Greetings Tampa Bay!  It's Jessica with another Tampa Bay entertainment update.  For those of you who haven't heard, the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center is presenting an exciting performance in October at the St. Pete Times Forum...  WALKING WITH DINOSAURS - The Arena Spectacular, on it's tour across North America, will be making a stop in Tampa Bay from October 14 to October 18 for eight performances.  

"WALKING WITH DINOSAURS," based on the award-winning BBC Television Series, brings the extinct creatures back to life to roam the earth in a spectacular theatrical arena show.  Ten species are represented from the entire 200 million year reign of the dinosaurs.  The show depicts the dinosaurs's evolution, complete with climatic and tectonic changes that took place, which led to the demise of many species.  With almost cinematic realism, WALKING WITH DINOSAURS has scenes of the interactions between dinosaurs, and the audience sees how carnivorous dinosaurs evolved to walk on two legs, and how herbivores fended off their more agile predators. 

Now that you know a little more about the show I can share with you the reason we are promoting this event in August... you guessed it, we have a special offer for you!  This is your chance to join the 2.4 million Americans who have already seen the production since it opened in July 2007!  A special offer in ticket prices is available for the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday performances in October.
