Denny the Dinosaur
Denny is your average Tyrannosaurus Rex in all ways except one: his less-than-average size! School bully Marcus teases him because of his differences, but when the class turns to Denny to save the day, he learns it’s the deeds he does that make him strong. A prehistoric musical that celebrates the unique strengths in us all!
DENNY THE TINY DINOSAUR, the smallest T-REX that ever existed. He will never get beyond a few feet tall and this gives him great anxiety as he goes through Dinosaur School. Very supportive parents try and encourage him, but as he is bullied by MARCUS in school, he has a miserable time being himself. He just wants to be big like all of the other T-Rex’s. He learns about the power of friendship, confidence, bravery, loving yourself and having a “never give up” attitude within this musical, making for a wonderfully heroic ending to this incredibly fun story.
MOM DINOSAUR, is a classic busy mom, trying to get DENNY up and ready for school. That is hard to do since DENNY dislikes going to school so very much.
MICRO is the third in the trio that makes up DENNY, MOOKIE and MICRO…he is a very quirky, bow tie wearing, fast talking, extremely brilliant Microraptor, who doesn’t even know where he gets all of his knowledge that keeps pouring out of his mouth. He is not brave himself, scared of a lot of things, but always on the side of his two best friends, DENNY and MOOKIE. He is a great cheerleader for DENNY.
MARCUS the T-Rex who is of normal size for his age and the bully of the class. He’s not evil, he just has fears of his own, so he always picks on DENNY due to his size. MARCUS wants to be the center of attention and tries to get the other Dinosaurs to laugh when he makes fun of DENNY. A few do. Most don’t. No one REALLY likes MARCUS. He learns about the power of friendship, to always tell the truth and never make fun of anyone, for every single dinosaur is special, no matter how small they are.
MOOKIE is DENNY’S best friend and a force of nature to be reckoned with, as she says what she thinks, she never lets anyone make fun of DENNY, she pushes him to be brave by telling him he can do it…she knows he can. Always happy, fun loving, and a very cool Brontosaurus, MOOKIE adds an important element of what a true friend is.
TEACHER is a great teacher, who adores all of her dinosaur students….she is a fun teacher too and definitely does not allow any of her dinosaurs to have hurt feelings. She deals with bullying head on.
DAD DINOSAUR, is a classic busy dad, who just wants DENNY to go to school, have fun and learn as much as he can about being a T-Rex, no matter his size.
