Once Upon a Crime

Flip Kobler began his performing career as an actor before morphing into a writer. With his wife and writing partner, Cindy Marcus, they have been penning away ever since selling their first screenplay to Paramount Studios in 1988. Together they have over 30 published plays, 27 of those with Pioneer Drama. Their plays and musicals are performed worldwide.
Will justice be served in this hilarious fairy-tale courtroom play packed with characters we all know and love? Goldilocks is the defendant, on trial for breaking and entering. The plaintiffs are — you guessed it — the three bears. As their lawyers Henny Penny and Tom Thumb go toe-to-toe hoping to prove their respective clients’ cases, other fairy tale characters are called to testify as witnesses, including Hansel and Gretel, Jack and Cow, and Granny. Even the Big Bad Wolf takes the stand, but can any of these witnesses be trusted themselves? Is Goldilocks guilty or innocent? Come and find out in this comedic courtroom farce where it’s up to the audience, which serves as the jury, to determine how the play ends! HG performances are General Admission. In most cases, the theatre will be opened for you to choose your seats 30 minutes prior to the performance. Even though you are prepaid, most events do not allow for seating after the performance begins, as it is disruptive to other patrons. Please plan to arrive at least 15 minutes before the show begins.
