About the Show: Bits 'N Pieces Puppet Theatre return to NFCC's Van H. Priest Auditorium stage with their nine-foot-tall puppets for a fun and educational performance for K-3rd grade students. This year's story is the "Three Billy Goats Gruff" (a musical based on a story from Norway by P.C. Asbjornsen): In a Scandinavian mountain pass, a yodeling Norwegian herdsman and his son welcome springtime. They open a gate to let their goats out of the brown winter pasture. Across a river, in the distance is the fresh green food of springtime. The goats must cross a bridge to get there. A bridge with a Troll living underneath it. It is up to Bluff, Fluff and Tuff Gruff, the three goats, to cleverly cross the narrow bridge.
