A famous scientist with magic powers brings a friendly dinosaur to life. When the dinosaur wanders away from home, he discovers a wonderful world full of creatures that light up the darkness and help him find the true meaning of love. This glow-in-the-dark adventure has been praised for its cutting-edge blend of puppetry, technology, and dance by audiences all over the world.
This glow-in-the-dark show is as sweet as it is spectacular, but might be a bit scary for those who are under five.
Ticket holders are invited to a Family Fest in the lobby starting at 1 p.m. featuring interactive displays and activities for patrons of all ages. The Beneski Museum of Natural History along with the Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association Jurassic Road Show host activities including a look through a microscope at the fascinating structure of minerals. (Additionally, the Beneski Museum--located on the nearby grounds of Amherst College--will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. for pre and post-performance visits.) The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art will be on hand with recommendations about dinosaur-themed books along with the Springfield Science Museum with information about Dinosaur Hall. The UMass Science Outreach Club makes an appearance with demonstrations of fiber optics and more!
