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).
