Embark on an adventure with My Father’s Dragon at the Bank of America Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza, Fred Kavli Theatre, Saturday, January 20, 2018 at 2:00 p.m.
Based on Ruth Stiles Gannett’s beloved, award-winning and best-selling Dragon trilogy, Enchantment Theatre Company’s My Father’s Dragon features talking animals, flying dragons and buried treasure! Elmer sets off on a daring adventure to rescue a baby dragon being held captive by the ferocious animals of Wild Island. With pluck and ingenuity Elmer makes his way to the island, outwits the wild animals and saves Boris, the dragon. But can they find their way back home? Using life-size puppets, expressive masks, magical scenic effects and original music, Enchantment brings to life this remarkable tale that reminds us all that we are never too young to make a difference.
The Enchantment Theatre Company awakens imaginations of every age with its whimsical telling of new and classic fables, myths and legends. For this production, they bring to vivid life a story that has been honored by Newbery and the American Library Association, named among the top 100 books for children by the School Library Journal, and is celebrating its 70th anniversary of publication in 2018. With “delightfully logical nonsense, appealing characters, and irrepressible humor,” (the New York Times), the production is a tale of derring-do and laughter, too.
