Paul Daniels' Magic Adds To Enchanting Children's Tale
Magic designed by the late Paul Daniels will be sharing the stage with a dragon when an exciting new children's story embarks on an extensive tour of the UK. Don't Dribble On The Dragon is based on the fabulous new book by Steven Lee and is brought to the stage by The People's Theatre Company.

New children's story Don't Dribble On The Dragon


Directed by Nick Lane, Don't Dribble On The Dragon, which comes to the Lichfield Garrick theatre on February 23, tells the story of two brothers, one of whom has a secret dragon hidden inside a box. Unfortunately, younger brother Tom is just a toddler who seems unable to stop himself from dribbling. And when his seemingly endless drooling threatens to tear the brothers' friendship apart it is left up to the dragon and his amazing magic to try to help them make up. While clearly aimed at children from the age of two upwards, this musical adventure, which features real magic designed by the legendary Paul Daniels, also deals with the issues of growing up and the importance of family.
