March 5 (Premiere)….Prehistoric Beasts! the Exhibit - Giant beavers, ground sloths, woolly mammoths and saber cats are taking over the city! Only after the extinction of the dinosaurs could mammals and other strange creatures radiate to fill all of the empty ecological space that had been vacated. This exhibit displays a vast array of these wonderful and weird creatures. A nearly complete skeleton named the Hebior Mammoth is the largest creature in the exhibit. A Woolly Rhinoceros skeleton is a highlight of this exhibit. This complete skeleton of Coelodonta antiquitatis is the only authentic traveling specimen in the world. Ursus spelaeus, the Russian cave bear, is depicted emerging from his cave. This skeleton stands over 8' tall and is all authentic bone. The giant, prehistoric ground sloth fossils from the Rancho La Brea tar pits are excellent specimens. The Glossotherium in this exhibit is a direct casting from one of the finest specimens ever found. The slow-moving, heavily armored, giant armadillo, Glyptodont, and the Smilodon saber-toothed cat also lived at this same time. A life-like snow scene includes some recognizable modern looking animals that lived during the ice age. Visitors will be able to control the movements of various parts of these creatures at a push-button panel. Visitors can view a DVD about the beasts at the Information Station. Here they will also learn more about the terror birds, monster mammals and various tools that both prehistoric and modern animals use to gather food and defend themselves. Several activities will keep families “edu-tained.” Children will have a blast in the “stone age” car as they use their feet to make the front, stone wheel turn. "Yabba-dabba-doo!" Families with children of all ages will be able to uncover fossil bones of prehistoric beasts in the Mammoth Dig Site. Or they can try to guess nine different creature’s names by looking at their skulls at the Spinner Station. Science Spectrum Museum and OMNI Theater, 2579 S. Loop 289.

March 5, 6, 7 (repeats March 12-14; 19-21)….“The Complete History Of America (Abridged)” - "During the manic, ninety-minute program...[they] mine dozens of landmark events and trends for comic gold. Not only do they know how to give American history an irreverent boost, they actually turn it into something accessible and alive." - Pamela Sommers, The Washington Post. The Complete History of America” interprets the past as a breathlessly paced sequence of silly vaudeville sketches, word-association games, puns and crude parodies of movie and television genres. Nothing is sacred, and many of the facts have been skewed to suggest the paranoid ravings of a particularly loony tabloid...." - Stephen Holden, The New York Times. "In a series of sketches that move at breakneck speed, the Reduced Shakespeare Company scampers through American history ...this history of America should be a required course." - Terry Byrne, The Boston Herald. Written by Adam Long, Reed Martin, and Austin Tichenor and directed by Kevin Ten Eyck . Rating: Comedy PG-13. Lubbock Community Theatre (formerly Boston Avenue Playhouse), 4232 Boston Avenue; Fridays and Saturdays 8 p.m.; Sunday 2 p.m.
