DINO-LIGHT to Play Grand 1894 Opera House, 3/27
The Grand 1894 Opera House's Serious Fun Children's Series presents The Kid's Entertainment's production of "Dino-Light" Thursday, March 27 at 10am. Created, choreographed and directed by Ian Camey and Corbin Popp, the show displays a menagerie of illuminated figures from squiggles of thin neon piping set against a dark stage.
Dino (formally known as Darwin) is a good-natured dinosaur assembled and nurtured by a lonely scientist. Wanting to explore the outside world, Dino sets out to experience life for himself. During his journey he escapes a hungry Tyrannosaurus, has a deepwater swim with the fishes, and meets a friendly pair of longneck creatures. Overcome with loneliness, the scientist goes looking for him and is caught up in the excitement and danger.
Experience a world of fantasy that combines ancient, wordless storytelling with modern technology and music. Broadwayworld.com writes: "An eye-popping display of storytelling that's like nothing else you've ever seen." Not only is it a visual feast for the eyes, the story itself teaches a lesson of peace, love and understanding.
