|The Three Billy Goats Gruff - Credits|
It's an open secret that we are avid fan of SRT - The Little Company (TLC). They are hard to resist especially with their slick child friendly productions. Thus when the invitation arrived for a review of TLC The Billy Goats Gruff, we had to butt in quick and accept it.
Sure enough, it was another hour of engaging and entertaining hour spend at DBS Arts Center. The tap dancing trio of Billy Goats , the sweet Little Bo Frilly and the menacing Troll are a well polished ensemble to an afternoon of rock and rap. The standout performance for us will definitely be the Troll (Benjamin Chow) with his raspy voice and lip smacking antics whenever he croons about goats stew and kambing soup. For fans of The Little Company, you would probably recognise the Troll and Bo Frilly as Santa and Penguin in Junior Claus.
The storyline is simple enough.
The Three Billy Goats Gruff( Baby, Middle and Big) are facing a drought. As their side of the ground turns into a dreadful shade of brown, they look to the green grass at the other side of the valley and decided to travel their with their caretaker, Little Bo- Filly. But first they would need to cross the dreaded bridge. The goat feasting Troll lives under the bridge and demands a toll of a goat as payment. Will the gang make it through alive?
We think it is best that you see the show to find out!

Some of the actors and actresses had appeared in other productions. At times they may even take on multiple roles within the play itself. Take Benjamin Chow for example, we had seen him as the Troll, Mr Bo , Dasher the Reindeer and Santa Claus. Given the diversity of the roles, it is impressive to see one actor immersing himself in each one of them.
