Dino Light

by Lightwire Theater

Grades 2-6

Featured on America’s Got Talent, this performance showcases a world of glow-in-the-dark characters created out of neon light. A lonely scientist creates a friendly dinosaur named Darwin and sends him out into the world to discover the “evolution of love.” Growing worried, the scientist goes looking for his creation and gets caught up in the adventure! Unique and visually dazzling, Dino Light is praised for its cutting-edge blend of puppetry, technology, and dance by audiences all over the world.

“We loved the use of lights as a
medium and the 3-dimensionality of it.
It was a spectacular way to tell a story.”

LBC performance may not include pieces from above video.

Extend and enrich your field trip to LBC with a self-guided tour of our outdoor Sculpture Garden!

Students can safely explore our outdoor Sculpture Garden the main exhibits as well as the landscape, bridges, and walkways. Its giant oak trees offer shady seating where classes can discuss their recent experience as consumers of the arts.

LBC opened the Sculpture Garden in 2015 as a gift to our North Bay community. With the support of Sutter Hospital and other generous donors, the Sculpture Garden presents rotating works from contemporary regional artists who create monumental outdoor art that becomes incorporated into the landscaped natural setting.

The LBC’s current exhibition for the outdoor Sculpture Garden, Geometry in Art is running now through August 2025. This exhibition celebrates the intersection of geometry and artistic expression through the works of nine extraordinary artists, each presenting a unique perspective and aesthetic through their exploration of form, line, and negative space.

You can sign up for a self-guided tour right on your School Show application or email us.
