Last Chance To Trek Back To The Cretaceous At The Royal Saskatchewan Museum

The Royal Saskatchewan Museum (RSM) stage show titled: “T.rex Tale, a Trek to the Cretaceous” was a summer success and will only offer a few more shows before wrapping for the season.

“T.rex Tale has been a well-attended hit at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum this summer,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said.  “This show offers a fun and educational way for families to enjoy their summer vacation and is another new activity that draws visitors to the museum, where they can visit Scotty, the world’s largest T.rex ever discovered!”

The stage show takes the audience back in time 66,000,000 years with avid birdwatcher Robin Starling to meet a young T.rex named Tini.  Participants learn about the biology of this animal and explore the environment of Saskatchewan during the Cretaceous period.

T.rex Tale is presented by Taylor Portfolio Management – Scotia Wealth Management and has been enjoyed by more than 6500 people.  Another group that has enjoyed bringing this show to life has been Sask Abilities.

The organization has provided volunteer greeters on Tuesdays and Wednesdays to help welcome and seat guests of the performance.  The volunteers have been a part of the success of the show and have had the opportunity to gain work experience along the way.

“Our partnership with the Royal Saskatchewan Museum aligns with our vision of working together to build inclusive communities for people of all abilities,” Connections Coordinator with Sask Abilities Daniela Wagman said.  “In addition to a sense of satisfaction and achievement, this experience provided the volunteers with opportunities to learn new skills and for meaningful participation in the community.”

“They were thrilled to be part of this exciting event,” Connections Coordinator with Sask Abilities Tracy Wright said.

Performances will continue to run daily at 2:00 p.m. until August 11.  On August 16, to celebrate the Anniversary of Scotty’s discovery, a viewing of the show will take place at 2:00 p.m. and will lead into a dinosaur parade around the RSM grounds.  The final shows will take place on August 23 and 30 at 2:00 p.m.
