Musical. Book, music and lyrics by Douglas Post. Based on the stories by the Brothers Grimm.
Cast: 7m., 5w., extras. This winner of the first Cunningham Commission Award for Youth Theatre is an inspiring musical about the magic of storytelling. One winter's day, Hans, a farm boy who has lost his way in the woods, stumbles across a golden key. It unlocks an enchanted chest that holds the imprisoned Gerhardt the Great and his troupe of traveling players. To show their thanks, the players perform three tales for Hans: The Golden Goose, The Three Huntsmen and The Four Skillful Brothers. Their theatrical antics are underscored by a collection of songs that range in style from ballads to blues to rock. Finally, the players depart, leaving Hans with some valuable lessons about generosity, loyalty and hard work. Unit set. Approximate running time: 75 minutes.
