About the Show: Legendary Glitterus is the last remaining dragon in a world that has plunged into the darkness of heart and spirit. In order to continue her species and save the world, Glitterus summons five Mystics from scattered tribes to find her lost eggs. During the Mystics’ journey to save the baby Glits and defeat the power-hungry Tower Wizard, they laugh, they battle, they funk out with their junk out and learn that they are stronger when they fight united. With psychedelic stoner metal music plucking your ear strings, you will laugh, you will cry, you will slide out of your seats during Glitterus: Dragon Rising. Builds will be focused on weekend workshops focusing on projects. Designers will be strongly encouraged to check-in at rehearsals so that they are familiar with how their designs are actually getting used.
