The Reluctant Dragon

Based on the short story by Kenneth Grahame, The Reluctant Dragon tells the tale of a friendly and kind-hearted dragon, who is nothing like the fire-breathing beasts you might have heard of before!

One day, the dragon meets a young girl and strikes up an unlikely friendship. When word of the dragon reaches the King, he sends his best knights to rid the land of the creature. Will the knights succeed or will the girl and the dragon be able to convince the kingdom that there is more to the dragon than meets the eye?

 

An adventure with Puppets, Shadow-puppetry, Knights, Sheep and of course a dragon there is something for everyone.
