Interaction with the audience is built into the script and enhanced by the set that wraps around the Gist Hall Theatre. “Various characters talk directly to audience members,” Hewston noted, “and there will be wizards and knights and enchanted children moving up and down the aisles, with battles on platforms above the audience. The latest trend in movies is 3-D, which creates the illusion that things are coming into the audience. In this production, things really are in the audience.”

That leads to one caution. “Having the dragon that close to you might be too intense for really small children,” Hewston said. “This show isn’t really for infants and toddlers.”
