The Preston High School fall production this year is “Shrek,” the musical. The thing about doing a play like Shrek is you need a dragon.

“It’s pretty intense. Normally only really big places use a dragon,” director Kimberly Hobbs said. “We checked around and it would cost as much as $3,000 to rent a dragon robot.”

So Hobbs went to Eric Allred, the electronics teacher at the high school and the advisor of the robotics club.

“They wanted a dragon, but it was already rented out. So they asked if we could make one,” Allred said. “It’s been a lot fun. The students and those who have seen it have a great deal of enthusiasm for the project.”
