"St.  George and the Dragon” is presented by Apple Box Theatre

Tech Highlights:

  • In “St. George and the Dragon,” the Red Knight, who has no name and was raised by the fairies, goes on an epic (and funny) adventure with Princess Una and her short friend Big Al. They encounter swordplay, magic, monsters, and yes, a dragon to fight at the end. This is the fifth play Anderson has been commissioned by Apple Box to write. The others include “Midsummer Night’s Dream” in 2015, “Arabian Nights” in 2017, “Beowulf” in 2019, and “Much Ado About Nothing” in 2021.

  • On June 30, Western Oregon University’s outdoor stage will host the world premiere of Apple Box Children’s Theater’s new staging of “St. George and the Dragon” by Maren Bradley Anderson. Both the viewing and participation of the performances are free for kids. The Polk County Cultural Coalition has provided funding to Apple Box Children’s Theater. Through July 2 Monmouth, performances take place at WOU’s Amphitheater (located outside of Rice Auditorium) along Powell, Knox, and Warren streets from 6 to 7:30 p.m. On June 29 at 6 o’clock, there will be a public dress rehearsal. Bring a picnic basket, a folding chair, or a blanket and take in the summer night. Free and open to the public admission.

Apple Box Children’s Theater is a community theater group which produces classic stories with young actors ranging from the age of eight to 15. In 2020, Apple Box Children’s Theater joined in a partnership with both Western Oregon University and Central High School’s Theater CTE program. They are located in Monmouth and are made from Polk County residents. This production of “St. George and the Dragon” is made possible in part by funding from the Polk County Cultural Coalition and fiscal sponsorship of the Humanities Division of Western Oregon University. Donations can be made to ABCT securely via the WOU Foundation Website www.wou.edu/give. Please note in the “Other designation” box that your gift is for “Apple Box Children’s Theater.”
