"A masterful musical adaptation of Nash's classic that will delight both the young and the young at heart!" - Derek Gordon, Vice-President for Education (92 - 04), Kennedy Center
Based on The Tale of Custard the Dragon and Custard the Dragon and the Wicked Knight by Ogden Nash. Join Custard the Dragon and his friends as they embark on a musical journey in which a most unlikely hero finds true courage. Based on the whimsical stories by Ogden Nash, this musical tale follows the exploits of young Belinda and her three boastfully brave pets, Mustard the Dog, Ink the Cat, and Blink the Mouse, and one not-so-brave dragon, Custard. Yet when Belinda is confronted first by a fearsome pirate and then a wicked knight, it's Cowardly Custard who comes to the rescue. Audiences will treasure Custard's discovery that you can be brave, even when you are afraid -- Real courage comes from love. Audiences ages 5 and above will delight in this family musical commissioned and originally produced by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC.
