Sam and Alice have mail-ordered a dragon. The sleepy town of Midilahnoo Weir will never be the same again.
The school-holidays have come around again. Sam and Alice are being packed off to a town 574km, 54 Minties and five wee-stops away from civilisation. Welcome to Midilahnoo Weir, population 104.
It’s promising to be the most boring summer ever, so Sam and Alice decide to pool their pocket money and mail-order themselves a little bit of excitement.
Now it’s Midilahnoo Weir: Population 104, plus one dragon.
Weir Be Dragons! is a comic romp for kids aged 7-12.
WATCH OUT!! The first three rows will be EATEN!
Produced with the assistance of Yarra Ranges Council and Montrose Town Centre, Weir Be Dragons! starred artists from the Deaf and Hearing communities. Weir Be Dragons! was bilingual, using Australian Sign Language and spoken English, as well as puppetry and animation, to create a show which both Deaf and Hearing children could enjoy together.
