WHAT: The Dinosaur Show presented by Paul Mesner Puppets at Center for Puppetry Arts
Two daring paleontologists set out to recover bones deep in a desert canyon. Watch as they turn back the clock to the Precambrian era to discover how dinosaurs came to rule the earth. Paul Mesner Puppets, of Kansas City, MO, digs into the past to bring the dinosaurs to life, using hand, rod, shadow and body puppets in this high-energy prehistoric tale. The play explains scientific facts of how dinosaurs became extinct and includes a few whimsical and improbable theories. No bones about it – The Dinosaur Show will tickle your funny-fossil and stimulate your imagination!
Paul Mesner Puppets has previously presented such popular shows as Martha Speaks, True Story of the 3 Little Pigs by A. Wolf, and The Stinky Cheese Man. For more information about the company, visit www.paulmesnerpuppets.org.
