Goose and Gert

Gert just wants some peace and quiet. Goose just wants a friend. Created for very young children, Kerfuffle’s “Goose and Gert” is a playful, silly, and whimsical play in the park that explores friendship, opposites, and noise! Featuring live music, it is best enjoyed by children ages 2-6 years old with their families.
