Preview: Zog at Newcastle Tyne Theatre




Beloved children's book Zog brought to life at Tyne Theatre and Opera House



Newcastle Tyne Theatre & Opera House

Monday 20th – Wednesday 22nd June 2023


Freckle Productions in association with Rose Theatre presents ZOG, a wonderful stage performance based on the book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, coming to the Tyne Theatre and Opera House in 2023.

Large in size and keen in nature, Zog is eager to win a golden star at Madam Dragon’s school, where dragons learn all the things that dragons need to know.  Zog tries so very hard, perhaps too hard, and he bumps, burns and roars his way through years one, two and three.  Luckily, the plucky Princess Pearl patches him up ready to face his biggest challenge yet…a duel with knight, Sir Gadabout the Great!

The smash-hit stage adaptation from Freckle Productions (the team behind Zog and the Flying Doctors and Stick Man) is back and promises to be bigger, brighter and more roar-some than ever before! With lively songs from Joe Stilgoe and directed by Emma Kilbey, Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s much-loved Zog is a magical production for all ages.

★★★★ ‘A rip-roaring, song-filled fun-fest. My three-year-old sat utterly rapt through the entire performance’ South Wales Echo

★★★★★ ‘A bright colourful musical to capture the magic of theatre’ What’s Good to Do

★★★★ ‘Zog and its five-strong cast are a delight. A roaring success!’ Reviewsphere

Theatre Director Jo Johnson said: We have so many wonderful family shows coming to our Theatre, including many based on other Julia Donaldson books, like Room on the Broom. Children love to see their favourite books come to life on the stage and we can’t wait to welcome audiences for this great production of Zog.”
