Elmwood Players Children’s Theatre
“The Near Sighted Knight And The Far Sighted Dragon”
By Eleanor and Ray Harder
Directed by Susan Cameron and Garry Thomas
On stage January 2013
A snappy, action-filled fairy tale. Despite his extreme near-sightedness, an unemployed knight charges everything in his path, hoping to become a hero so he can get a job.
He tries to convince a career-minded princess she needs rescuing. But she's busy working on a mathematical formula to rescue her father, the king, imprisoned by a power-hungry duchess.
The knight charges forward, uninvited, to rescue the king, then he becomes sidetracked by an opportunity to fight a dragon.
Season has now concluded.
The non-violent, rather mellow dragon and the exasperated princess subdue the knight and then the trio follow the princess' plan to rescue the king.
Young, unemployed knight, near sighted, acts without thinking.
Old, semi-retired, far-sighted, friendly and mellow.
Young and stroppy. Meticulous planner. Uses mathematical formulas to solve all problems.
Kindly but likes the idea of being treated as the King.
Scheming to take over the kingdom.
Captain of the Guards
The Duchess’ right hand man. A bit of a bumbler.
Duchess’ son. Lazy and generally bored.
Melanie Mellor, Genna-Kate Ryan
