About “The Invisible Dragon”
“The Invisible Dragon” is a fun and lighthearted play by Patricia Clapp. It has an important lesson about what happens when you put others first. The characters are all happy because they are trying to make everyone else happy—except the princess. She isn't happy because all she can think about is herself. A visiting prince isn't happy either because what he wants is to slay a dragon and there just aren't any around!
“Scrapmettle Entertainment and Creative Greensboro have a way of bringing the best out of talented actors and future tech crew in our community,” said Invisible Dragon Director Angela Tripp. “Our collaborations continue to allow us to showcase our youngest and brightest talents in our community by creating great children's theater.”
Chloe Thongteum, an 11-year-old actor in the production, said, “Each time I do a play with Creative Greensboro and Scrapmettle, I walk into the audition with a room full of strangers and then leave production with a new acting family. Being on stage, I feel immersed in the play. You know everything that is going on in the theater. Sort of like rereading one of your favorite books."
