Set in the medieval fairytale village of Tea 'N' Crumpet, The Reluctant Dragon tells the tale of a teenager, Joey Bishop, whose love of dragons and inquisitive nature force him to venture off in search of a dragon that has reportedly been terrorizing the countryside, much to the chagrin of his worrying parents. What he finds instead is a sweet old dragon (named Dennis D. Dragon) and three baby all-singing, all-dancing dragonettes, whom he quickly befriends. Things seem idyllic until the Mayoress of the village hires a dragon-slaying knight to hunt down Dennis then it's up to Joey to secure a "happy ending."
This fun and friendly musical is loosely adapted from the children's book, The Reluctant Dragon, by Kenneth Grahame. It includes several original musical selections, some highlights of which are: "Gonna Find That Dragon," "A Fabulous Day," "The Dragon Stomp," and "The Mayoress Rap."
With show-stopping numbers and tongue-in-cheek lyrics and dialogue, this show is campy fun for the entire family, carrying a message of tolerance and friendship.
