The Three Billy Goats Gruff {With Giveaway!}

It's another excellent production by the Singapore Repertory Theatre (SRT) - The Three Billy Goats Gruff! An all time favourite classic tale weaved into a kids' musical!

This production has been creatively spun off from its original tale. The goats and troll remain, but with a refreshing taste that you'll love. 

The Three Billy Goats, affectionately known as "Baby" "Middle" and "Big" were put to test by a bout of horrible drought. The grounds have turned to a dreadful shade of brown. The goats are slowly but surely running out of food. Together with their caretaker, Little Bo-Frilly, the gang made a decision to cross a bridge to the other side of the valley, where lush green grass awaits. The challenge was what lay beneath the bridge, a frightening troll that loves to feast on goats! Glup.

We like to always say that the grass is greener on the other side of the fence. Little did the goats know that the grass they've been longingly gazing from afar, had been beautifully painted green by the mean sly troll! It was most interesting to watch how the goats outsmart the monstrous, greedy troll in this fight for survival. 

After much effort and encounters, the goats had learned the important lessons of contentment and patience. Be contented with what they have and be patient for the drought to be over. While they survived on oats. It's not just a goats' thing. Similar to a person's life, we should exhibit contentment and patience in the hardest moment of life. The values exemplified are very relevant learning and teaching points. Love the morals weaved into this play.

This highly interactive musical did not disappoint with its meaningful storyline and catchy songs. Not available in its CD yet, I heard. This seems to contain more educational elements than the previous few productions. It mentioned and explained the term herbivore and that goats are herbivorous animals. It talked about weather forecast being something predicted, not on weather that had come to past. Always a nice way to introduce and refresh the kids' vocabulary. Definitely what parents love looking out for in kids' musicals.

We had also specially like the role of the troll. Talentedly acted and well expressed with its shaggy outfit, hunched back and husky voice. The role of the menace is always uniquely noticeable. Js were more than once frightened by its unexpected appearance, but that didn't deter them from giving it thumbs up!

Don't forget to admire the stage prop (Boulders) with creativty and imagination when you are in the theatre. And of course, find out too, the fate of this mean troll.

This must watch musical is recommended for children between ages 2 to 6, and will run till 10 May 2015. Get your tickets from sistic. Or if you plan to catch the upcoming shows by SRT, you may get the season pass for a more valued deal of 20% discount.
