The Snow Dragon visits Soho Theatre



Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

A NEW show for children of all ages based on a story by Tall Stories founder Toby Mitchell, The Snow Dragon will run from December 8, 2005 to January 8, 2006 at London's Soho Theatre.

Tall Stories was, of course, responsible for that other hugely popular children's show, The Gruffalo which will be playing at Hamstead Theatre from December 20, 2005.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Snow Dragon however, is the story of Billy, a young and slightly spoilt goat. On Christmas Eve, his parents tell him about the legendary Snow Dragon who brings gifts to all the little goats in return for the berries they collect for him.

But Billy is lazy and soon decides that 'borrowing' berries from his industrious friends would be infinitely better than actually picking them himself. Not surprisingly, Christmas Eve isn't quite what Billy expects.

Tall Stories was founded by Olivia Jacobs and Toby Mitchell who met while working for Soho Theatre in 1996. Since then, the company has staged 15 plays across the UK, Ireland, Poland and Canada.

Besides The Gruffalo, they include Snow White, Rumplestiltskin and The Owl and the Pussycat. Their newest production, The Gruffalo's Child, will premiere at Wimbledon's Polka Theatre at the end of November.
