Once upon a time, in a place not too far from here, there lived a dragon…

Dragon on the Hill is an interactive drama workshop that combines dramatic play and performance.

Our arts educator performers will help the audience warm up their bodies, voices, and imaginations (just like actors do!) so they can help tell the story of the Dragon on the Hill.

The audience will use their imaginations, learn a song, make sound effects, and with their help, the Dragon will discover what it needed all along.

Did you know that the Dragon puppet we use for our workshop is 20 years old? The puppet was originally made for Carousel Players’ production of The Hobbit in our 2001-2002 season, and traveled across Ontario and Quebec.
