The Carson Center

My Father's Dragon

Based on the beloved book series by Ruth Stiles Gannett, My Father’s Dragon comes to life on stage complete with talking animals, a daring rescue, a flying dragon, buried treasure, and lots of humor throughout this fabulous adventure. Enchantment Theatre Company and the Carson Center are delighted to bring you the story of a compassionate and courageous young boy and his unlikely friendship with a splendid yellow and blue striped dragon. When nine-year old Elmer Elevator hears about a baby dragon who is held captive by the ferocious animals of Wild Island, he sets off on an adventure to rescue the dragon and return him home. With the help of his friend the Alley Cat, Elmer packs everything he thinks he’ll need – including chewing gum, two-dozen lollipops, seven hair ribbons, and a box of rubber bands! With pluck and ingenuity Elmer makes his way to the Island, outwits the wild animals, and saves Boris the dragon. But can they find their way back home? As they travel over the ocean they get lost in a storm and discover a magical island of escaped canaries. The resourceful Elmer helps the canaries overcome their “curiosity disease” and uncover a stash of hidden riches. With bags of gold and the canaries’ blessings, the dauntless duo at last returns home.
