Dragon is a bully.
Dragon is a TERRIBLE bully.
He makes everybody’s life miserable, from the King down to the lowliest maid; from the princess to the knights to the wizard to… well you get the idea.
He meets a very persistent vacuum salesman.
He meets his match.
We won’t give away the story but he does learn that he can use his strength, size and flaming breath to help people AND it actually feels good to do so!
This show has not only a good story and a good moral, it also has a large cast of beautifully realized, authentically costumed puppets and of course Dragon; huge, scaly, shiny and VERY hot of breath. There is a full original musical score.
To help tell the story we employ, moving scenery, special lighting (including some “semi-intelligent” lighting) and loads of special effects including some micro pyrotechnics especially developed for this show. The show is a visual treat.
“The Dragon’s Birthday” is designed for grades 2-6 and runs nearly an hour. Very young children may be frightened by the dragon or find the show too long. This show can also be tied into units of study around medieval times or literature set in that time frame.
