Walking With Dinosaurs
Following 68 million years of extinction, dinosaurs once again roam the earth in an extraordinary new theatrical production, Walking With Dinosaurs - The Live Experience, which is based on the Emmy AwardÃÂ® winning BBC Series and is currently on a 2 year arena tour of North America. Staged by Broadway director Scott Faris with beyond cinematic realism, Walking With Dinosaurs shows how carnivorous dinosaurs evolved to walk on two legs, and how the herbivores fended off their more agile predators.
A team of over 50 craftsmen worked in a space big enough to house a 747 for over one year to bring the cast of fifteen dinosaurs to life. Audiences of all ages have been amazed and spellbound as they experience the dinosaurs, who are as fascinating and terrifying on stage as they were in real life. This is a show that could only fit in large arenas - as the creatures are so absolutely immense in size. It is the closest that audiences will ever get to experiencing the time when dinosaurs ruled the earth. The show is brought to North America by Immersion Edutainment, led by Executive Director Bruce Mactaggart.
An exhilarating arena show, Walking With Dinosaurs - The Live Experience uses high-tech, state-of-the-art animatronics to present15 life size dinosaurs (up to 45 feet tall) such as the Tyrannosaurus Rex and Stegosaurus in a highly theatrical setting with a paleontologist narrating, who is our guide for the evening. The dinosaurs are designed and built by a team of artists headed by Sonny Tilders who worked with Jim Henson's Creature Workshop on such films as The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Star Wars: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
The tour will is now playing Philadelphia's Wachovia Complex from August 15th -19th and will then play Columbus, Ohio; Greenville (SC), Washington DC, Norfolk, East Rutherford, Winston-Salem, Nashville, Dallas and arrives in the New York area at the Continental Airlines Arena in New Jersey from October 3rd - 7th.
