You know what dragons really love? Tacos of course! They love chicken tacos, beef tacos, great big tacos, and teeny tiny tacos.

Discover the dietary delights and dilemmas of dragons in this fun-filled production, the award-winning team of Adam Rubin and Daniel Salmieri have created an unforgettable tale of new friends and the perfect snack. Dragons Love Tacos is full of fiery fun for your entire family!
The #1 New York Times bestselling phenomenon by Adam Rubin, Dragons Love Tacos, will come to life onstage at The Magik Theatre. The production will feature the iconic characters, salsa dancing, high paced antics, and of course, tacos. Families of all ages will enjoy this sizzling story just in time for San Antonio’s very own Taco Fest: Music y Más and FIESTA.
“There’s something strangely universal about Dragons Love Tacos. No matter who you ask, they're excited to see this story come to life onstage,” says Artistic Director Anthony Runfola. “We already have record-breaking ticket sales with a month before the show even opens. Everyone who walks through the door will leave entertained. This is one show you won’t want to miss!”

As a result of Governor Abbott’s recent announcement to reopen live performing arts centers with guidelines, the Magik Theatre is bringing the New York Times #1 bestselling children’s book, Dragons Love Tacos, back on stage for a limited time only beginning June 13, 2020. Written by Adam Rubin, the production features iconic characters, salsa dancing, high paced antics, and of course, tacos. The production will welcome back audiences beginning June 13, officially closing out the season on June 21, 2020.


Dragons Love Tacos debuted at Magik this spring, originally scheduled from March 6 through April 11, 2020, but was postponed due to Stay-At-Home restrictions. 


“Simple joys like enjoying a show can be especially meaningful right now - Magik has carefully considered how we can provide quality family entertainment for our audiences while still practicing social distancing,” said CEO Frank Villani. “As a non-profit in service of San Antonio’s youth and families, The Magik Theatre has been monitoring our community’s situation regarding COVID-19 closely and will continue to follow city and state guidelines for health and safety.”



Magik’s 2019 - 2020 season is sponsored by H-E-B, with Accessibility performances sponsored by University Health System. For more information, visit  MagikTheatre.org.

As the city reopens phase three of the Governor’s plan, which includes performing arts centers operating at fifty percent capacity with safety guidelines in place, The Magik Theatre will open its doors again with just a third of capacity using additional safety policies. These include administering a health and safety questionnaire for staff and actors, temperature checks before entering the building and requiring the use of face masks for patrons 2 years and older to keep guests and staff safe. Seating for patrons will be scaled back to allow for social distancing, special protocols for merchandise and concession sales will also be in place. The theatre will be cleaned by a third-party professional cleaning company after every performance. The theatre holds 579 seats and it will limit capacity to under 200 patrons. 


Patrons are being asked to pre-order their tickets so that their seat location can be assigned by staff members to ensure social distancing is maintained between groups.
