The Reluctant Dragon was the Village Playhouse's 2005 traveling children's production. This show travels to various locations in the metropolitan area.  All shows are open to the public with tickets available at the door.  (At the Lakefront Festival of the Arts the performance is free with admission to the grounds) 

The village of Guildermere blames the Dragon who lives upon the Downs for dying crops and sour milk. But this dragon is a peace-loving, poetry-spouting fellow who would much prefer a cup of tea to a battle. When Saint George arrives, the dragon and his young friend, Glaston, face quite a challenge indeed. While true to the spirit and language of the charming original, this adaptation embraces the dramatic power of what happens when misunderstanding escalates into prejudice and violence.
