Review by Stéphane Potvin
Recently, the George R. Allan school students and staff presented a production of Porridge, a humorous musical play counting in its midst, characters like the Three Bears, Goldie Lox (Goldilocks), Mother Hubbard, Jack Spratt, Simple Simon, Three Billy Goats Gruff, Peter Piper, and many more.
The play is described as follows: When a crime wave hits Happy Valley, there’s a caseload of mysteries to be solved! Who’s stolen Ma Hubbard’s recipe book? Who’s kidnapped Marigold the cow? And what dirty secret is Papa Bear hiding behind his Porridge empire?
