Our Next Show

The Reluctan Dragon

November 2 through November 19

Crops are dying, milk is souring, and the village of Guildermere has no one to blame but the dragon who lives upon the downs. The townspeople call in the St. George to challenge the dragon to a duel, but this dragon has no interest in duels. This is a peace-loving, poetry-spouting dragon who would much prefer a cup of tea. This adaptation of the original story explores what happens when misunderstandings escalate into prejudice and violence.

Adapted by Mary Hall Surface, based on the book by Kenneth Graham, produced with permission from Dramatic Publishing Company. Performed for children and their families by our company of young actors.

$9/member, $10/visitor, $16/stay and play.
