Dinosaurs Rock Assembly
Dinosaurs Rock Assembly. Ever wondered which dinosaur was the *biggest, the smallest, the most heavily armoured, the brightest, the fastest, the deadliest, the weirdest. Read on and find out!
(I’ve just come across a brilliant poem entitled The Dinosaurs That Time Forgot by David Harmer and Paul Cookson – great lines).
* I have included information from recent discovery of ‘the largest’ as per Telegraph article “Giant of giants rises from the desert” May 18 2014).
Cast of 30 – easily adaptable up or down. Duration – around 10 minutes not including music.
Dinosaurs Rock Assembly. Sample Text
Music 2 – We Will Rock You – Queen
(Enter Seismosaurus, Mamenchisaurus, Giganotosaurus, Spinosaurus, and Carcharodontosaurus)
(Everyone shaking in seats)
Narrator: What’s happening? Is it an earthquake?
Seismosaurus: Sorry! That would be me! I’ll try not to move – all 120 feet of me! They don’t call me ‘earth-shaking lizard’ for nothing!
Mamenchisaurus: But when you’ve got necks as long as us, you really don’t need to move that far! My neck alone was 46 feet long!
Gigantosaurus: And I, Gigantosaurus, was the daddy of the meat-eaters! All 8,000 kilograms of me!
Carcharondontaurus: And I sure had a mean pair of ‘choppers’ – no prizes for guessing where my name ‘shark-tooth lizard’ came from!
Spinosaurus: Well, take a look at my jaws! I, Spinosaurus, was called spiny lizard because of these spines on my back, but nobody was going to argue with these (snapping crocodile-like jaws, open and shut)
