Event Notes

× Presented by Puente Theatre

A timely parable about immigration, friendship, sharing, and individuality, Gruff! tells the story of two goats: one wealthy with plenty to eat and one poor goat with nothing. A hideous troll has taken up residence under the bridge separating the lush green lands of the Rich Goat from the barren waste on the other side of the craggy chasm.

The troll is soon recruited to join the side of the underclass, but when the revolution is won, the victors become tyrants, and it’s up to the troll to find a way to break the cycle of greed. Gruff! is a musical for families about what happens when the grass really is greener on the other side.

Written by Mercedes Bátiz-Benét, Judd Palmer & Brooke Maxwell
