“The Goose that Laid the Golden Egg” plays in New Jersey

Chatham Community Players’ Fantasy Theater, the Theater for Young Audiences branch of Chatham Playhouse, presents The Goose that Laid the Golden Egg running January 9 through 11 in Chatham, New Jersey. Based on one of Aesop’s best known fables, this clever story is told from the perspective of a poor farmer’s wife named Gretchen. When a wayward traveler reluctantly leaves his pet goose in her care, Gretchen discovers that the goose lays golden eggs. The woman goes on frivolous spending sprees, but her greed for fine clothing and jewelry only grows. Hoping to get even more golden eggs, she showers the goose with special treats and neglects her hard-working chickens as well as her husband, who remains shoeless. But her new trinkets of wealth bring Gretchen only short-term satisfaction, and no matter how much she purchases from the merchants at the marketplace, she finds herself always wanting more. This fable’s message is that happiness cannot be purchased. This 45-minute comedy for family audiences has a flexible medium-sized cast of roles for child actors or adults performing for children.  For more about Fantasy Theater’s fun-filled production, go to The Goose that Laid the Golden Egg is published by Pioneer Drama Services.
