“The Three Billy Goats Gruff” and “The Ugly Duckling” play in Ohio

The young actors at SC Enrichment Program present The Three Billy Goats Gruff as a puppet show and The Ugly Duckling as a play with masks on February 17 in Kettering, Ohio. In The Three Billy Goats Gruff, a ten-minute comedy with five gender-neutral roles, this classic tale is reinvented in a non-violent version that introduces a friendly frog, when the goats strive for a better life on the other side of the bridge. In The Ugly Duckling, a five-minute play with a large flexible cast that includes movement and group recitation for younger children who struggle with reading and memorizing lines, the misunderstood baby swan leaves her taunting duckling siblings to go on an adventure to discover friends and her true self.  To preview these scripts or other plays for children and adults, contact or visit
