Heidi A Goats Tale

A new adaptation by Andrew Pollard
The classic tale of Heidi, the irrepressible little girl with a big heart who changes the lives of all she meets.Heidi – A Goat’s Tale But this stage adaptation has a twist. The story is seen through the eyes of a band of unruly goats. Sent to live with her stern Grandfather in the Swiss Alps, Heidi learns about the mountain way of life but is soon unhappily torn from it to go and live in the big city as a companion to the wealthy invalid, Clara. How will Heidi cope in the stiff formality of the rich household? Will she ever see her beloved Grandfather and her best friend Goat Peter ever again? Will the goats ever behave?!
