The Mount Baker Theatre will present Jim West’s “Dinosaurs,” the final show in its 2011-2012 education series, at 10 a.m. and 12:15 p.m. on Thursday, May 3.
The show is sponsored by Wilson Engineering of Bellingham.
West mixes storytelling with the latest dinosaur discoveries and dino-puppet making ideas, along with the music of Mozart, Beethoven, Mahler, Stravinsky and Prokofiev, according to a March 20 press release.
This is the 16th season of the theater’s education series. Nearly 15,000 local students attended the series last year.
For the eighth consecutive year, the series is sponsored by the Frank King Family in memory of their son, Wade Bennett King, one of the three youths killed in 1999 by an explosion resulting from the rupture of a fuel line that ran through Whatcom Falls Park in Bellingham.
The Mount Baker Theatre also receives support from a tourism facilities grant from the city of Bellingham, as well as grants from the Washington State Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Tickets can be purchased for $5. For students of the Bellingham School District, tickets are $6.50, with the additional $1.50 offsetting transportation costs covered by the theater.
Mount Baker Theater is located at 104 N. Commercial St. For more information, call 360-734-6080 of visit www.mountbakertheatre.com.
