We recently caught The Three Billy Goats Gruff by TLC and the family loves it! Jerry has been asking me to bring him back to the theatres ever since we watched Goldilocks and the Three Bears. He loved the latter so much, he asked to go back the very next day after we watched it.

The moment we stepped into Singapore Repertory Theatre, Jerry turned to ask if we are back to watch Goldilocks again. My bad. I have been so, so sick lately, I didn’t have the time nor energy to prep the kids on the musical that we are catching. I have been either in comatose state or heavily drugged and spent 4 days away from work. I was literally dragging myself out of the house that day because I would have hated it if the kids missed it because of me.

The story revolves around 3 billy goats and their care-taker, Little Bo-Frilly (who loves all things frilly). Together, they embark on a quest to find green grass during a period of drought, only to meet a troll under a bridge who loves to feast on goats! How would things turn out? Can they outsmart the troll and escape unharmed? You can only watch to find out!

Here’s a teaser of the musical.

Between the 2 musicals we watched, Jerry definitely followed The Three Billy Goats Gruff better because of the language. He could predict what was going to happen and hid behind the chair when he knows that the troll is coming out, occasionally throwing glances at me as if he is asking whether it is safe to emerge from where he was.

Funnily though, because he says he love the troll the best after the musical. Actually, me (and the husband) too…  Jerome was bouncing to the music and visibly enjoying himself as well, staying rather still in his chair throughout and not fidget like he usually would.

I personally love the toe-tapping tunes, the easy to follow plot and the very clever script. The one that stuck me after the musical was “the glutton that loves mutton“. I could totally relate to that!
