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 (award-winning actor and singer-songwriter with 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.

12th April, 4.30pm will be a relaxed & signed performance. The show and the theatre will be slightly adapted to be more accomodating for parents and children who might benefit from a more relaxed environment. The house lights will be left brighter, the sound will be quieter and a break out space, including a screen to view the performance, will be available in the St John's Bar. If you have any questions about this performance please contact the Box Office on 01223 357851 or by email, email@example.com.
