About the Show: The internationally acclaimed Bits ‘N Pieces Puppet Theatre returns to NFCC's Van H. Priest Auditorium to perform ”Three Billy Goats Gruff," a lively and colorful musical production for young audiences featuring towering nine-foot-tall dancing puppets, live actress Holli Rubin, and a host of other singing and dancing characters. Children will be delighted by the glo-in-the-dark puppets as they sing and dance and live happy ever after. Bluff Gruff, the innocent goat, uses his brains to cross the bridge. Fluff Gruff, played by live actress Holli Rubin, points out the fine points of avoiding a bully. Tuff Gruff shows that sometimes actions speak louder than words. Together they prove there’s nothing you can’t do.

The CLASSROOM ACTIVITY GUIDE includes classroom activities and children’s activity pages keyed to the National, Common Core and Florida Sunshine State Standards.
