Dinosaurs Invade the Hettenhausen Center on March 8

VIP Child’s Ticket Includes Backstage Meet-and-Greet

Lebanon, Ill. — Take a tour through prehistoric Australia with when Erth’s “Dinosaur Zoo Live” invades McKendree University’s Hettenhausen Center for the Arts on Saturday, March 8. From cute baby dinos to teeth-gnashing giants, the extraordinarily lifelike creatures of Dinosaur Zoo capture the imagination of children ages five and up.

Tickets are $15 adults, $12 seniors, and $5 children or students with ID. While the 3 p.m. show is sold out, a second show has been added at 6 p.m. A $25 VIP children’s ticket is available for the 6 p.m. show only. It includes a 5 p.m. pre-show meet-and-greet with the dinosaurs and their handlers, preferred seating close to the action, and an official Dinosaur Zoo hat.

Australia-based Erth develops its large-scale puppets in consultation with paleontologists, based on current science and interpretations of fossil evidence. Using sophisticated design and electronics, skilled performers and puppeteers bring the dinosaurs, prehistoric mammals and insects seemingly to life.

For tickets or more information, call the Hett box office during weekday business hours at (618) 537-6863 or visit www.theHett.com.
