Join the adventures as Fetch, a ten-foot-tall T-Rex takes center stage in Brucemore’s Outdoor Children’s Theatre: Tyrannosaurus Fetch, July 25 – 28 at 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. Expecting a toy from a mail order catalogue, ten-year-old Cal is overjoyed when a real life dinosaur is delivered to his doorstep. With help from the audience, will Cal and Fetch, his new dinosaur friend, be able to complete all of Cal’s chores without getting into trouble? What will happen when Cal’s parents discover Fetch is not a toy, but a real life dinosaur? Will Cal be allowed to keep Fetch?

Tyrannosaurus Fetch is an original play written and directed by Joe Link, Associate Drama Director at Cedar Rapids Jefferson High School. Link said, "The dinosaur is not only physically big, but it may actually be big enough to meet a child's imagination."

Link was also the creator of past Brucemore Outdoor Children’s Theatre productions: The Incredible Adventures of Captain Spoon, The Forgetful Pirate (2007); The Princess Who Wouldn’t Wear Pink (2009); Robin Hood: Wanted (2010); and Grimm Brothers Fairy Tale Repair Shoppe (2011).

Brucemore’s natural amphitheater near the pond will set the stage for this interactive children’s show. Gates open at 5:00 and 7:00 p.m. Children and their adult chaperones are encouraged to bring blankets and lawn chairs (no food or beverage please). On-site parking is available. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for children.  Tickets are nonrefundable and may be purchased the night of the performance.  Brucemore Outdoor Children’s Theatre is sponsored by US Bank and media sponsored by ImOn Communications.

Experience Brucemore, an unparalleled blend of tradition and culture, located at 2160 Linden Drive SE, Cedar Rapids, Iowa. At the heart of the historic 26-acre estate stands a nineteenth-century mansion filled with the stories of three Cedar Rapids families.  Concerts, theater, programs, and tours enliven the site and celebrate the heritage of a community.  For more information, call (319) 362-7375 or visit
