HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - One of the keys to learning is fun! And that is the idea behind a new series of fun interactive plays performed by the Honolulu Theatre for Youth.

The dinosaurs are here until September 25, and Dr. V and Taizo went downtown to learn more about life millions of years ago at the Tenney Theater.

Dr. V Show: Dinosaurs!

August 31, 2010

The Experiment:

Do you like dinosaurs? Maybe you should be a paleontologist. A paleontologist is a scientist who learns about dinosaurs and other prehistoric forms of life, mainly by studying fossils. They use many different types of tools and techniques to find their fossils as well as to determine how old the fossils are and what type of life form it was. They use a variety of scientific techniques including biochemistry, mathematics and engineering when analyzing the fossils.  By looking at the fossils using different techniques, they learn many different things about dinosaurs, like how big they were, where they lived, what they ate and even what they pooped!

Honolulu Theater for Youth…

This school year, the Honolulu Theater for Youth presents the Season of Science! Their first show is called "The Dinosaur Play" and starts this Friday, August 27, 2010 at Tenney Theater. This show is appropriate for ages four and up!

Magically transported back millions and millions of years, the audience finds itself actively participating in the last age of the dinosaurs. When a dinosaur egg taps out a call for help, can you interpret what the egg is saying and help the egg to hatch? Dare you form an alliance with a rough Triceratops? How will you protect and nurture your new dinosaur family?

Opening night is this Friday, August 27th at 7:30pm

Shows are Saturdays at 4:30pm from August 28th  through September 25th.
