The Reluctant Dragon

May 13, 2018 | 3:00 PM

Mid-Michigan Children’s Museum and Saginaw Choral Society are partnering to present The Reluctant Dragon for a special Mother’s Day event held in the Children’s Museum galleries at 315 W. Genesee Avenue, Saginaw, on Sunday, May 13 at 3:00 p.m.

The Reluctant Dragon is the musical adaptation of Kenneth Grahame’s fable of the same name. It tells the story of a boy and a poetic dragon who meet and develop an unconventional friendship.

The show features Josh Stubor, son of David and Elizabeth Stubor (Saginaw Township). Josh is a 7th grade student at White Pine Middle School, where he is a music student of Betty Mayer, who is also the show’s accompanist.

Tickets are $5 each, or $20 for families of 5 or more. Moms get in FREE! Advance tickets are available by visiting Mid-Michigan Children’s Museum. Tickets are available at the door as well.

Jeremiah Kraniak, SCS Artistic Director, says, “Kids will love this work. It is charming and entertaining, and a good lesson for us all. We will open by introducing the audience to the main characters and explaining how this musical fable is put together. We will explain a few of the important musical terms, like melody and harmony, or ‘aria,’ which means solo song, and then we will present the 35-minute show. At the conclusion of the concert, families are invited to stay for an hour of private play.”
