DRAGONS AND MYTHICAL BEASTS Announces Cast For Regent's Park Open Air Theatre and UK Tour

Brand new family theatre show, Dragons and Mythical Beasts, written by Derek Bond, today announces casting for its forthcoming UK Tour and summer season at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre, London. The cast includes: Ben Galpin (Dave the Hero Trainer), Antony Antunes (Puppeteer / Puppet Captain), Emily Cooper (Puppeteer / Puppet Technician), Elaine Hartley (Puppeteer), Samuel Parker (Puppeteer / Understudy Host), and Liam Wright (Puppeteer).

From the creators of the West End smash hit Dinosaur World Live, this brand-new family theatre show brings a host of mythical creatures to life on stage with spectacular life-like puppetry. Receiving its world premiere at Congress Theatre, Eastbourne on Wednesday 21 July, the production will visit over 30 venues nationwide, including a summer season at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre, from Friday 13 August to Sunday 5 September 2021. Tickets are on sale.

Enter into a magical world of myths and legends as Dragons and Mythical Beasts unveils a myriad of dark secrets. Come face to face with some of the most fantastical creatures and terrifying beasts ever to walk the earth. Meet the colossal Stone Troll, the mysterious Indrik and Japanese Baku; the Tooth Fairy (not as sweet as you'd think), an adorable Unicorn and majestic Griffin. Take your place among legendary heroes, just don't wake the Dragon...

This entertaining (and educational) new show offers an adventurous live theatre experience for all the family, ages 3 and above.

Dragons and Mythical Beasts reunites the creative team behind Dinosaur World Live. The production is co-directed by Derek Bond (Sweet Charity, Manchester Theatre Awards 2017 winner, Little Shop of Horrors Manchester Royal Exchange) and Laura Cubitt (Running Wild, Chichester Festival Theatre; Don Quixote, RSC; War Horse NT Berlin), with Associate Director Emma Brunton, Assistant Director Nicky Allpress, Puppet Designer Max Humphries (National Theatre, Royal Opera House, Cirque de Soleil), Set and Costume Designer James Perkins, Costume Supervisor Louise Smith, Composer and Sound Designer Max Pappenheim, and Lighting Designer John Maddox. Produced by Nicoll Entertainment Ltd.
