Get ready for some school holiday fun with the next big thing to hit the Eastbank Centre, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, a modern day version of one of the most loved children’s stories of all time.
Goldilocks and the Three Bears is being brought to Shepparton by the same company who have in the past presented fun children’s shows such as Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood and Sleeping Beauty.
This production, while respecting tradition and keeping true to the story, contains many different aspects to present the show in a more modern light. The appearance of Elvis and Barbie in the three bears’ house and lots of dancing to ABBA tunes are just some of the re-writes sure to delight audiences.
Directed by the critically acclaimed Hugh Halliday, this new production brings together an all star cast, featuring the talents of seasoned performers Michelle Fitzmaurice, Jason Wasley, Brian Hannan and Amy Larson.
The show is written by award-winning comedy writer, David Kaffey, and features orchestrations by Channel 7’s David Cameron. The show is certain to have everyone singing along to some well known hit songs.
Manager of Performing Arts and Conventions Rob Robson said the children’s program at Riverlinks had been very successful in the past, with shows that interest both children and adults.
“School holiday shows are always great fun. As well as the performance, we have balloon artists and roving performers to entertain the kids, making it a big day out for all the family,” Mr Robson said.
Goldilocks and the Three Bears will be performed on Tuesday 13th April at
10.30 am and 1.00 pm at Eastbank. Bookings can be made through the Riverlinks Box Office, Eastbank, 70 Welsford Street, Shepparton or by phoning 5832 9511.
