Straight from its premiere performance in Philadelphia, "My Father’s Dragon" comes to the Dogwood Center on Sunday, February 25 at 3:00 p.m. Presented by Enchantment Theatre, the theatrical performance brings to life in vibrant color Ruth Stiles Gannett’s beloved stories about talking animals, flying dragons and the loveable, clever boy named Elmer who courageously rescues a captive baby dragon. "My Father’s Dragon" features over 30 puppets that seem to have popped right off the pages of Ruth Chrisman Gannett’s beautiful book illustrations.
The beloved Newbery Honor book comes to life in this charming tale about compassion, courage and friendship. Join Elmer as he sets off on a daring adventure to rescue a baby dragon who’s 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. Using puppets, masks, magical scenic effects and original music, Enchantment Theatre Company brings Elmer’s marvelous quest to the stage, with an adventure that reminds us all that we are never too young to make a difference. The performance is suggested for ages 4 years old and up.
