Directed by: Derek Weatherdon

The Story

This innovative new script is lively, fun and fast-paced; full of comedy and audience participation! Set in a peaceful kingdom, two friends discover and befriend a dragon lurking a cave. Their secret is exposed and suddenly the entire town is whipped into a fury and the cry goes up: "The Dragon Must be Slayed!" The only problem is, Mortimer the dragon is friendly! Our heroes love him and are desperate to save his life, so they must train their dragon for battle! Adapted from the story by Kenneth Grahame and the inspiration for the animated film “How To Train Your Dragon”, this production will feature a cast of youth and adult actors.
