Jim Henson’s Dinosaur Train: Live! Buddy’s Big Adventure
Start Date: 11/12/2013Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Date: 11/12/2013End Time: 9:00 PM
Event Description
In this incredible live experience, kids will be transported on a journey back to the Mesozoic when dinosaurs roamed the earth....and rode in trains! As only The Jim Henson Company can do, the popular PBS Kids television show will be brought to life through spectacular interactive multi-media, music and puppetry.

Buddy, Tiny, Shiny, Don, giant Laura, teeny Tiny, and all of their friends and family will all be there in this exciting, original, musical story created just for the stage where our audience is always a part of the show. We join our Pteranodon family on a new adventure, with the Conductor along for the ride to always keeps things on track, and a “live” human Paleontologist character to check in along the way.

Set with lush animation styled vegetation, large rear projection video screens creating motion driven backgrounds and a full sized replica of the Dinosaur Train, and using combinations of hybrid walk-around/puppeteered costume characters, forced perspective techniques for our larger dinosaur friends, and several additional types of puppetry (i.e. shadow, mech, and blacklight) for special effects, our super stars and their adventures will truly seem larger than life.

Through interactivity, music and laughter DINOSAUR TRAIN LIVE! will have kids up and dancing in the aisles!
