The Dragons Are Coming! The Dragons Are Coming!


Something pretty cool is coming to Pittsburgh. Something fun and exciting and full of fiery goodness! That something is Dreamworks’ How to Train Your Dragon Live Spectacular!

Yes – the same How to Train Your Dragon that was released as an awesome animated movie in 2010. It’s now a live stage show that is making its way around the country and into a venue near you.

Like the movie, and based on the book by Cressida Cowell, it centers on Hiccup, a Viking teenager who doesn’t fit in with his tribe’s longstanding tradition of heroic dragon slayers. Hiccup’s world is turned upside down when he encounters a dragon that challenges him and his fellow Vikings to see the world from an entirely different point of view.

And if you thought it was pretty cool as an animated film, you will be blown away by the live version.

In addition to a cast of great actors, you will see 23 live dragons! OK, not live, exactly, but the closest thing you can imagine to a live dragon – life-sized, animatronic, flying, fire-breathing dragons! Over 2 miles of “Dragon Skin” was made to create the dragons, and the largest dragon (the Red Death Dragon) is over 40 feet high and 60 feet wide. That is pretty amazing, in my opinion. Here’s a peek at some of the amazing creatures that are part of Dreamworks’ How to Train Your Dragon Live Spectacular (click to see them in a larger size):

Now, here is the really cool part: While Dreamworks’ How to Train Your Dragon Live Spectacular will be in Pittsburg at the Consol Energy Center (where my family and I will see it) from August 23 to August 26, it will be making stops in cities all over the country, and I have a discount code that will get you 25% on select seats for weekday performances – including Friday nights!  All you have to do is enter the code MOM in the promo box which says “MOMMY BLOG”!

This is a pretty great deal, considering that the tickets are reasonably priced to begin with. Add the discount and you have yourself an affordable and fun night out with your family. CLICK HERE to purchase tickets, for showtimes and much more. There are also amazing VIP packages for many of the shows.  CLICK HERE for details on how to meet the dragons as well as other VIP opportunities!

About sugarmag

Forty-sdjhfkjsdhfkjsdh year old mom of 2 - a 18 year old boy and a 11 year old girl. I love them very much, but they drive me crazy. I'm married and work full-time. I'm not sure which of these is the most exhausting, but probably the husband. I'm opinionated. I'm outspoken. I'm loud. I'm an over-sharer. I think Tom Cruise is a jackass. I like to say jackass. I like to swear, period. Fuckers. I love to read. I struggle with my weight. I love my job. I dress my pets up and ridicule them regularly. I am not afraid to cut my hair and I don't understand people who are. I hate getting old. I love to laugh. Make me laugh, OK?
