Darwin the Dinosaur
This remarkable visual experience for all ages incorporates life-sized puppets, dance, an adventure story, and high-tech black light and electroluminescent effects. “Darwin” is like nothing you have ever experienced before!

The story begins with Professor Henslow, a famous scientist with magic powers who is in the process of bringing to life his newest creation and dinosaur friend, Darwin. The story tells of Darwin’s experiences as he explores his new world, encountering many different types of creatures—Verla, the gangly ostrich; Peche, the beautiful fish; and Brutus, the menacing red dinosaur. In the end when Brutus threatens Professor Henslow, Darwin is forced to make a decision. A decision that will alter his life forever, an ultimately, lead him to discover the true meaning of love.
