Stiltskin Theatre Company present…
One morning Sam the gardener wakes up to find an egg in his veggie patch, which turns out to be a dragons egg! Pipsqueak, the dragon and Sam become the best of friends. Sam is preparing for the annual veggie competition growing pumpkins, and Pipsqueak has something very magic to help him on his way. Beware though, for the king is also growing a pumpkin ready to win, and he has never lost the giant veggie competition. Join us on this magical heart warming and fun packed adventure. Can Pipsqueak help Sam, whose pumpkin will win and can they defeat the tyrannical king?

Great fun for all the family from Stiltskin Theatre Company.
