Dinosaur Train

JIM HENSON’S DINOSAUR TRAIN LIVE: BUDDY’S BIG ADVENTURE, embraces and celebrates the fascination that preschoolers have with both dinosaurs and trains. The series encourages basic scientific thinking skills as the audience learns about life science, natural history and paleontology.

Come join Buddy, Tiny, Don and all of their friends and family in this fun-filled, interactive and immersive live trip back in time to an age when dinosaurs roamed the earth….and rode in trains! Jim Henson’s Dinosaur Train Live: Buddy’s Big Adventure

Little Buddy is a proud Tyrannosaurus Rex living happily in the Pteranodon family nest. But, what exactly makes Buddy a part of this family, and just what will happen when he gets bigger and can’t fit in the nest anymore? Buddy wants to know, so the Pteranodons decide to hop aboard the one and only Dinosaur Train and set off on an adventure across the Mesozoic to take Buddy to see his good friend King Cryolophosaurus. King’s giving a big concert in Troodon Town and will be a great pal for Buddy to talk to and figure it all out. But — oh no !— King is missing! Will Buddy and the gang be able to find him in time for his concert? Just why is King hiding anyway? And will Buddy discover what makes him special and such an important part of the Pteranodon family?  Lets all take a ride on the Dinosaur Train to find out, together!

Jim Henson’s Dinosaur Train Live: Buddy’s Big Adventure will bring the beloved stars of the hit PBS series to your hometown for the first time. From giant King to teeny Tiny, all of our friends will be brought to life in an exciting, original, musical story created just for the stage where our audience is always a part of the action. Utilizing lush projected backgrounds and vistas, magical special effects that fill the theatre, a full sized replica of the Dinosaur Train, unique hybrid puppeteered costume characters and an engaging live host, our dinosaur pals and their adventures will truly seem larger than life.
