EARLVILLE, N.Y. >> The Earlville Opera House will host a The­atre for Young Au­di­ences pro­duc­tion, pre­sented by Tri-Cities Opera Go-Round, on Wed­nes­day, Nov. 14 at 10 a.m.

“Goldie B. Locks and the Three Singing Bears” will bring fairy tale char­ac­ters to life on the his­toric 1892 stage for stu­dents grades K-5 to en­joy. This arts ed­u­ca­tion ini­tia­tive serves to foster youth de­vel­op­ment through live the­atri­cal per­for­mance and meets NYS Learn­ing Stan­dards for the Arts and English Lan­guage Arts.

Opera- Go-Round, TriCi­ties Opera’s Tour­ing Ed­u­ca­tional Pro­gram, is cel­e­brat­ing 44 years of bring­ing live mu­si­cal per­for­mances to schools through­out New York and Penn­syl­va­nia. An­nu­ally, Opera- Go-Round per­forms for as many as 20,000 stu­dents. “Goldie B. Locks and the Three Singing Bears” is a retelling of the clas­sic story set to the mu­sic of Mozart and Of­fen­bach, with a brand new scenic de­sign. It is an op- er­atic ver­sion of the clas­sic fairy tale fea­tur­ing a mod­ern-day Goldie with a love of bugs, a baby bear named Pee, who’s de­ter­mined to earn his De­tec­tive Merit Badge as a Ju­nior Smoky Scout, and plenty of kid-friendly hu­mor. This John Davies cre­ation de­liv­ers a mes­sage about own­ing up to your mis­takes and con­fid­ing in the peo­ple you trust and treat­ing oth­ers as you would like to be treated.

Tick­ets are $10 and teach­ers in­ter­ested in bring­ing a class should con­tact the BOCES AIE Pro­gram at 607-335-1419 to in­quire if their dis­trict is el­i­gi­ble for ticket reim- burse­ment costs.
