Dragons and Mythical Beasts UK Tour prior to Regent’s Park Open-Air Theatre

From the creators of the West End and international smash hit Dinosaur World Live, comes DRAGONS AND MYTHICAL BEASTS. Written by Derek Bond, this brand-new interactive children’s theatre show is set to delight and amaze with spectacular life-like puppetry. Receiving its world premiere at the Congress Theatre, Eastbourne on Thursday 21 May, the production will visit over 40 venues nationwide, including a summer season at London’s Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre from Tuesday 11 August to Sunday 6 September 2020. Casting to be announced.

Dragons and Mythical Beasts

Enter into a magical world of myths and legends in this spell-binding new adventure for all the family, as DRAGONS AND MYTHICAL BEASTS unveils a myriad of dark secrets. Come face to face with some of the most magnificent monsters and terrifying beasts ever to walk the earth. Meet the colossal Stone Troll, the mysterious Indrik and Japanese Baku; the Tooth Fairy (not as sweet as you’d think), an adorable Unicorn and majestic Griffin. Take your place among legendary heroes, just don’t wake the Dragon…

Writer and Co-Director Derek Bond says: “This show is for everyone who has ever dreamed of getting up close to a dragon or a unicorn! We’re going to take you on a quest; the only equipment you’ll need is your imagination and our team of brilliant puppets and puppeteers will do the rest. What makes a true hero? Come and find out!

The live show is followed by a post-show ‘meet and greet’, where audience members are invited to experience some of these fantastic beasts up close and in person.

This entertaining and engaging new show is sure to delight the whole family, whilst also educating young people (and adults) about these wondrous creatures from myth and legend. Heroes and champions alike are urged to book tickets fast before they vanish out of sight!

DRAGONS AND MYTHICAL BEASTS reunites the creative team behind Dinosaur World Live. Co-directed by Derek Bond (Sweet Charity, Manchester Theatre Awards 2017 winner, Little Shop of Horrors Manchester Royal Exchange) and Laura Cubitt (Running Wild, Chichester Festival Theatre; Don Quixote, RSC; War Horse NT Berlin); Puppet Designer Max Humphries (National Theatre, Royal Opera House, Cirque de Soleil); and Lighting Designer John Maddox. Produced by Nicoll Entertainment Ltd.
