Characters: 10 principals, dancers, chorus.
The well known fairy tale has been expanded into a more elaborate adventure story. Goldilocks is the daughter of a vibrant and often hilariously outrageous circus owner. But the circus is doing badly; they are plagued by a rival troupe run by villainous Benjamin Black. They need a really original animal act. A good fairy disguised as a bareback rider saves the day when Goldilocks encounters the three Bears and they become circus stars. Black plans to seize the Bears and many adventures ensue. The audience is encouraged to help as the story rolls along to a happy ending.
