The Dragon Who Liked to Spit Fire
Seeking strong (vaccinated) musical theater performers for a premiere work of this sweet, original kids show based on the book, “The Dragon Who Liked to Spit Fire” by Judy Varga. (Script, Lyrics and Music by Sim Glaser) This lovely little musical is written in verse and peppered with vibrant songs throughout!
Darius the Dragon and Princess June are the best of friends, but there are special challenges at the palace when you have a dragon for a pet! Come join them as they explore how they can create the fire they need to be true to themselves.
All roles are flexible with age, however the Prince is 8-12 years old and the King and Queen should be able to play late 40s or older+.

Prince Giles - (dreams of being an architect)
King Keith (who is inventing a new sport)
Queen Gwendolyn (loves gardening more than anything)
Artemis the Painter
Jester Rolf (male, actually loves what he does)
