    Have your bowl of popcorn ready while witnessing the trial of eleven  seriously funny crimes from the World of Mother Goose. The charges include the indecent exposure of Wee Willie Winkie; the killing of an Endangered species by a woodcutter; the breach of contract by Little Boy Blue and the water safety violation of three men in a tub. Fortunately for the defendants, the Queen of Hearts’ desire to “Off with their heads!” doesn’t prevail. The whole thing is enough hilarious stress to give even a Fairy Godmother a headache. Her final judgment, made with a wave of her wand, gives her the last laugh.

    Perform this play with as few as 9 actors (playing multiple roles) or as many as 31.
    Stage some or all of the 11 cases. If all are staged, the play is 40 minutes long.
