Based on the original folk tale, in the beginning of the story the goat is leaving her kids at home and telling not to open the door to anyone except her. Once the mother left, seven little goats began dancing and singing, which attracted the attention of the wolf, who tried to sing like their mother and come inside the house, however failed to do so. In search of a singing teacher, the wolf met a lot of characters on his way: “wonderful butterflies” – the youngest dancers of ballet studio of the Russian Centre, “sunlight rays” – children from ballroom dance studio and “happy frogs” – kids from vocal studio at the RCSC, who eventually taught the wolf how to sing. After second attempt of wolf singing, the goats mistaken him for their mother and opened the door. But they managed to call the police, who reached on time and rescued the little goats. Young actors and their mesmerizing performance have earned standing ovations from the audience.
At the end of the program, a Head of the representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo Ayrat Akhmetov congratulated little actors with a great successof the play and wished them many new performances in future.
