Union County Community Arts Councils Presents "The Reluctant Dragon!"
Union County Community Arts Council brings amazing talent to Rock Rest Elementary School, Bright Star Touring theatre, performing "The Reluctant Dragon." Bright Star Touring Theatre, is a national professional touring theatre company based in Asheville, North Carolina. They performed the play for our first, second and third grade classes.
Students were very excited to see the play, The Reluctant Dragon." The play was about a young boy name Jack who discovers that a dragon is living in his village! Much to his surprise, this dragon is friendly and loves a good book. Soon, Jack and the dragon become best friends, but not everyone in the village believes a dragon can be friendly. With the help from Sir George, Jack and his new best friend use team work to win the hearts of everyone in the village. Kindness, respect and friendship abound as the quiet village learns to accept everyone who lives there. The students at RRES had a fun and exciting time watching this performance and learned a lot about the importance of teamwork, accepting others and solving problems.
