Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Song and Story Time

Who doesn’t know the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears? But pay attention, this time there’s a twist: when Goldilocks enters the house of the three bears, she finds three drums. In her wild imagination, the three drums take on all kinds of interesting forms. She sees three bowls filled with porridge, three chairs of different sizes, and a table and chair that are just the right size to sit and gobble down sweet, hot porridge. The beloved fable is presented using three drums, three flutes and a guitar, two storytellers and whimsical songs. The musical instruments are the heroes of the story. They are the characters, the set, and the melody. As metaphorical objects they inspire the imagination, and can be watched as well as listened to. From different viewpoints their shapes and meanings change as well.
