Two performances of the children’s play The Relucant Dragon at the Arts Center of Cannon County in neighboring Woodbury at 7:30 Friday night, May 9th, and a Saturday matinee at 2:00 on May 10th.
What happens when a dragon moves into the neighborhood? Find out in this delightful play based on the story by Kenneth Grahame. Our dragon, as magnificent as any dragon who ever took the stage, is not the fearsome type. He, like the boy who befriends him, is more interested in art and poetry. The villagers, however, assume that they are in grave danger and send for Sir George, the renowned dragon slayer to save them. With the boy’s help, Sir George learns that the dragon poses no threat to anyone, but to keep the villagers happy, he and the dragon stage a mock battle with great showmanship.
Directed by Miriam Lee, The Relucant Dragon features Cody Rutledge as the Dragon. Cast members include Christian Bare, Aaron Gray, Hattie Fann, Amanda Sullivan, Phil Mote, Miriam Lee, Maya Denning, Hannah Taylor, Beau Gibbs and James Bessant.
