Here There Be Dragons

Here There Be Dragons is an all-new D&D-themed musical coming this summer. The show description reads:

The night before their college graduation, a tight-knit group of Dungeons and Dragons players embark on their final quest. They must contend with their anxieties, fears, and obstacles, manifested as fantasy monsters and locales, to discover what their futures may hold. This musical quest will take audiences on a journey through the trepidation and excitement of growing up, holding on to what’s dear, and moving forward in life without our “swords”.

Show Writer Chase O’Neil mentioned in a press release that:

In college I met my best friends, playing seemingly endless sessions of the 3.5 edition of Dungeons & Dragons. We still play together to this day. Theo and I wrote this show because of the impact our friends from college, and even high school, had on both of us. This show is about the strength it takes to choose one’s friends and the struggles that must be overcome to make lasting connections. We’re thrilled to share this story, as the enduring nature of friendship is something we herald as essential to life. There’s a world to explore, best have your party by your side to face it. Now, roll for initiative!

This show sounds exciting and interesting as well. The idea of doing a musical based on a TTRPG like D&D is awesome. What is going to be interesting is how the game will be adapted for the show. But no matter how the game gets adapted, this show will be awesome to see.

Here There Be Dragons will be running from Thursday, June 16th through Sunday, July 17th at the Player’s Theatre in New York. Tickets are on sale right now for the show. Showtimes are:

  • Thursday: 7 PM
  • Friday: 7 PM
