Dinosaurs, Hit Men set to perform at the Lafon Center

The week of March 6 will offer two unique entertainment opportunities at Luling’s Lafon Center.

“Our season line up is extraordinary this year,” Lafon Center Director Chris Aucoin-Melohn said. “We know life has been throwing us all curveballs these past couple of years, and we just want to be a place for our community to come, relax and experience world-class arts programming in their backyard.”

Dinosaur World Live will be presented March 6 at 3 p.m. Using stunning puppetry to bring remarkably life-like dinosaurs to the stage, Dinosaur World Live presents a host of impressive pre-historic creatures including every child’s favorite flesh-eating giant, the Tyrannosaurus Rex, along with a Griffatitan, Microraptor, Segnosaurus and Triceratops.

The show introduces Miranda, the daughter of paleontologists, who grew up surrounded by dinosaurs on a far-away island off the coast of South Africa. She presents her pre-historic pals to the show’s audience during the performance.

Later in the week, audiences are invited to relive rock’s greatest hits with The Hit Men – a group of performers who performed with legendary artists including members of Foreigner, Journey, Styx, The Hooters, Steely Dan, Cheap Trick, The Rascals, Alan Parsons, 3 Dog Night, Cream, Grand Funk and The Who.

That show is set for March 12 at 7:30 p.m.

In their exciting multi-media concert, The Hit Men celebrate their associations with those mega-stars, share their first-hand experiences as eyewitnesses to rock history and perform classic hits such as “Layla”, “Don’t Stop Believin'”, I Want You to Know What Love Is”, “Fells Like the First Time”, “Eye in the Sky” and many more.

In 2019, members of The Hit Men were recognized by the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville with the organization’s first-ever “Road Warriors Award”, given to honor “their years of dedication to the music and countless miles they have traveled in delivering so many hits throughout the world.”

The Lafon Center is located at 275 Judge E. Dufresne Pkwy in Luling. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.lafonartscenter.org.
