“We are thrilled to be able to present our first live children’s performance since the pandemic started,” says Jan Corn head of Unity Hall’s Program Committee. “This is the third time we’ve presented the REV Theatre (formerly the Merry-Go-Round Theater) in conjunction with The Barneveld Free Library. It is a wonderful opportunity for young children to see live theatre. We thank Stewart’s Holiday Match Program for making this free performance possible.”
The REV Theatre’s Golden Goose performance follows young Hans, an inexperienced woodcutter trying to support his family. When Hans shows kindness to an injured old man in the woods, he is given the reward of a golden goose! Hans ventures into the kingdom in search of the old man to thank him. Along the way he meets several townspeople, who try to take away the goose, but become stuck to its golden feathers and nothing they try breaks them free. Meanwhile, a gloomy princess sits high in her castle. The king offers a huge reward to anyone who can make the princess laugh. Hans heads to the castle to see if he can get help with his sticky situation, and when the princess looks out her window to see what all the commotion is about, she can’t help but burst into a fit of laughter. Hans is given a huge reward and is able to help support his family. They all learn that kindness is a virtue not to be overlooked.
