‘Dragon’ heads to The Playhouse

May 05, 2014
Ronin Deschamps and Oliver Howard play the title characters of “Donald and the Dragon” at The Playhouse in Belfast.

Belfast — An entire village of 17 young actors and actresses will take the stage as The Playhouse presents “Donald and the Dragon” Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. through May 18. Members of the Children’s Theater Company include some seasoned actors and a few new to the stage.

A fierce but misunderstood Dragon (Oliver Howard) learns about friendship when the crabby old Prime Minister (Sydney Sanders) sends Donald (Ronin Deschamps) to kill him, or be killed. The lovely young Princess (Ada Potter) escapes the confinement of palace life and joins in the adventure too — with the help of mischievous Terry (Phoebe Hall-Arnett). Children and adults will warm to the host of engaging characters who fill this story with laughter and excitement and will be transported into the land of magic.

“Donald and the Dragon” is directed by Mary Weaver during the 21st year of productions at The Playhouse, 107 Church St. Admission is $5 at the door, which will open 15 minutes before curtain. This play is appropriate for children age 5 or older plus adults. The Playhouse is a small theater with limited seating, so reservations are recommended and may be made by calling 338-5777.

The Playhouse is funded in part by the Basil Burwell Foundation and supported by CLAP! Inc., a tax-exempt, 501(c)3 organization.
