Holiday fun with Goldilocks

Desle McConney as Goldilocks and Elton John Duffy as Grandpa in a scene from last year's Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

The Lilliput Children’s Theatre Company will be performing one of their most popular shows, Goldilocks and the Three Bears from Monday December 11 until Saturday December 16 at the Nassau Theatre at Groote Schuur High School, in Palmyra Road, Newlands, at 10.30am.

The children’s classic follows the adventure of Goldilocks in the forest before her birthday.

Goldilocks gets lost in the woods and stumbles across a house belonging to the three bears. With nobody home, Goldilocks goes inside and makes herself at home. The three bears come home to find their visitor fast asleep with hilarious consequences.

Goldilocks and the Three Bears is adapted and directed by Elton John Duffy, who has been producing children’s theatre and delighting audiences for the past 23 years.

This show stars Desle McConney from Athlone as Baby Bear, Elton John Duffy from Edgemead as Grandpa, Amy Blanchard from Rondebosch as Mama Bear, Almar Muller from Gardens as Papa Bear and Mar-li van der Merwe from Durbanville as Goldilocks.
