Dinosaurs are roaring their way to STAPLES Center this September for a limited seven-performance show! WALKING WITH DINOSAURS THE ARENA SPECTACULAR will perform in Los Angeles from Thursday, September 11 to Sunday, September 14, 2014.
WALKING WITH DINOSAURS THE ARENA SPECTACULAR is a production that features the dinosaurs’ evolution with cinematic realism based on the award-winning BBC Television Series. The history of the world and the time period dinosaurs roamed the Earth is unraveled with scenes showing interactions between dinosaurs and the explosive events leading up to the impact of the massive comet that concluded with the extinction of dinosaurs.
It showcases ten species represented from the 200 million year reign of the dinosaurs including the Tyrannosaurus Rex, Plateosaurus, and Liliensternus from the Triassic period, the Stegosaurus and Allosaurus from the Jurassic period, as well as the Torosaurus and Utahraptor from the Cretaceous period. The largest dinosaur of this production includes the Brachiosaurus spanning 36 feet tall and 56 feet from nose to tail.
Director Scott Faris describes, “We take the audience on a journey back in time and show them how the dinosaurs might have actually looked in their prime – huge, sometimes frightening, sometimes comical monsters – that fought for survival everyday of their lives. Our dinosaurs move exactly like they are real – with all the roars, snorts and excitement that go with it. The realism is mind-blowing!”
The show is back this year with an updated production featuring changes to the dinosaurs based on the most current scientific research. The entire production took a group of fifty engineers, fabricators, skin makers, artists, painters, and animatronic experts a whole year to finish. In the past several years, this worldwide tour has been witnessed by over 8 million people in 243 cities. WALKING WITH DINOSAURS will arrive back in the United States for the first time since its initial sold-out tour in 2007.
The production has been lauded by many critics during its last North American tour (2007-2010) and has won various awards including the THEA Award for Outstanding Achievement in Touring Event, the Billboard Touring Award for Creative Content, and the Pollstar Concert Industry Award for Most Creative Stage Production.
