Have you ever wondered why Goldilocks broke into the Bears’ house and ate their porridge? Indeed why were the Bears living in a house at all?
Well, a long time ago, on an island not far away, there lived a happy community of rabbits, squirrels, foxes, mice, hens and other animals. Everybody got on very well, even with the newly arrived wealthy Russian bears that lived in the big house. As usual there was a troublemaker who tried to tempt the animals into making bad decisions, but he never made much impression, that is until a cheeky girl came over from the mainland and refused to toe the line.
Then chaos ensued, magic spells gone wrong, porridge tampered with, and – worst of all - the disappearance of Baby Rabbit. Who will solve the mystery? And will they all live happily ever after? Well of course they will – it is a pantomime after all.
