The show is recommended for children 7 and older and their families. A Glow-In-The-Dark Dinosaur Adventure is sponsored by Popeyes.
A Glow-In-The-Dark Dinosaur Adventure tells the story of Professor Henslow, a magical scientist who builds a living dinosaur from scratch. After teaching the dinosaur to walk, the scientist realizes that his newest creation is extremely life-like—predatory instincts and all! In order to save his life and the life of others, Professor Henslow sets upon the task of creating a heart for the dinosaur so that it may learn compassion. His plan works, and the Professor and dinosaur form a loving bond. To tell the story, creators Corbin Popp and Ian Carney have developed an array of creatures and characters , using flexible electroluminescent wire, that are manipulated by their hands and bodies in a blackout setting. At the end of the show audience members are invited to stay for a peek at how the creatures are brought to life, and ask their most curious questions.
Bring the family, join the fun, and see how love takes this glowing dinosaur on a most special journey. For more information and video clips you can go to www.angelinaarts.org. The Temple Theater is located on the Angelina College campus in Lufkin. Tenth Anniversary Season Sponsor is Temple-Inland.
