In a dark time when temperatures and oceans are rising, we’re spreading a message of light, hope and resistance. And we’re doing it with a silly and subversive puppet musical about goats!

Is it for kids? Is it for adults? Yes.

Gruff! is an interactive, family-friendly reinvention of The Three Billy Goats Gruff that calls audiences to action in the fight against climate change.

Gruff! takes place in a world that goats have transformed into a toxic junkyard. A young goat named Gruf discovers the magically hidden Troll Valley - the only surviving oasis of natural plant and animal life left on Earth. Gruf eagerly tries to convince her fellow goats to join her on a quest to make the world green again, but her elders are bent on drilling for fuel in Troll Valley. The fate of the world hangs in the balance!

Gruff! combines puppetry, physical comedy, captivating projections and unforgettable songs. The show has been presented at Muhlenberg's Summer Music Theatre, the Peoples Improv Theater and Off-Broadway at Vital Theatre Company.

Concept and Text by: Ora Fruchter and Christopher Scheer     Music by: Toby Singer
