Philadelphia Kids Spotlight: December '05

No company in the city scored a bigger holiday hit last year than the Arden Theatre Company with their hugely successful production of A Year with Frog and Toad by Willie and Robert Reale -- so it's not a surprise to try to recreate that success with the world premiere of the Reales' The Dinosaur Musical (through January 22). Helmed by Frog and Toad director Whit MacLaughlin and starring Joshua Lamon (who grabbed a well-deserved Barrymore for his performance as the achingly slow Snail in Frog and Toad), the show concerns a prehistoric food shortage which causes the world's dinosaurs make a pact to no longer feast on each other for lunch. But the most carnivorous of the giants, the T-Rex, breaks the agreement, leaving it up to a group of peaceful dinosaurs to save the world.
