“Merlin’s Apprentice and the Deadly Dragon” is a week-long workshop for children interested in exploring the exciting world of theatre.

The camp is designed to give children ages 7 and up the unique opportunity to work and perform with three professional actors from The Old Creamery Theatre while they rehearse and present a play. “Merlin’s Apprentice and the Deadly Dragon” is a brand new musical full of magic and madcap fun. Featuring a lot of jolly jesters, enchanted frogs, perservering princesses, and very eager apprentices, this production is a wonderful way for boys and girls to have a fantastic theatrical adventure this summer.
