Dotty the dragon


Blunderbus theatre are bringing their acclaimed family theatre production of Dotty the Dragon to Hartlebury Castle on Thursday 25th August.

Using songs and puppetry to delight and enchant, Dotty the Dragon is the perfect way to introduce children to the magic of theatre. The performance starts at 3.30pm and promises plenty of surprises along the way, so pack a picnic and get ready to follow the adventures of Dotty the baby Fire Dragon as she goes on a journey to make friends.

Dotty lives in the castle with her grumpy dad, Mr Dragon. She loves to watch the children playing in the village below, and wishes she could play with them, too! One day Dotty has a brilliant idea - she will fly down to the village and say hello! After all, everybody loves surprises, don’t they? Join Dotty on her adventures and find out if she makes new friends, or will the village folk chase her back home again?

Claire Whitbread, Projects and Partnership Officer, said: "This is such a wonderful performance for young families to engage in the magic of live theatre and storytelling. It's a really fun and laid back performance that will really entertain young and old alike, and what better place to meet Dotty the Dragon than a castle!"

Tickets for Dotty the Dragon on 25th August are £8.50 for adults and £7.50 for children, with a family saver ticket of £30 for up to four people. The performance is suitable for children aged three and older. The performance starts at 3.30pm, the County Museum opens at 10am and has a packed programme of children activities over the summer. To book your tickets call 01299 250416 or visit the County Museum shop.
