Full Length Musical

A boy who "reads too much" encounters a dragon who is most "undragony." The boy overcomes his prejudices about dragons when he discovers that this one would rather write poetry than fight and breathe fire. Their secret friendship flourishes until St. George, the famous dragon slayer, comes to town. The townspeople, seeing the opportunity for some excitement, tell St. George a variety of tall tales about the dragon's dastardly deeds. Upon hearing their exaggerations about "the beast," St. George swears that he will slay it in mortal combat. However, the boy, the dragon, and the knight arrive at a delightful compromise. This musical adaptation is rich with harmony and musical whimsy. The dragon (played by four actors!) sings in lush four-part harmony. Children and adults alike thrill to this show's comic antics and unforgettable melodies. Area staging.
