Making a timely debut on the stage following a beautifully adapted and well-received television appearance at Christmas is Zog – the well meaning if a bit clumsy dragon featured in Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s terrific best-selling children’s book.
Large in size and keen in nature, Zog is eager to win a golden star at Madam Dragon’s school – where dragons learn all the things that dragons need to know.
Zog tries very hard as he bumps, burns and roars his way through school – but luckily plucky Princess Pearl patches him, up ready to face his biggest challenge yet, a duel with Sir Gadabout the Great!
This new stage production will no doubt appeal to fans of previous book to stage adaptations of Donaldson and Scheffler’s work like The Gruffalo and Stickman and Zog has a really interesting creative team working to bring it to the stage.
Kneehigh founder and Artistic Director Mike Shepherd adapts and directs, with Katie Syke’s design bringing the pages of the book alive – and the show has an original folk score by award-winning singer-songwriter Johnny Flynn.
From the team behind Tiddler and Other Terrific Tales and Tabby McTat, Zog promises to be roaring fun for all ages.
Zog is at Chester Storyhouse from Friday 5 to Sunday 7 April and The Lowry from Friday 7 to Sunday 9 June.
