Big things are coming to the Verizon Center this July, and I mean that both figuratively and literally. We’re talking two-and-a-half ton, 46-foot wing-spanned, soaring-around-the-arena, fire-breathing big. And I have a feeling many a kid’s mind will be blown.
It’s the How to Train Your Dragon Live Spectacular. Yes, the live version of the hit movie that transports kids to the mythical world of Dragons and Vikings. This in-person production comes from DreamWorks Animation and Global Creatures, the masterminds behind the “Walking with Dinosaurs” phenomenon that has wowed audiences around the world. Here’s an official description of the show:
How to Train Your Dragon Live Spectacular breaks every rule of theatrical entertainment to fully immerse audiences into the show in ways that have not been attempted before. Barely contained within the arena, How to Train Your Dragon Live Spectacular utilizes the full venue, maximizing every dimension of the performance space to transport audiences into a mythical world of fire-breathing dragons who soar overhead at great speeds. The state-of-the-art animatronic technology and large-scale cinematic projections interact seamlessly with the live actors, who bring DreamWorks Animation’s heart-warming story to life through theatrical storytelling, martial arts and acrobatics.
