ZOG


  • Main Auditorium
  • Thu 14 Feb - Sat 23 Feb
  • A Freckle Productions and Rose Theatre Kingston world premiere stage adaptation | Based on the best-selling book by Julia Donaldson | 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 Gadabout the Great!

Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's much-loved Zog comes to life in a magical adaptation directed by Mike Shepherd, with a sumptuous folk score by Johnny Flynn featuring live musicians. Katie Sykes' design lifts the book from the page and creates a real and fantastical world.

From the team behindTiddler and Other Terrific Tales and Tabby McTat, Zog promises to be roaring fun for all ages. Mike Shepherd is founder and Artistic Director of Kneehigh. Johnny Flynn is an award-winning actor and singer-songwriter with The Sussex Wit.

A delight from start to finish. A room of children laughing hysterically, all totally mesmerised by the action. Time Out on previous Freckle Productions

Zesty and delightful. A clever compelling treat Independent on previous Freckle Productions
