ABOUT THE SEASON

 
Unlike many theatre companies, Dragon's theatre season runs January through December. The Main Stage Series is Dragon's traditional programming series - the underrated, overlooked, and rarely performed gems that make Dragon the unique little gem that it is. Dragon's 2nd Stages series launched in 2014. It's intended to give other artists the opportunity to fully produce their passion projects with funding and mentorship from the Dragon's staff. This series works to develop new local theatre makers with the support of an established theatre company. For 2019 we've decided to offer three Main Stage Series productions and three 2nd Stages Series productions. All six shows are performed on the stage of the Dragon Theatre in downtown Redwood City. 
 
The Revolutionists

The Revolutionists by Lauren Gunderson
Directed by Kimberly Mohne Hill

January 18 – February 10, 2019

The Revolutionists is a comedic play about four women who lived boldly in France during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. Playwright Olympe De Gouge, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, loose their heads and try to beat back the extremist insanity in 1793’s Paris. What began as a hopeful revolution for the people of France and her colonies to address social and economic inequality is now sinking into hyper-violent extremist insanity. Part of the Main Stage Series. 

Macbeth poster

Macbeth by William Shakespeare
Produced by Max Tachis and Roneet Rahamim

March 15 – April 7, 2019

Witches. Prophesies. King. Queen. Love. Murder. You know the story, but you've never seen a production quite like this. Performed by a cast of eight, William Shakespeare's tragic tale of all-powerful ambition and consuming conscience takes on an entirely new life, focusing not only on WHAT propels us through life, but WHO. When power, family, and fate all intertwine, what choices do we make? And are those choices really up to us? Macbeth comes to the Dragon stage in Spring 2019 to show us all why this story remains utterly timeless and painfully relevant. Part of the 2nd Stages Series. 

Shoggoths on the Veldt poster

Shoggoths on the Veldt by Cameron McNary
Directed by Artistic Director Bora “Max” Koknar
May 10 – June 2, 2019

When famed Victorian explorer Melford Pumbleshire is torn to pieces by something horrible and unseen while on safari in deepest, darkest Africa, his redoubtable fiancé Euphonia Riggstone must lead an expedition to put his unquiet spirit to rest. This globetrotting adventure comedy has romance, betrayal, an amnesiac ghost, perfidious cultists, and a Lovecraftian tentacle monster. Part of the Main Stage Series. 

The How and the Why Poster

The How and the Why by Sarah Treem 
Produced and directed by Lana Palmer

July 12 – August 4, 2019

Two evolutionary biologists, one a graduate student, the other an established leader in her field, meet for the first time. What follows is a smart, complex work about men and women, genetics and genius, and the overwhelming power of biological connection. Part of the 2nd Stages Series. 

HickoryDickory poster

Hickorydickory by Marisa Wegrzyn
Directed by Kimberly Ridgeway

Sept 6 – Sept 29, 2019

What if we all had a literal internal clock that counted down to our time of death? This is the premise of Hickorydickory. Cari Lee’s mortal clock was tinkered with, so she’s stuck at age 17 for eternity. Now she’s the same age as her daughter, Dale, whose time may be literally running out. Hickorydickory is a funny, heartbreaking story about family, and mortality, and sacrifice. Part of the Main Stage Series.

Anne of the Thousand Days poster

Anne of the Thousand Days by Maxwell Anderson
Produced by Melinda Marks

Nov 1 – Nov 24, 2019

On the eve of her death, Anne Boleyn reflects on the journey that led her to become a queen, a mother, and, eventually, a woman condemned. A fascinating look at one of history’s most famous marriages. Part of the 2nd Stages Series.

Anybody can come to the theatre one half hour before curtain (7:30pm) and get on the rush list. At 7:55pm we will start going through the rush list. Rush ticket availability will be based on that night's unsold seat availability and the list will be cleared in order of arrival - so it's first come first served and may not always be available. This list will be managed at the discretion of the Box Office staff on a daily basis. Opening weekend is EXCLUDED from this offer.
