The Reluctant Dragon

ASC presents Arkansas Arts Center Children's Theatre on Tour: The Reluctant Dragon

A dragon is “a scourge and a pest and a baneful monster.” So, what’s a boy to do when one moves into the hills above his home? Pay the beast a visit, of course. But instead of a monster he finds a civilized, thoughtful, poetry-reading new friend. Everything is fun and games until the ill-informed villagers send for St. George to slay this “reptilian menace.” That’s when the boy—armed with only a quick wit and a kind, courageous heart—must step up to save the day.
