DREAMWORKS HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON LIVE SPECTACULAR
WILL NOW OPEN THURSDAY, JULY 26 IN CHICAGO AT THE UNITED CENTER
The Dragons are draggin' and will be one day late opening in Chicago. However, they have a good excuse.
The critically acclaimed show’s enormous size and groundbreaking technology require an additional day to load-in and build, setting the stage for 23 fire-breathing dragons that swoop and soar directly over the audience. The entire environment immerses children and adults into the magical, mystical world of Vikings and dragons in a never-before-seen arena setting that soars through oceans, valleys and vista mountain tops and spans more than 20,000 square feet of incredible set design. The date change will provide additional time to complete this extraordinary build.
DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc. (Nasdaq: DWA), Global Creatures and S2BN Entertainment announced today that the Chicago premiere of DREAMWORKS HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON LIVE SPECTACULAR will now be on Thursday, July 26 at the United Center, instead of July 25.
It takes 30 tractor trailers and more than 150 crew members to move 10,000 cases of gear and lay down a massive magnetic floor, along with hundreds of thousands of feet of cable to have the show ready for opening night. This incredible family entertainment experience leaves audiences spellbound by the high-flying, fire-breathing dragons – 23 of them, some with wingspans up to 46 feet – hero Viking warriors, world-class acrobats, pyrotechnics and lasers.
