About Dragon Days

  • Works as a whole-school production, but for smaller productions most suited to years 5 and 6
  • Words on Screen™ v2 CD ROM for easy rehearsing using highlighted lyrics synchronized with the music
  • Adaptable script for large group performances
  • 20 fantastically dramatic sound effects and scene change tracks that will really enhance your performance
In the pretty, alpine village of Stumbledorf (just a short ‘trip’ away), the overdramatic villagers await a hero to rescue them from the mythical creature whose presence overshadows their otherwise idyllic mountain home. Just in the nick of time, seemingly in fulfilment of an ancient prophecy given by three wizened old crones, Tommy Rumble and his fearsome mother stumble into Stumbledorf, which causes great excitement. Could Tommy finally be the answer to the village’s problems? Can he get fit in time to fight the dragon or will jealousy and mischief thwart his heroic exploits? Has the dragon really developed a taste for goats, or is it just a social media feeding frenzy? Will the village ever be free of its Dragon Days? There’s only one way to find out…

There are 68 speaking parts in this production. This can easily be increased by adding more children to the large group scenes.

Brilliant

By

Perfect for primary school children. Hilarious but also has a good moral


The greatest show in the whole, wide world!

By Shirley Primary School

"A perfect play for Years 3 and 4." "I loved listening to the soundtrack and everyone was lucky to get a part. I played Gilda and I loved it! I got to add a lot of expression especially when she went through the mountains!" "Being in Dragon Days and especially playing Villager 1, was a time that I will never forget in my whole life!" "I loved the hashtag song and the actions we added to the dance." "My mum loved the hashtag song so much that she even joined in with the hashtag actions!"


Fiery-wonderful musical!

By Fishycarrot

Wow. This performance has EVERYTHING! Catchy songs, hidden leimotifs and funny jokes, it's a wonderful experience for the entire school.


excellent

By critic

This is a very good play with 9 enjoyable songs.


The children were "sold" as soon as they heard the first song!

By St Mary's

The kid's and parents loved it! It's going to be hard to beat this production. A witty script, catchy songs and a perfect length. Everyone involved found it manageable.


It made grown teachers cry!

By Teresa - Carrington Infant School

Just a quick email to say how much we are enjoying performing Dragon Days. We had to adjust it a little bit – our children are Y2. Our soloists for Dragon skin shoes and a Dragon’s life made grown teachers cry!


A Great Success

By Headteacher - Wirral

Our Year 6 class have just finished performing Dragon Days and it has been a great success with the children and parents. The script is up to date with modern references (#Selfies) and the songs are catchy and appeal to Year 6 children. Thanks to the advice given in the script, it was easy and quick to adapt the show for a class of 35 children.


It is amazing!

By Wotton gilbert primary school

I loved acting as Gawain and the solo I had touched the hearts of many viewers. I was very happy that there was two chances of getting a solo. Some parts of the play were very funny,but this is the only play I've ever done that has a moral. Thank you for creating this extraordinary play!!! :-)
