Pip-pip the dragon.

Columbia, MD – All dragons possess four magical gifts, but once upon a time, there was a very young dragon named Pip-Pip who was born with a fifth. Find out how Pip-Pip discovers and shares her gifts through the stage production of “PIP-PIP THE DRAGON: A Story of Wishes” at Howard Community College (HCC) June 6–16, 2019.

In this 90-minute play, audience members will journey into Pip-Pip’s tale of true friendship, spirited courage, magical power, and wishes-come-true, as told by enchanted creatures great and small. This production of “PIP-PIP THE DRAGON: A Story of Wishes” is a marvelous, family-friendly, not-to-be-missed world premiere of unique and wonderful original work featuring magical storytelling, music, and movement created by talented actors and creatives.

The play will take place in the Studio Theatre, located within the college’s Horowitz Visual and Performing Arts Center (HVPA), and is presented by HCC’s Arts Collective and the Howard County Poetry and Literature Society (HoCoPoLitSo). Performances are recommended for ages six and up.
