The award winning company Skewbald Theatre bring Michael Morpurgo’s atmospheric tale of Mimi and the Mountain Dragon magically to life.
High up in the snowy mountains of Switzerland the villagers of Dorta bang drums, blow horns and make a noisy racket to keep the fearsome Mountain Dragon away.
But this year is different. One snowy morning Mimi discovers something extraordinary – a baby dragon sleeping in her woodshed! The little creature is lost and frightened but how did he get there and what if his mother comes looking for him? Mimi must be extremely brave if she is going to help the little dragon find his way home.
With lively original songs, atmospheric storytelling and magical puppets this is an exciting family show about friendship, courage and adventure for anyone who loves snow, dragons and stories.
