"Dinosaurs of the Deep" Brings More Prehistoric Magic to the LPCA
Lake Placid, NY: The Lake Placid Center for the Arts (LPCA) will present Erth's Prehistoric Aquarium Adventure on Tuesday and Wednesday, March 3 & 4 at 6:00 PM. Tickets start at $15 and are available by calling the LPCA Box Office at 518.523.2512 or online at www.lakeplacidarts.org.
Following a sold-out show with Dinosaur World Live in January, the LPCA will present a new opportunity to meet some fascinating creatures that lived eons ago. The show explores the unknown ocean depths, unlocking the mystery of the dinosaurs of the deep. Erth's Prehistoric Aquarium Adventure was created in Australia by Erth Visual & Physical, who spent years scouring the seven seas, collecting playful prehistoric marine reptiles for their giant theatrical aquarium. Prehistoric Aquarium is a real adventure taking place at the bottom of the ocean; the audience experience is enriched via immersive techniques that make them feel as though they are sometimes swimming with the creatures in the tank.
Erth's Prehistoric Aquarium Adventure is produced in North America by Red Tail Entertainment and is dedicated to offering entertaining family shows that are based in the real science of paleontology. Children can watch and learn, while interacting with the creatures in a fun, educational and unique presentation. Erth shows use actors, technology, puppets, science and imagination to create an amazing visual experience that connects young audiences to science.
VIP Experience tickets are available for families interested in a meet and greet with a puppeteer and puppet from the show. For $25, VIP ticket holders will receive a piece of merchandise from the show, a snack, a chance to see a puppet up close before the show begins and more – additional details about VIP tickets can be found at www.lakeplacidarts.org/performances/erths-prehistoric-aquarium-adventure.
