Birmingham Children’s Theatre Musical – The Reluctant Dragon

We’ve all heard the classic tale; an evil dragon takes captive a damsel in distress while a brave knight is forced to fight him in a blaze of fire and storm but what if there’s more to it than that?
Join us for this whimsical and imaginative tale about rethinking our own expectations and prejudices to learn that things are not always what they seem and, sometimes, dragons are better friends than foes.

Monroe Area Council for the Arts considers educational outreach programming to be one of the most vital parts of its mission. These programs have included artist residencies such as Fiber Arts in the Classroom, the Monroe County Young Authors Conference, Missoula Children’s Theatre Workshop, Arts Camps, Appalachian Roots Music Residency, and numerous other workshops led by professional artists.
Each year, MACA’s educational outreach programming serves thousands of Monroe County children. Well over half of Monroe County children come from low-income families who are unable to afford enrichment activities. However, through the support of Friends of the Arts contributors, MACA continues to offer arts programming at little or no cost to the children of our community.
