Goldilocks and the Three Bears!

IMG_0830

Today at Let’s Read – West LA, we put on a play!  Three narrators and five actors rehearsed “Goldilocks & the Three Bears” while the rest of us colored in props for them to use.  Then, it was showtime!  All of our actors did a great job reading their lines (loudly) and our audience paid close attention.  Afterwards, of course, we gave everyone a big round of applause!

By the way, here is the script that we used for today’s production:

Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Characters:     NARRATOR 1, NARRATOR 2, NARRATOR 3, GOLDILOCKS, MOTHER, PAPA BEAR, MAMA BEAR, BABY BEAR

 

NARRATOR 1:   Once upon a time…

NARRATOR 2:   There lived a girl named Goldilocks.

NARRATOR 3:   Who got her name from her long, blonde hair.

MOTHER:          Goldilocks!

NARRATOR 1:   Her mother called one morning.

GOLDILOCKS:  I’m brushing my long, blonde hair, Mom!

MOTHER:          I need you to pick up some food for me in town.

NARRATOR 2:   Goldilocks came down the stairs.

NARRATOR 3:   Her mother gave her a list.  And a warning.

MOTHER:          Don’t take the shortcut through the forest.  Bears live there.

GOLDILOCKS:  I won’t.

MOTHER:          Promise?

GOLDILOCKS:  Promise.

NARRATOR 1:   Goldilocks took the list from her mother.

NARRATOR 2:   Then went skipping off toward town.

NARRATOR 3:   And, of course, she took the shortcut through the forest.

NARRATOR 1:   She should have listened to her mother.

NARRATOR 2:   Soon, Goldilocks found a small house.

GOLDILOCKS:  Mmm…  Something smells good!

NARRATOR 3:   She followed her nose and went right inside.

NARRATOR 1:   There, she found three bowls of porridge.

NARRATOR 2:   She took a bite from the first bowl.

GOLDILOCKS:  Ouch!  This is too hot!

NARRATOR 3:   Then she tried the second bowl.

GOLDILOCKS:  Ew!  This is too cold!

NARRATOR 1:   Finally, she tried the third bowl.

GOLDILOCKS:  Mmm!  This is just right!

NARRATOR 2:   And Goldilocks ate all of the porridge.

NARRATOR 3:   Next, she went into the living room.  She saw three different chairs.

NARRATOR 1:   She sat down in the first chair.

GOLDILOCKS:  Ack!  This chair is too stiff!

NARRATOR 2:   So she sat down in the second chair.

GOLDILOCKS:  But this chair is too soft!

NARRATOR 3:   Finally, she sat down in the third chair.

GOLDILOCKS:  Ah…  This chair is just right!

NARRATOR 1:   But as she rocked in the chair, it broke!

GOLDILOCKS:  Oops.

NARRATOR 2:   All the eating and sitting made Goldilocks tired.  So she went upstairs.

NARRATOR 3:   In the bedroom, she found three different beds.

NARRATOR 1:   Goldilocks tried the first bed.

GOLDILOCKS:  This bed is too big!

NARRATOR 2:   Then she tried the second bed.

GOLDILOCKS:  This bed is too small!

NARRATOR 3:   Finally, she tried the third bed.

GOLDILOCKS:  Hmm…  This bed is just right!

NARRATOR 1:   And Goldilocks quickly fell asleep.

NARRATOR 2:   She was so tired that she did not hear the three bears come home.

NARRATOR 3:   Downstairs, in the kitchen, the bear family found their bowls of porridge.

PAPA BEAR:      Someone has been eating my porridge!

MAMA BEAR:    Someone has been eating my porridge, too!

BABY BEAR:      Someone has been eating my porridge.  It’s all gone!

NARRATOR 1:   Then the three bears went into the living room.

NARRATOR 2:   They looked at their three chairs.

PAPA BEAR:      Someone has been sitting in my chair!

MAMA BEAR:    Someone has been sitting in my chair, too!

BABY BEAR:      Someone has been sitting in my chair.  And now it’s broken!

NARRATOR 3:   Next, the bear family went upstairs to the bedroom.

PAPA BEAR:      Someone has been sleeping in my bed!

MAMA BEAR:    Someone has been sleeping in my bed, too!

BABY BEAR:      Someone has been sleeping in my bed.  And she’s still there!

NARRATOR 1:   The bears all looked at the girl sleeping in Baby Bear’s bed.

NARRATOR 2:   Suddenly, Goldilocks woke up.  She saw the bear family.

NARRATOR 3:   And she was scared.  Goldilocks screamed and jumped out of bed.

NARRATOR 1:   But she remembered the good manners her mother taught her.

GOLDILOCKS:  Thank you very much for the porridge.  And I’m so sorry I broke your chair.

NARRATOR 2:   Then she ran downstairs and out the door.

NARRATOR 3:   The bear family looked at each other.

PAPA BEAR:      That girl was too weird.

MAMA BEAR:    That girl was too strange.

BABY BEAR:      That girl was not right.

NARRATOR 1:   And they never saw Goldilocks again.

NARRATOR 2:   The…

NARRATOR 3:   End!

    Thank you so much for the Goldilocks and the Three Bears script. I am a teacher in an afterschool program and we are putting on a play. Our class decided to do Goldilocks and the Three Bears. I like the way this script has three narrators so more children can participate. As each character will have an understudy, I can now have 16 parts for the play.
    My class contains students ranging from K-2, so this script is perfect for them.

    Thanks for sharing your script! We are learning about reading with expression and changing our voices for different characters. (RL 2.6) I think the students will LOVE your script. Our school just finished the music program Three of a Kind and Papa Bear and Baby Bear are already in our classroom. 🙂
