Dinosaur Petting Zoo

To celebrate Earth Day, the Center for the Arts at Virginia Tech and theInstitute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology are bringing area children and their families two unique opportunities to learn about the prehistoric creatures that roamed the landscape millions of years ago. On Sunday, April 21, a dinosaur scavenger hunt will be held on the Virginia Tech campus, culminating with the “Dinosaur Petting Zoo,” an interactive performance featuring an amazing selection of dinosaurs. All activities are free and open to the public. At 3 p.m., Henderson Lawn, located on the corner of Main Street and College Avenue on the Virginia Tech campus, will be transformed into a dinosaur playground, where a cast of dinosaurs take audience members on an interactive, prehistoric journey. Australian physical and visual theatre company Erth’s “Dinosaur Petting Zoo” features a large-scale cast of dinosaur puppets brought to life by sophisticated design and theatrical presentation and puppet mastery. Click here to read more.
