Dreamworks How to Train Your Dragon is coming to town Oct 25-28!
If you have kids that enjoy thrilling visual performances, this is one to consider. The story is about a boy named Hiccup who lives in a mythical world and does not fit into his family tradition of being a heroic dragon slayer. Along comes a dragon and the show explodes with adventure, thrill and a lot of excitement. It's not too scary for the younger set but thrilling for the school age kids.
A few things you should know before determining if this show it suited for your child.
Who is Hiccup?
Hiccup is a teenage viking who has a strained relationship with his father. He wants badly to become the Viking man his father, the Viking King, wants him to be, but to do this he must slay a dragon. As he sets out to do this, he learns morning about dragons than previously known, befriending the Night Fury Dragon Toothless, and changing the way his father sees him as a young viking, and changing the community along the way.
Dragon's breath..-- is this scary for kids? Is this real fire that comes out of the dragon?
There is a flying dragon known as a Skrill that does breath fire. The other dragons have a combination of smoke and lighting that comes out of their mouths, in conjunction with fire blasts around the arena floor. It’s thrilling and exciting, some of our younger ones, around the age of three, can get a little jump in their seats.
Is there any participation with audience members during the show?
Because of the immersive nature of Dreamwork's storytelling in the arena setting, audience members will feel like they are visiting the Land of Berk where the story takes place. The experience is more immersive than interactive. There are flying dragons, laser lights, fire blasts, smoke effects, bubble effects, farting dragons, and more.
I've seen other DreamWorks animated shows before and they are top notch and an amazing family experience.
Enjoy the show and say hello if you see me there!
