About the Show:

Everyone knows that dragons don’t exist . . .

But when one is magically summoned by a group of malcontents, fire awashes the great city of Ankh-Morpork in a bid to replace the elected Patrician with a King – that the villianous Lupine Wonse seeks to control. And all that is standing between order and chaos is the washed up members of the City Night Watch, a small swamp dragon called Errol and the Librarian (who is an Orangutan). This is a comedic adventure of dragons, people and apes!

Available Roles:

NOTE : Technically there is only one absolute FEMALE role in the production,
but most CHARACTERS can be played by either gender. This means either changing the gender of the original character, or playing some characters gender neutral.
The right person for the right role.

We are looking for a Cast of up to 20, so apart from Main Roles, we are seeking actors who can
double-up or even triple-up with some very good character roles, as well as being background extras.

Versatility, adaptability, a sense of humour, commitment and enthusiasm is what we will cast on.
