Creating the best in children's theatre for over 17 years!
Dotty is a baby fire dragon.
She lives in a dusty old castle with her grumpy dad,
Mr Dragon. She loves to watch the children playing
in the village below and wishes that she can be their friend. Then, one night, - Dotty has an idea.
When Mr Dragon is fast asleep, Dotty tip-toes away, climbs through the castle window and flies down to
the village. She can’t wait to surprise the villagers.
After all, everyone loves surprises, - don’t they?
But not everyone loves dragons! Even a cuddly, fluffy, friendly baby fire dragon. And so, our fairytale begins.
About the show

So, why book us?
Because our shows sell! Our outdoor tour 2015 broke all box-office records, playing to full houses from start to finish. We produce beautiful shows that appeal to a family audience and create magical theatrical experiences for everybody to share. Our shows are funny, clever and very interactive, - and our production standards are excellent.
You are booking a professional theatre show, with full scenery, puppets, props, costumes and special effects. In fact, everything you see onstage has been lovingly created by hand in our Nottinghamshire-based workshop.
What we offer:
Fully self-contained show
We bring a fully self-contained outdoor show, with scenery, props, costumes, puppets and sound equip-ment. It's your choice whether you have a one act version (1 hour), or you offer your audience a two act version with a short interval (1 hour 40 mins).
We perform whatever the weather
It's an outdoor show, so we will perform even on a rainy day. Our performers
are used to telling our story in all kinds of summer weather, and if we get wet,
the show will still go on. But for our audience, we set up three large blocks of
waterproof sheltered gazebos which can house up to 200 audience members.
So, if it rains, our audience stay nice and dry.
