Skewbald Theatre proudly presents Michael Morpurgo’s Mimi and the Mountain Dragon
A magical musical puppetry adventure adapted from the book Mimi and the Mountain Dragon, written by Michael Morpurgo and illustrated by Helen Stephens.
High up in the snowy mountains of Switzerland the villagers of Dorta bang their drums, blow their horns and ring the bells to keep the fearsome Mountain Dragon away. But this year is different.
One snowy morning Mimi discovers something extraordinary: a baby dragon sleeping in her woodshed! The little creature is lost and frightened, but how did he get there and what happens when his mother comes looking for him? Mimi must be extremely brave if she is going to reach the Dragon’s castle at the very top of the mountain and return the baby to its mother.
With lively original songs, atmospheric storytelling and magical puppets, Mimi and the Mountain Dragon is an exciting new show about friendship, courage and adventure for anyone who loves snow, dragons and stories.
