ARVADA, CO – Kids and families beware! Dinosaurs will roam once more when the touring theatrical production of "Lava and Bones" comes to the Arvada Center (6901 Wadsworth Boulevard) on Sunday, March 5. Performances will take place in the mainstage theater at 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.
The Canadian performance group, Mortal Coil, uses puppetry, stilt dance and song to bring geologic events to life in this visually stunning production. When two characters travel back in time in search of a dinosaur, they discover an amazing prehistoric world. Along the way, witness an exciting volcano dance on stilts and roller-blading "rocky" players giving tectonic body checks. Look out for earthquakes and the fearsome Tyrannosaurus Rex—a 14-foot stilted beast with teeth to match—in the fun and artistically clever "Lava and Bones."
Tickets for "Lava and Bones" cost $10 for children and $12 for adults. They are available by calling the Arvada Center Box Office at (720) 898-7200. Family Theater Arts Day packages, featuring a conversation with the actors and a hands-on workshop, are also available for an additional cost.
