RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Get ready to go on a magical journey and meet legends from across the globe in a new show arriving at the Altria Theater next year.

“Dragons and Mythical Beasts” brings the audience on an adventure as performers use giant puppets to bring beasts of myth and legend to life, from familiar unicorns and dragons to creatures you may not know as well, like the mysterious Indrik from Russia or Baku from Japan.
