Synopsis

MY PET DRAGON is an insidiously poppy musical using a teenage girl adopting a dragon as an allegory for opiate addiction. The fantastical world in which it takes place is no different from ours, other than the obvious and necessary addition of dragons. Maggie (book writer/lyricist) uses her semi-autobiographical experience with addiction to craft the story with Joshua (composer) of Georgia and the journey she embarks on to tame her dragon.

This musical was initially developed at the NYU Tisch Graduate Musical Theater Writing Program.
