The Very Hungry Caterpillar

You’ve Got Dragons

‘Dragons come when you least expect it. You turn ‘round… and they’re there.’

Lots of people get them: bad dreams, swirly tummy, feeling prickly. And sometimes they make you feel alone. So, what can a young child with a bad case of the dragons do?

A delightful tale of one child’s journey to come to terms with their dragons told in Taking Flight’s unique style. With live, original music, this highly visual, sensitive production is a humorous and touching exploration of the dragons we all face.

An intergenerational show, featuring creative captioning, interwoven BSL and audio description, You’ve Got Dragons is for the whole family. And remember… ‘No dragon is more powerful than YOU!’
