Poetry-Loving Dragon's Tale Enthralls Young Children

Reynolds Academy children take part in The Reluctant Dragon with Image Musical Theatre actors.


Image Musical Theatre has been delighting the pupils at Reynolds Academy for a number of years now with performances such as The Selfish Giant and Robin Hood. This year's offering, The Reluctant Dragon, did not disappoint and children were enthralled by the beautiful and moving tale of a dragon found living in the hills, and the young boy who befriends him.

Reynolds Academy pupils were joined by some of the children from Theddlethorpe Academy so that they too could share in the experience. Some children were even lucky enough to perform in the play alongside the actors.

Rebecca Scott, Reynolds Academy Principal, said: "We hope that bringing a live theatre into the Academy will give our own budding actors, actresses and writers something to aspire to and provide all children with a love of Literature and The Arts."


The Reluctant Dragon is really a poetry-loving lizard.
