The kids, fantastic,

their dinosaurs great.

The kids, 12-18, are so skilled and entertaining.


And the dinosaurs, HA!

I couldn't stop laughing, along with them.

So close,
and with kids in the audience
sitting on the floor, ringside.

Moving as one like an octopus.

Though you won't see the dinosaurs, so funny,
in their three minute preview video, you'll see a lot,
so you'll have to go to the show to see the dinosaurs,
such a tease. See a video of the show, their
summer schedule and get tickets HERE
If you get a chance to see it, go!
Take kids. It has my highest
recommendation. -Bruce
