The next play to grace Dallas Children Theater’s stage will be an ode to dragons and tacos that starts Jan. 29 and runs until Feb. 20.

Dragons Love Tacos is a play based on a children’s book series written by Adam Rubin and illustrated by Daniel Salmieri. The author of 10 other children’s books, Rubin is also Director of Puzzles and Games for the website, Art of Play.

The play is about a boy and his dog who, while watching TV, find out dragons really love tacos. Chicken tacos, beef tacos, big, tiny, you name it. The only thing to avoid when it comes to tacos, however, is spicy salsa. It’s filled with dance sequences and funny situations sure to keep kids entertained.

The stage adaptation is written by Ernie Nolan, a director and playwright at Nashville Children’s Theater, and directed by Nancy Schaeffer of Dallas Children’s Theater.

The suggested age for the play is four and older. Tickets are $17 for seniors, $19 for children and $21 for adults.
