Y3 & Y4 Present: Dragon!

Wednesday, 3 April, 2019 - 18:30

Y3 and Y4 thrilled their families with a spectacular performance of 'Dragon!' at Glusburn Institute in March 2019. 'Dragon!' is the story of Princess Poppy’s quest. . Her villainous suitor, Arkamir, has killed the only dragon in the Kingdom of Freenia. As the local food chain falls into chaos without its top predator, Poppy sets off to find another dragon.

Arkamir tries to foil her quest by sending his incompetent servants, Rogil and Murk, in pursuit.

Along the way Poppy meets new friends – a Dragonologist, a Gatekeeper and a Wizard’s apprentice. With the help of the mysterious Piper, Poppy escapes from the sinister Swampbeasts, outwits Arkamir, frees the dragon Firehawk from captivity and returns home triumphant.

This fantastic show featured a particularly feisty heroine, a cast of quirky and captivating characters, and a rather different approach to an environmental issue.

Given the chance to perform on a 'real' stage Y3 and Y4 outdid themselves performing with characteristic confidence and enthusiasm. The singing and dancing was superb and the audience enjoyed every word from our young actors. Well  done to everyone involved, staff and parents alike. Special thanks to the team at Glusburn Institute who once again made us so welcome.
