Epico the Dragon Show

Category: Show

Inside every child is a hero, awaiting the call to action to pull them from the ordinary world and into the Heroes Journey. Played in the round for thirty minutes, from a 10m square arena, three times daily, for audiences of up to a thousand people per show. Epico the dragon parts the mists of time, inviting the audience to the Land of Adventure for non-stop family fun!

Housewives favourite Sir Aurelious Jones and his goblin servant, whip the crowd into a frenzy. A Hero chosen from the audience must master three tests to win the Silver Breastplate, before embarking on a quest to find and tame the beast. In the Dragon’s Lair, our Hero must face their fear to rescue Sir Aurelious from certain death! 

The show puts children in “the position of expert,” in order to teach Aurelious the importance and values of friendship. Having saved both Aurelious’s life and his friendship with Epico, the child is knighted before leaving the Heroic World transformed.

” Epico the Dragon is a rare gem of a street theatre show, hugely accessible to all ages great fun and excellently performed. And the company are an absolute pleasure to work with and very professional, book them now before the last dragon is extinguished. ” 

Mikey Martins – Artistic Director

“Phenomenal and Superb are just two of many superlatives that you can use when you describe Epico the Dragon and working with Creature Encounter at your events!  From two extremely professional guys with imagination and drive come two outstanding characters; Epico the Dragon and Sir Aurelious Jones, the former who captivated children into believing that Dragon’s really do exist and the later who captured the hearts of many of the ladies present!  A ‘tour de force’ in quality entertainment that made me laugh until tears were rolling down my cheeks!  A truly wonderful and amazing act, that I would recommend without reservation.”
