Dragon Eggs

To our wonderful community.

Theater artists have always embraced the impermanence of things. Live performance can create amazing, magical moments that hover in the air for seconds, minutes, or even (if we’re lucky) two hours of time. But any live performance is a temporary thing… Whether magical, miserable, or anywhere in between, eventually the lights must come down. The curtain must close.

That time has come for Dragon Theater. Since our founding in 1998 we have weathered difficulties, location moves, changes in administration, even a worldwide pandemic. We have survived where other small theaters have not. And for that we are grateful.But the past two years has created a perfect storm of difficulty for us.

Despite a broad base of talented artists working with us, and generous donors who helped us squeeze through tight times, there have simply been too many unpleasant surprises. Too many unforeseen and/or rising expenses. Grants which, while welcome, simply arrived too late to help.And so we have made the difficult decision to permanently close the business that is Dragon Productions Theater Company.

While this ending may temporarily cause a few tears, a sense of regret, we hope that over time we will all remember the Dragon fondly for the years of entertainment, adventure, tears and joy.

 
 

Theatre can communicate emotion, evoke great feelings, and provide entertaining experiences. We know that theatre can also inspire change; can stir people to engage in movements and ideas larger than themselves; can be a catalyst for building the society that we aspire to exist within. Guided by the slogan, “Incubate, Educate, Innovate, Promote” our work aims to bring people together in the most unlikely of places.
