Dinosaurs Forever!

As long as children dream BIG dreams, dinosaurs will be part of their fantasy lives. Combining a child’s fascination for dinosaurs with giant dinosaur puppets and catchy dinosaur tunes is what DinoRock Productions loves to do. Dinosaurs Forever! is a dinosaur musical revue.

The puppet characters perform for and with the children:

  • Hand puppet Danny Diplodocus, hatches out of his egg onstage.
  • Stella Stegosaurus, a body puppet 6 feet high and 10 feet long, is the
    Gracie Allen of the Jurassic Period.
  • Dinah Diplodocus, a 14’ tall long neck, will teach everyone to do the
    Sauropod Swing.
  • Donna the Pteranodon, a rod puppet with a 12’ wing span, will want us all to fly.
  • Who wants to see a dinosaur show without a T.rex in it? No one. So Big Bad Baby Rex (still in his egg) will make a real pest of himself, wanting to be fed.
  • The Hadrosaur from Hackensack, all decked out in a leather jacket will demonstrate real dinosaur rock.
  • And Tootsie the tap dancing Triceratops will shuffle off to Buffalo dinosaur style.

Come sing along, stomp around and giggle often with the dinosaurs of DinoRock Productions as we cheer Dinosaurs Forever!

Award winning songs, lovable characters, audience participation, all the hallmarks of DinoRock Productions, Inc. a nationally recognized children’s theatre company, come together in the fossil fantasy musical revue Dinosaurs Forever!, featuring beautiful hand, rod and body puppets who sing and dance onstage and out in the audience. Original Grammy® nominated songs invite the children to join in and celebrate nature’s own monsters, Dinosaurs!.

“Hey DinoRockers, Just a note to say we can’t wait to have you back. I have never seen elementary students so rapt with attention, especially in our 1,800 seat arena house. Teachers and students alike emerged from the theatre smiling, laughing, thrilled with new knowledge, and significantly, asking to return.” —David Zoffoli, Producing Director for Young Audiences, North Shore Music Theatre, Beverly, MA.
