First look / world premiere stage adaptation of Julia Donaldson’s Zogg

Production images have been released of the world premiere stage adaptation of Zog, which opens at the Rose Theatre Kingston later this month.

Based on the acclaimed children’s book by Julia Donaldson with illustrations by Axel Scheffler, Zog is adapted and directed by Mike Shepherd (founder and Artistic Director of Kneehigh) with an original folk score by Johnny Flynn (currently starring alongside Kit Harington in the West End production of True West).

The cast features Elliot MacKenzie as Zog, Emily Benjamin (Bat Out Of Hell) as Princess Pearl, Robert Ginty (Salome and Coriolanus, Royal Shakespeare Company) as Sir Gadabout the Great and Euan Wilson (Stick Man, UK Tour) as Madame Dragon, with Dixie McDevitt (National Youth Theatre alumni) as Ensemble.
