‘The Tale of the Dragon’s Tail’ at Black Box Performing Arts Center

Black Box Studios proudly presents “The Tale of the Dragon’s Tail,” created and directed by Josh Kammerman, and based on a story developed by the Apple Tree Players. “The Tale of the Dragon’s Tail,” an adventure musical for the kid in all of us, will play eight performances through February 21 at Teaneck’s new culture hub, the Black Box Performing Arts Center, 200 Walraven Dr. (just off Palisade Ave.) in Teaneck. Tickets are $12-15 and are available at BlackBoxNYNJ.com or by calling (201-357-2221).

“It is a blast to see this production coming to life again with a fresh and super talented cast and in a cool, new theater!” shares creator and director Josh Kammerman.

In “The Tale of the Dragon’s Tail,” a prince and princess meet and fall in love at first sight, but right as they are about to plan their nuptials, two evil and very incompetent wizards cast a spell on the princess that convinces her the only way she can marry the prince is if he brings her the tail of a ferocious dragon.

Follow the prince as he embarks on a wild journey to break the spell, and meets along the way lots of colorful characters, including a funny map seller, an ogre, a mysterious old lady, a giant and eventually the dragon with the tail that can break the spell.

An interactive adventure musical full of action, fun and dance for the whole family.

Featuring Katelyn Lauria, Richard Lurie, Vikki Martin, Andrew Martinelli and Esti Mellul.
