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. This fabulous adventure is brought to the stage with talking animals, a daring rescue, a flying dragon, buried treasure and lots of humor throughout. Using puppets, masks, inventive scenic effects and original music, Enchantment Theatre Company brings you the story of a compassionate and courageous young boy and his unlikely friendship with a splendid yellow-and-blue-striped dragon.

The JCCC Performing Arts Series Arts Education program will participate in the collaboration between Enchantment Theatre Company and Amanda Mayes, PhD, Manager of Education at Purdue Convocations as they conduct a national research study examining the impact of a live performance on students’ literacy skills.
