Sir George and the Dragon with the Three Billy Goats Gruff by Pumpernickel Puppets
Two classic tales retold for the kids who don't like bad guys! Bright, fun, and heartfelt, these timeless tales are great for the whole family.
Come see two classic tales retold for the kids who don't like bad guys! Join an adventurous princess as she journeys to Mystery Mountain to visit the Great Green Dragon. Along the way you'll meet Zelda the babysitter, Sir George and his clumsy dog, and of course, a lovable dragon. Then, in "The Three Billy Goats Gruff," the quick-witted billy goats outsmart a troll, but the troll isn’t really mean—he’s just green, has a snaggletooth, and lives under a bridge. Bright, fun, and heartfelt, these timeless tales are great for the whole family!

About the Artist:
The Pumpernickel Puppets are the creation of John McDonough of Worcester, Massachusetts. John was four years old when he saw his first puppet show, and he immediately knew that he wanted to be a puppeteer. By his teens, John was presenting shows all over the New England area. The Pumpernickel Puppets have had the honor of appearing at the Puppet Showplace Theater, the Boston Children’s Museum, the Eugene O’Neill Theatre Center, the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C., the Cultural Olympiad at the Center For Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, Georgia, and the prestigious International Festival of Puppet Theatre sponsored by the Jim Henson Foundation at the Joseph Papp Public Theatre in New York. For each production, John creates and performs all of his own puppets, which range from small hand puppets to larger-than-life figures.
