June 5th - June 6th
Freckle Productions and Rose Theatre Kingston present
BY JULIA DONALDSON AND AXEL SCHEFFLER
Large in size, and keen in nature, Zog is so eager to win a golden star at Madam Dragon’s school, where dragons learn all the things that dragons need to know.
Zog tries so very hard, perhaps too hard, and he bumps, burns and roars his way through years one, two and three. Luckily, the plucky Princess Pearl patches him up ready to face his biggest challenge yet…a duel with Gadabout the Great!
Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s much-loved ZOG comes to life in Mike Shepherd’s (founder and Artistic Director of Kneehigh) magical adaptation with Johnny Flynn’s (The Sussex Wit) sumptuous folk score featuring live musicians. Katie Sykes‘ design lifts the book from the page and creates a real and fantastical world. From the team behind Tiddler and Other Terrific Tales and Tabby McTat, ZOG promises to be roaring fun for all ages.
