Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s much-loved Zog comes to life at the Tyne Theatre from 10th to 12th May 2019. Mike Shepherd’s magical adaptation, with Johnny Flynn’s sumptuous folk score and Katie Sykes’ designs, create a real and fantastical world.
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!
