Following Governor Abbott’s recent announcement to reopen live performing arts centers, The Magik Theatre is bringing the New York Times #1 bestselling children’s book, Dragons Love Tacos, back on stage for a limited time.
Based on Adam Rubin’s bestselling children’s book and adapted by Ernie Nolan, Dragons Love Tacos opens Saturday, June 13, at the Magik Theatre, located in Hemisfair. Directed by Michelle Pietri, this is the San Antonio premiere.
While a boy and his dog are watching television, they find out what kinds of tacos to serve dragons, but they also learn that the creatures can’t stand spicy salsa, much to their chagrin. Dragons Love Tacos stars Jonathan Tucker (boy), Ginger Gamble Martel (Leroy), Martin Vidal (Man in Suit), Rosa Gardner (Yellow Dragon), Aaron Kenigsberg (White Dragon), Venny Mortimer (Red Dragon) and Randee Nelson (Blue Dragon).
“Simple joys like enjoying a show can be especially meaningful right now — Magik has carefully considered how we can provide quality family entertainment for our audiences while still practicing social distancing,” said CEO Frank Villani. “As a non-profit in service of San Antonio’s youth and families, The Magik Theatre has been monitoring our community’s situation regarding COVID-19 closely and will continue to follow city and state guidelines for health and safety.”
