Join us for the Rev Theatre’s production of The Golden Goose.
The Rev Theatre Co. (formerly The Finger Lakes Musical Theatre Festival/Merry-Go-Round Playhouse, Inc.) is on tour with The Golden Goose and will be performing at the Lansing Library on Saturday, August 7th at 11:00am.
Based on the classic Brothers’ Grimm story, The Golden Goose follows young Hans, an inexperienced woodcutter trying to support his family. When Hans shows kindness to an injured old man in the woods, he is given the reward of a golden goose! Hans ventures into the kingdom in search of the old man to thank him. Along the way he meets several townspeople, and when they try to touch the goose to take one of the beautiful golden feathers, they become stuck and nothing they try breaks them free. Eventually the entire kingdom is stuck to the goose. Meanwhile, a young, gloomy princess sits high in her castle. The king offers a huge reward to anyone who can make the princess laugh. Hans heads to the castle to see if he can get help with his sticky situation, and when the princess looks out her window to see what all the commotion is about, she can’t help but burst into a fit of laughter. Hans is given a huge reward and and is able to help support his family. They all learn that kindness a virtue not to be overlooked.
