The full cast and creative team has been announced for the world premiere stage adaptation of Zog, based on the book by Julia Donaldson with illustrations by Axel Scheffler.
Large in size, and keen in nature, Zog is so eager to win a golden star at Madam Dragon’s school, where dragons learn all the things that dragons need to know. Zog tries so very hard, perhaps too hard, and he bumps, burns and roars his way through years one, two and three. Luckily, the plucky Princess Pearl patches him up ready to face his biggest challenge yet…a duel with a knight, Sir Gadabout the Great! Zog promises to be roaring fun for all ages.
Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s much-loved Zog comes to life in Mike Shepherd’s (founder and Artistic Director of Kneehigh) magical adaptation with Johnny Flynn’s (award-winning actor and singer-songwriter with The Sussex Wit) sumptuous folk score featuring live musicians. Katie Sykes’ design lifts the book from the page and creates a real and fantastical world.
Zog is on at Churchill Theatre, High Street, Bromley, BR1 1HA from 22nd to 24th March. Times: Varied. Admission: £17.50, 16.50. Phone: 0203 285 6000.
