Townsville’s award winning Props Youth Theatre returns this January with
a frantically-funny fractured fairy-tale that will have children of all
ages laughing joyously before school goes back…
The Goldilockpick and Little Red Riding Hoodlum Double Feature!

The first play, “The Adventures of Goldilockpick and Little Red Riding
Hoodlum”, tells the true story of Goldilocks and Little Red Riding
Hoodlum – two very naughty girls who battle it out for control of the
magical woods. Along the way, they are caught up in a heist on the Queen
of Hearts’s tarts and fall in love with The Knave of Hearts and Little
Boy Blue. Before they reach their happy endings, however, their rivalry
sees the two mischievous girls hurled about in slapstick fashion, caught
in a very embarrassing predicament and splattered with tarts in a wild
food fight!

The second play, “Goldilockpick and Little Red Riding Hoodlum… in
Wonderland?”, continues the tale, as Goldilocks and Little Red have
apparently settled down with the Knave and Boy Blue and been given the
titles of White Queen and Red Queen by the Queen of Hearts. As their
rivalry re-emerges, however, a new girl arrives in town. Stepping
through the looking glass is Alice, a sly, scheming girl who charms The
Queen of Hearts and aims to take the throne by marrying her spoilt son –
Prince Perfect. Before she can claim the kingdom, however, Goldilocks,
Little Red and the eccentric denizens of Fairyland swing into action
with a slapstick plan that will leave Alice and Prince Perfect red-faced
and very messy in a cringe-worthy, cream-tart conclusion!
Written by local playwright Todd Barty, The Goldilockpick and Little Red
Riding Hoodlum Double Feature is a fairy-tale like no other. Adults will
be delighted by the re-imagining of the well-known stories, while
children will laugh non-stop at the crazy, slapstick physicality, mess
and unashamedly childish humour. Do not miss this wildly funny treat in
the January school holidays!
