Three Billy Goats Gruff

This is the simple story of three hungry goats and a grumpy old troll, told with a gentle ecological message. Watch out for the dance of the goats, the flying troll and loads and loads of rubbish. Garlic Theatre create a magical world to entrance and delight a young audience. With puppets, live music, storytelling and singing.

We travel to Sweden where the troll lives happily under his bridge fishing. Nobody knows he is there because he is so shy. The people from the town start to throw rubbish under the bridge and soon there are no more fish in the river. Our troll becomes so hungry that when he sees a goat trip trapping by he tries to eat him and the story unfolds. What happens to the troll and how is the river cleaned of all the rubbish?
