Taco-Eating Dragon Coming to Cincinnati This Spring

PIP_Dragons Love Tacos promoPlayhouse’s Off the Hill series presents DRAGONS LOVE TACOS
from April 4 through May 17

CINCINNATI – Families are invited on a mouthwatering dragon adventure when Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park stages the beloved children’s book, DRAGONS LOVE TACOS at community centers throughout the region. The show is part of the Playhouse’s Off the Hill series and runs April 4 through May 17.

Based on Adam Rubin’s number-one New York Times bestselling phenomenon, DRAGONS LOVE TACOS will jump off the page in a big way as a boy, Leroy, and his dog throw the taco party of all taco parties one stormy night for their dragon friends. But this taco party comes with fiery consequences when the dragons accidentally eat some spicy salsa: They snort sparks, their ears smoke, and chaos ensues!

Directed for the Playhouse by Dylan Shelton, Artistic Director of Madcap Puppets, this hilarious production will be performed by an ensemble of actors from the Bruce E. Coyle Intern Company and features a colorful set design.

The Playhouse production team has had their hands full with this larger-than-life story. “Working on DRAGONS LOVE TACOS has been boatloads of fun,” says Shelton. “Families will love seeing one of their favorite books come to life. This show expands the world of the book with fabulous surprises and hilarious physical antics.”

The Playhouse’s production will journey all over greater Cincinnati, from Oxford to Lebanon to Covington and many places in between. The family-friendly production is recommended for anyone in the family ages 3 and up.
