What is Jurassic Magic you ask? It’s a show about Dinosaurs that uses magic in a fun way to entertain and educate young children. This was the very first themed show I ever created back almost 20 years ago. I retired the show a while back because the enthusiasm about dinosaurs had vanished from the public. But now with the new Jurassic World movie and other projects about dinosaurs on the horizon, I thought it was a good time to bring the show back.
But I did more than bring it back. I updated the show. I added some routines and removed some things. The original show was a 35 minute program. This new version is 45 minutes and includes lots of magic, several really cool dinosaur puppets and just the right amount of fun and education to please the pre-k crowd.
The puppets include a Tri-Ceratops, a baby T-Rex who looks just like the image on the poster above, and a Stegasauras, which you can see to the left. The puppets are fun and they lead up to a magic trick. I use them primarily to teach the kids different things about the dinosaurs.
I have one new routine that is going to go into the show, but I’ve not finished building it yet. It’s a ‘stretching’ dinosaur routine where a picture of an Apatosaurus changes into a Diplodicus Dinosaur. It’s a fun way to show the audience the difference in the size of the dinos.
I still have a few spots left for the Jurassic Magic Show, so let me know if you’d like to have it for your pre-k audiences.
