GOLDILOCKS AND THE DOWNHOME BEARS – A Foot Stompin’ Musical
By Karen Newman and Neal Newman (world premiere; children’s touring production)
Written in the pop-country style of such stars as Taylor Swift and Montgomery Gentry, GOLDIE retells the story of GOLDILOCKS AND THE THREE BEARS with a decided country twist. Sheriff “Deputy Dan” introduces “The Holler”, a place that is very difficult to find and where the people and the animals live together in peace. On the eve of her 15th birthday, Goldie is fed up with the stifling rules and life of her home and runs away to the woods. There she meets the Bear Family who has a totally different approach to living. They also have Baby Bear, a 13 year old and the worst pre-teen imaginable. Goldie lives with the bears awhile where she learns that there are many approaches to living, and develops a friendship with Baby Bear that allows them both to grow. Eventually, Goldie returns to her family and promises to obey the rules, but as the final song tells, “NOT UNTIL WE DANCE.” The show is enjoyable for all ages, but should have particular appeal to pre-teens. NOTE: the creators have indicated that all performers will be hired for a professional recording of the score that will receive an international release.
Deputy Dan: Law enforcement official of “The Holler”. Narrates the play and eventually solves all problems. A good ol’ boy.
Goldie: Rebellious 15 year old who is a maniacal fan of Taylor Swift. Good country singer. Guitar playing a plus but not necessary.
Maw and Paw/Mamma and Papa Bear: (1) Goldie’s parents who are totally clueless when it comes to handling teenagers; they suffer greatly; (2) Bear parents who have learned to love life in spite of its difficulties.
Baby Bear: 13 year old with rebellion complex. Sings like Janis Joplin.
Betsy Blue Bird: A singing puppet. Sings legit lullabies.
The TeenAgers: Spirited chorus of delightful teens.
