May 26 - June 24 The Really BIG Dinosaur Puppet Show
Imagine if the bones and fossils of
ancient dinosaurs could come back to life, what stories they might tell!
No need to imagine any more, as Rainbow Puppet Productions presents
“The Really BIG Dinosaur Show.”
Through original songs and the use of more than 20 giant puppets, the
time of the dinosaurs reappears on stage. There’s an 8-foot-tall
Tyrannosaurus Rex, mama and baby dinosaurs, and another dinosaur that’s
over 16 feet long. (It’s not called the “Really BIG Dinosaur Show” for
nothing.) There will be lots of audience participation.
The dinosaur puppet show was created by the same team that produced
other award-winning Rainbow Productions educational puppet shows such as
“The Amazing Adventures of Chessie the Manatee.” The original script
and music is by David Messick, with puppets created by Frank Lakus of
Tampa, Fla., as well as Virginia artists Laura Huff, Helen Spaetzel,
Christine Frank and Kathie Davis. Technical advice on the T-Rex was
provided by paleontologist Dr. John Horner, best know to the public for
his work as technical consultant to the Steven Spielberg films “Jurassic
Park” and “The Lost World.”
Time: weekends at noon, 1 and 2 p.m.
Cost: VLM members free. Non-members adults $17, children $13 (ages 3-12)
