Once again, our story-tellers presented to a packed audience at our annual German Story Night. We had all enjoyed supper outside, and then came into the hall to hear the stories.
First we heard a delightful German tale about a cow and her friends who somehow get up into a tree, read to us by one of our dads who works a librarian.
Next, was the ever popular puppet theatre put on by two of our mums, where our young hero went on a quest to find a house with red walls, no doors, no windows and five rooms. After much searching, and help from the children, he found an apple which fit the first few criteria but didn’t seem to have five rooms. All was revealed when his mother cut the apple to reveal the secret rooms inside.
And as a grand finale, two of our Pfadfinder scouts played out the story of Goldilocks and the three Bears for the children, using a big book, a rotating story box and many props which arrived on stage in amusing ways, with one of our teachers as a surprise guest star.
Goldilocks even enjoyed a repeat performance by popular demand on Tuesday night for the Joey and Cub scouts.
Many thanks to an ACT Children’s Week grant and to everyone who participated for the great food, music, stories and fun on the night.
