Once Upon a Shoe or The Rhymes and Mimes of Mother Goose and Her Traveling Troubadours
Once Upon a Shoe or The Rhymes and Mimes of Mother Goose and Her Traveling Troubadours
By Joseph Robinette.

Cast: 7 to 30, flexible. Mother Goose sadly announces to her children that they must leave their home—a large, comfortable shoe—and move to an old sneaker "across the tracks." The children decide to "put on a show" to save their shoe, and in the best Garland/Rooney tradition, they proceed to enact eight of Mother Goose's best poems. In the audience, a stranger turns out to be the famous movie producer Cecil B. DeMillstream and, of course, he loves the show! The shoe is saved and Mother Goose and her troupe are off to Hollywood. According to one director of children's theatre, "It was absolutely perfect for a real Mother Goose who had to put on a play with 20 eight-to fourteen-year-olds." One ext. set. Approximate running time: 40 minutes.
