“The Near-Sighted Knight and the Far-Sighted Dragon”

Region: Litchfield Hills Location: Thomaston Opera House
158 Main St.
Thomaston, CT 06787 Date: February 26-27, Mar. 5 Time: 1 & 4 p.m. Description: In this modern fairy tale about two opposing points of view, an unemploued young knight-errant sets out to become a hero so he can get a job. Looking for monsters, he shortsightedly charges everything in sight, including a career-minded princess and a homeless-philosopher dragon. Misunderstandings are patched up over chocolate milk and the three march off to rescue the King, imprisoned by a wicked Duchess, who is now plotting to marry her worthless son to the princess. All are captured but escape only after learning to see on another’s point of view. The knight gets a job, the dragon a home, and the princess a careet. Admission: $7.
