Stories Alive: Annual Spring Puppet Show – “The Three Billy Goats Gruff”

It’s May!  Time once again for the Annual Puppet Show at the Children’s Department at CLP-Main.

This year we present “The Three Billy Goats Gruff,”a story about three hungry goats who are hoping to eat the tender green grasses that grow in the meadow on the other side of the bridge. But the bridge is guarded by a mean, hungry Troll with stinky fish breath. He will not let them pass! The three clever goats are not about to let the Troll stop them, so they find a way to trick the Troll and cross the bridge.

All throughout the month of April, Children’s Librarians in the Children’s Department at CLP-Main had lots of fun practicing lines and getting ready to share this exciting story with our visitors. At our first performance, children and their grownups cheered as Lars, Leif, and Colby Gruff were able to fool the Troll and make their way over the bridge and into the meadow.

Performances run throughout the month of May – you can find the schedule here. In addition, there will be five performances during our Summer Reading Extravaganza on June 7th.  If you are coming to Extravaganza and would like to see the show, please try to attend one of the early performances, as the later shows are usually full and we don’t want you to miss it.

Hope to see you at Main, either for a scheduled performance in May or at Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh’s Summer Reading Extravaganza on June 7th!
