Back by Popular Demand! From 1984 to 1998, Mammoth Follies was performed for audiences all over the country. In February 2012, this illustrious troupe of dinosaurs once again stormed the stage in a completely renovated production of this wildly popular and thoroughly educational production.
Mammoth Follies explores the wonders of evolution in an old-fashioned revue of original songs, witty jokes, and earth-smashing dances performed by giant dinosaur puppets. This program dramatizes historic and scientific facts (as well as some myths) about the great age of the dinosaur.
Enormous puppets populate the stage, including your host Willie Mammoth, Smiley the Saber-Toothed Tiger, Bessie the lovable 27-foot long Apatosaurus, Tony and Trixie Triceratops, Terry the Pterodactyl, and the 11-foot tall T. Rex in a musical trip through pre-history.
