StyleMusical play (a series of linked sketches) for young children. Minimal set requirements
SynopsisThis is 'Mother Goose' in the American sense - a vehicle for stories and rhymes, rather than the English sense of a particular story about a character called Mother Goose. (For anyone curious about this difference, the American sense is taken from Charles Perrault's collection of fairy stories 'Les Contes de ma mère l'Oye' - literally 'The Tales of my mother the Goose' whilst the English version is the tale of the Goose that laid the golden eggs - generally given the English pantomime treatment, for which see elsewhere on this site.)
Anyway, in this case it's a collection of original stories and songs based on nursery stories and characters.
