Cans: A Billy Goats Gruff Story

March 18 - 26, 2023

Pippin Square.jpg

When the Three Billy Goats Gruff learn of the new town dump, all they can think of is the cans they will find there: shiny cans, big cans, square cans, round cans... Cans! But what they discover at – or under – the bridge to the dump is much, much more than they had bargained for.

This workshop production, performed by kids and for kids, is the culmination of 5 weeks of rehearsals focused on collaboration and the creative process.

Cans runs March 18th-26th at The Players' Ring (105 Marcy St, Portsmouth, NH 03801). Showtimes are Saturdays and Sundays at 10am. Tickets are $18 General Admission and $15 for kids under 12, and can be purchased through The Players' Ring below.
