By Tom Morris, adapted from the book by John McLay & Martin Brown

Synopsis:

Harry wants to be a Knight - but his family want him to clean their shields.

Harry’s horse Oats wants to be brave - but faints if there is danger.

Eric the Dragon is fierce - but he’s in a lot of pain.

Can Harry become a Knight? Will Oats become brave? Will Eric get better?

Local author John McLay, playwright Tom Morris and illustrator Martin Brown have collaborated with Next Stage Theatre Company’s Artistic Director Ann Ellison in bringing The Dragon’s Dentist to the stage for this World Premiere! In a cacophony of colourful costumes, a whirling of wondrous wizards, and a feast of fantastic effects, join Sir Dad and Lady Mum as they frolic with their family, hinder Harry in his quest to become a Knight, and are finally forced to face the mighty dragon, Eric.

The Dragon’s Dentist will be showing at The Mission Theatre during the Bath Children’s Literature Festival at the early evening time of 6-7pm. It is suitable for families, pre-school (4+) and school parties and anyone who is young at heart.

Review/s of The Dragon’s Dentist:

Review 1: "A fast moving hour of fun for the kids"

A World-Premiere, no less, at The Mission! A tale of wizards (at least four), dragons (well, only one, but he does have toothache), a Lord (Sir Dad - George Gent at full volume), a Lady (Lady Mum, serene Joanna Bowman) and their children, George, Agnes and red-headed Harry who wants to be a knight. Plus Oats, the horse (Max Dooley) who’s sometimes a donkey, and lots more including Eric the Viking,…click here to read the whole review.
