Dragon of DoomKapitall Kids Theatre once again brings to life a little known story through the magic of theatre. Writer George Harach explains that this is an old Lebanese tale his father used to tell him when he was a little boy. It’s a tale about family, and the importance of working together as a team.

Once upon a time, in the land of Lebanon, lived a poor old man and his four children (Nas, Mia, Tommy, and Jazz). Struggling to provide for his for kids he sends them out to learn to fend for themselves. They venture out into the world in search of a new skill or trade and along the way they meet a strange old man who is willing to help them. But when they return home to their father he is not happy with the skills his children have gained.

Meanwhile in the palace a terrifying dragon kidnaps the princess!! She is held hostage in his lair and forced to listen to Justin Beiber… Can the new skills the children have gained help save the princess or will she be doomed forever???
