Once Upon a Crime Play


Once Upon A Crime: Two One Act Plays-
The Trial of Goldilocks & The Girl With The Golden Locks
Performed at the Papa Bear Courthouse in Ovid, NY

Come and experience Goldilocks & The Three Bears (and many more fairy tale characters) as you have never seen them before, in The South Seneca Falcon Players production of Once Upon A Crime! The Falcon Players have put together two one act plays to share with the community, performing in THE MOST appropriate of locations for these hilarious crime comedies: The Papa Bear Courthouse in Ovid, NY! 
The Trial of Goldilocks is a unique and enchanting story told completely in rhyme, mime and mirth as the hard of hearing judge, the harried clerk, a very active jury, two comic lawyers & the audience examines the familiar fairy tale from three points of view.  Guilty or innocent? Was the young girl a selfish, spoiled brat, intruding where she didn't belong? Or was she the victim of three conniving bears and their animal "band of hoods" in the woods?  Then enter the world of fairy-tale espionage and intrigue with The Girl With The Golden Locks where top-level spies take on the kingdom’s worst criminal masterminds.  Agent Gold is the girl with the golden locks and the top agent at the FBI, that is, the Fairytale Bureau of Intelligence.  Her partners are a pair of sisters — Rose Red, who is known as Agent Red, and rookie agent Snow White.  With a little help from Agent Wolf, who serves as her “mole,” Agent Gold takes on the biggest mission of her life.  She must save the kingdom from public enemy number one, the Three Bears, who have recently acquired a COW from a boy named Jack and plan to destroy the entire kingdom with it!  Facing dwarves and witches, porridge and magic beans, giants and double-agents, Agent Gold and her crack team will have their work cut out for them as they race to stay one step ahead of the bears to save the kingdom.
