GOLDIE!

Goldie Pic

by Christopher S. Connelly

Kind of a Chicago for children, GOLDIE! (Or; A Juvenile Delinquent in Toyland?) is a musical vaudeville for children. It celebrates flag-waving patriotism, corporal punishment and the judicial system within the world of Mother Goose and everyone's favorite Fairy Tale and Nursey Rhyme characters. Who needs the Simpson case or the Oklahoma City bombing to bring about edge-of-your-seat excitement when the classics of our childhood did it first and did it better!

Goldie! tells the story of Goldie Locks (née Shoemaker) who finds herself in the dreaded Toyland Penitentiary charged with Breaking and Entering, Bed-Sleeping and Petty Porridge Theft. She claims to be misunderstood, a victim of the Queen of Heart's merciless justice system. With the help of her attorney (Snow White), Goldie must convince the Queen and the Three Bears that she is not a menace to society. Along the way Goldie learns a few lessons in responsibility and the Queen learns to be more even-handed when bestowing parental disipline. Oh yes, and Snow White breaks free of her ingenue image.

Most important of all, the story allows nine of the most beloved characters in children's literature to sing and dance their way through 15 of the most beloved vaudeville, operetta and musical comedy numbers of a century ago (all with new lyrics hysterically appropriate to the tale.)
