From a press release:

The Jurassic World Live Tour, an exhilarating and unpredictable live family entertainment experience, will bring the wonder and thrills of the “Jurassic Park” films to generations of fans at the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza in Wilkes-Barre Township on Thursday, Nov. 19 through Sunday, Nov. 22.

The highly anticipated show premiered last September and has since been thrilling audiences nationwide. With unrivaled arena production quality, “Jurassic World” comes to life against a backdrop of captivating scenery where dinosaurs from the iconic franchise, including fan-favorite Velociraptor Blue and a Tyrannosaurus rex more than 40 feet in length, take center stage.

The production features more than 20 film-accurate, life-sized dinosaurs, each custom built with the latest technology, scientific precision, and Hollywood studio quality. With scale, speed and ferocity, the animatronic and performer-operated dinosaurs deliver colossal, edge-of-your-seat live entertainment unlike any other dinosaur experience.

Local showtimes include Nov. 19 at 7 p.m.; Nov. 20 at 7 p.m.; Nov. 21 at 11 a.m., 3 p.m., and 7 p.m.; and Nov. 22 at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.

The New York Times describes this Feld Entertainment production as “the most technically complex the company has ever produced.”

“Jurassic World’s” unmistakable score adds to the larger-than-life, immersive journey that will captivate fans of all ages. Through a combination of projection and practical scenery, the arena will transform into the dense jungles of Isla Nublar, where real Gyrospheres roll through the valley and scientists work to unravel a corrupt plan and save an all-new dinosaur from a terrible fate. With pulse-pounding stunts and an original, authentic storyline, this show is guaranteed to make memories that will last another 65 million years.

“Working with a world-class production team and Universal filmmakers, we have extended the ‘Jurassic World’ canon with a new story that can only be told through this live arena spectacular as we bring full-scale dinosaurs to generations of fans around the globe,” said Juliette Feld Grossman, Chief Operating Officer of Feld Entertainment, the worldwide leader in live touring family entertainment.

“We have maximized the power of everything we do at Feld Entertainment, pushing the boundaries of technology and innovation to ensure audiences have an authentic, awe-inspiring experience. Fans will leave with a sense of wonder, as if they’ve boarded the boat to Isla Nublar and literally stepped into Jurassic World.”

USA Today described the show, saying, “My heart still races when the velociraptor’s nose is pointed my way. It’s a testament to how well the ‘Jurassic’ movies have instilled an illogical fear of extinct creatures, how true the Jurassic World Live team stayed to the animals from the movie, and how high-tech animatronic puppets have gotten in order to tell stories about prehistoric creatures.”

From Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment, “Jurassic World” immerses audiences of all ages in a new era of wonder and thrills where dinosaurs and humankind must learn to coexist. “Jurassic World” is more than a film franchise. At every turn, this $5 billion film series delivers a larger-than-life destination for exploration, discovery, and epic adventure. Dinosaurs live again and they live in Jurassic World.
