Elmwood Players Children’s Theatre

“The Near Sighted Knight And The Far Sighted Dragon”


By Eleanor and Ray Harder


Directed by Susan Cameron and Garry Thomas


On stage January 2013

 

A snappy, action-filled fairy tale.  Despite his extreme near-sightedness, an unemployed knight charges everything in his path, hoping to become a hero so he can get a job.

 

He tries to convince a career-minded princess she needs rescuing. But she's busy working on a mathematical formula to rescue her father, the king, imprisoned by a power-hungry duchess.

 

The knight charges forward, uninvited, to rescue the king, then he becomes sidetracked by an opportunity to fight a dragon.

Season has now concluded.

 

 

The Near Sighted Knight...

 

The non-violent, rather mellow dragon and the exasperated princess subdue the knight and then the trio follow the princess' plan to rescue the king.
