TEANECK, N.J. — An adventure musical for families is being presented by Black Box Studios in Teaneck.
“The Tale of the Dragon's Tail Book,” features music, lyrics and direction by Josh Kammerman, based on a story developed by the Apple Tree Players, featuring Katelyn Lauria, Richard Lurie, Vikki Martin, Andrew Martinelli and Esti Mellul.
The story is about a prince and princess who meet and fall in love at first sight, but right as they are about to plan their nuptials, two evil and very incompetent wizards cast a spell on the princess that convinces her the only way she can marry the prince is if he brings her the tail of a ferocious dragon.
Follow the prince as he embarks on a wild journey to break the spell, and meets along the way lots of colorful characters, including a funny map seller, an ogre, a mysterious old lady, a giant and eventually the dragon with the tail that can break the spell.
The show runs from Jan. 31-Feb. 21 at the Black Box Performing Arts Center, Teaneck's new culture hub.
