The smash hit adaption from Freckle Productions (the team behind Tiddler and Other Terrific Tales and Tabby McTat) is returning this year, bigger, brighter and more roar-some than ever! This wonderful stage show is suitable for children and families of all ages.

Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s much-loved Zog is a magical production filled with brand new songs from Joe Stilgoe (The Jungle Book, The Midnight Gang) and directed by Emma Kilbey. The cast of actor-puppeteers bring the world of Zog to life with handcrafted puppets designed and created by Little Angel Theatre co-founder Lyndie Wright.

‘Large in size, and keen in nature, Zog is so eager to win a golden star at Madam Dragon’s school, where dragons learn all the things that dragons need to know. Zog tries so very hard, perhaps too hard, and he bumps, burns and roars his way through years one, two and three. Luckily the plucky Princess Pearl patches him up ready to face his biggest challenge yet… a duel with knight, Sir Gadabout the Great!’


Zog is a favourite story of mine, my children and so many others. It was first published in 2010 and won the Galaxy National Children’s Book of the Year Award and has gone on to become a perennial bestseller. The animated film also premiered Christmas Day 2018.

The 2020 cast features Billy Mahoney as Zog, Lois Glenister as Princess Pearl, Benedict Hastings as Sir Gadabout and Asha Cornelia Cluer as Madam Dragon. The cast also includes Tara Harris and Danielle Whittaker.

Zog will be at Oldham Coliseum from Friday 27th March – Sunday 29th March and The Lowry, Salford from Tuesday 28th July – Sunday 16th August.
