Vicious velociraptors, adorable baby dinosaurs and a living, breathing Tyrannosaurus Rex will take the stage at Hackensack’s HACPAC for 3 performances starting Tuesday, December 26 at 2pm and Wednesday, December 27 at 11am and 2pm. Dinosaurs Dynamite!, a new family musical presented by Field Station: Dinosaurs, will take children back in time and around the world for an unforgettable adventure hosted by the Dinosaur Troubadour, Kira Redzinak, and featuring the puppetry of Chris Palmieri, the star of Universal Kids’ Sprout House, and most recently the off-Broadway run of Disney’s Winnie the Pooh as Tigger. The Field Station’s singing paleontologists will introduce New Jersey families to their most surprising next-door neighbors – the Dinosaurs! The highlight of the show is a special appearance by the FieldStation’s famous Mighty T-Rex, a realistic, 15-foot interactive puppet. Then HACPAC will be transformed into a mesmerizing glow-in-the-dark puppet theater where the audience will take flight with the dinosaur daredevil – the bravest dinosaur of all!
Written by Field Station: Dinosaurs’ founder and New Jersey stage veteran Guy Gsell, Dinosaurs Dynamite! is an entertaining educational show with just the perfect mix of science, silly and scary. Kids will dance at the Dinosaur Dance Party and learn how dinosaurs are named as they become contestants in a new game show for kids – Name That Dinosaur!
Running time is 75 minutes with one 20-minute intermission.
Performance Dates: December 26 at 2:00 pm and December 27 at 11:00 am and 2:00pm.
