Camp Performance: AUGUST 3 at 3:00

In this kooky spoof of TV courtroom dramas, Amanda Marie Locks, known as Goldilocks, is on trial for breaking and entering and destruction of private property.  A wide cast of fairytale characters serve as witnesses for the prosecuting and defense attorneys.  To hear the Bare family tell it, Goldie should be found guilty.  But an unscrupulous judge and a slew of unreliable witnesses — including a blind witch, a forgetful old woman who lives in a shoe, a dwarf with a nasty disposition, and a country boy so dumb he’d trade beans for a cow — make it hard to build a case against the gal with the golden hair.  With so much conflicting testimony, no wonder the results are courtroom chaos!  The entire justice system is left in silly shambles in this slapstick one-act designed for laughs.
