Epico the Dragon – Animatronic puppetry and creature based street theatre performance.
Sir Aurelious Jones, the pirate knight, gathers a crowd and chooses three children from the audience. Having passed three tests and won the Golden Breastplates they accompany Sir Aurelious on a quest to find and tame the beast! In the Dragons Lair the children meet Epico and must rescue Sir Aurelious from certain death before teaching him how to become friends with the dragon. Having saved his life, the children are knighted before leaving the heroic world transformed. At the end of the show there will be a once in a lifetime opportunity for all to get up close and personal with biggest, brightest & most beautiful creature ever seen. You could make friends…but only if you dare!
