh!

STUDENT: This is the part where Goldilocks finds three chairs. And she's
getting tired!

SAME FEW KIDS: Oh yeah.

Song 7 - Listen now!

CLASS (NOTE: For this song, the CLASS divides in half):

The Daddy Bear chair
Give it a try
The Daddy Bear chair
But it's too high.
The Daddy Bear chair
It just won't do
Oh Goldilocks
That's no chair for you.

The Mommy Bear chair
Now here we go
The Mommy Bear chair
But it's too low.
The Mommy Bear chair
It just won't do
Oh Goldilocks
That's no chair for you.

(This concludes the first one-third of the script.)
