Together again after their award-winning romp in both the picture book and stage versions of Too Many Frogs!, Froggie and Rabbit eagerly prepare for the arrival of guests -- Goose, Gander and especially baby Gosling. There are many things to do before the guests arrive, all of which are accompanied by songs set to Ric Averill's charming music.
When the Goosey family arrives, Froggie's enthusiastic greeting terrifies Gosling, who goes into a fit of non-stop honking. In turn, that frightens Froggie and sends him into hiding. While the others try to calm Gosling, Froggie sings and dances. Gosling quiets her honking to watch him, and their friendship finally begins.
Here Comes Gosling! is perfect for the very youngest theatergoers, especially older siblings who will recognize the challenges presented by a new baby.
The script is available in a traditional format, ideal for proscenium or in-the-round presentation, or as a fully interactive play, in which all of the children in the audience become part of the action.
The traditional, one-act version of the play was produced by Pollyanna Theatre Company in Austin, Texas.
