Walking with Dinosaurs The Arena Spectacular

Gayle Anderson was live in Anaheim for the 'Walking With Dinosaurs  The Arena Spectacular', which returns to Southern California for a limited eight-performance engagement at the Honda Center in Anaheim starting today through Sunday, September 7th. 'Walking with Dinosaurs' will then move to STAPLES Center for a limited eight-performance engagement from Thursday, September 11th through Sunday, September 15th.

Based on the award-winning BBC Television Series, 'Walking with Dinosaurs' features life-size re-creations of dinosaurs and depicts their evolution with almost cinematic realism. The history of the world is played out with the splitting of the earth’s continents, and the transition from the arid desert of the Triassic period is given over to the lush green prairies and forces of the later Jurassic. Oceans form, volcanoes erupt, a forest catches fire -- all leading to the impact of the massive comet, which struck the earth, and forced the extinction of the dinosaurs. This updated production will showcase changes to the dinosaurs based on the latest scientific research including the likely feathering of some species.

Ten species are represented from the entire 200 million year reign of the dinosaurs. The show includes the Tyrannosaurus Rex, the terror of the ancient terrain, as well as the Plateosaurus and Liliensternus from the Triassic period, the Stegosaurus and Allosaurus from the Jurassic period and Torosaurus and Utahraptor from the awesome Cretaceous period.  The largest of them, the Brachiosaurus is 36 feet tall, and 56 feet from nose to tail.  It took a team of 50 – including engineers, fabricators, skin makers, artists and painters, and animatronic experts – a year to build the production.
