Media Advisory - Local celebrities Walking with Dinosaurs

    TORONTO, Aug. 8 /CNW/ -

    WHAT:     Local celebrities will be walking the red carpet at Air Canada
              Centre at the Toronto premiere of Walking with Dinosaurs - The
              Live Experience.

              The critically acclaimed stage production is based on the Emmy
              and BAFTA award-winning BBC series Walking with Dinosaurs.
              Walking with Dinosaurs - the Live Experience will mesmerize
              audiences at Canada's premier sports and entertainment venue,
              enabling show-goers to experience what it was like when
              dinosaurs walked and ruled the earth.

              The show uses high-tech puppetry and animatronics to stage
              encounters between 15 life-size dinosaurs (up to 45 feet tall)
              such as the Tyrannosaurus Rex and the Stegosaurus with
              paleontologists narrating the plight of the prehistoric
              creatures. The dinosaurs are designed and built by Sonny
              Tilders (The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the
              Wardrobe, Stars Wars: Episode III -- Revenge of the Sith).
