Dragon show will be magic

The Wokingham Paper - - LEISURE -

ONE of the fi­nal magic acts con­ceived by the late Paul Daniels will be per­formed on­stage in Brack­nell next week­end.

The Peo­ple’s The­atre Com­pany worked with the for­mer War­grave ma­gi­cian for 18 months af­ter first meet­ing on a pan­tomime tour.

Since his death in March 2016, the com­pany have been de­ter­mined to put to­gether a fit­ting tribute to the icon, cel­e­brat­ing his mag­i­cal life and ca­reer.

The magic rou­tine comes as part of a brand new mu­si­cal en­ti­tled Don’t Drib­ble on the Dragon, a feel-good story of two young broth­ers, Jack and Tom, and the spe­cial re­la­tion­ship they share bound to­gether by a mag­i­cal dragon.

It is a show all about grow­ing up and the im­por­tance of fam­ily and con­tains a won­der­ful mix of fun, pathos, in­stantly sing-along songs, and Daniels’ jaw­drop­ping il­lu­sions.

Writ­ten by Steven Lee, an ac­tor and artis­tic di­rec­tor of The Peo­ple’s The­atre Com­pany, and per­formed by him­self, CBee­bies star Thomas Cap­per, and Robyn Barr as the dragon, the pro­duc­tion is aimed at adults and chil­dren over two years.

Don’t Drib­ble on the Dragon comes to South Hill Park on Satur­day, Septem­ber 23 at 2.30pm. Tick­ets are £12, or £40 for a fam­ily of four.
