CFF_My Darling DilophosaurusLove, loss and what a dinosaur?!?!?

Autumn Kaleidoscope takes a tongue-in-cheek look at love and obsession with this year’s entry, MY DARLING DILOPHOSAURUS.

Laura Berkemeier is appropriately perky and distracted as dinosaur-obsessed Artie. As Claudia, the put-upon girlfriend, Sara Kenny finds a good balance between love and exasperation. Always fun on stage is Andrew Ian Adams as Edward who serves as semi-clueless friend, confidant, and enabler to Artie.

In their multiple supporting characters’ roles, Kenny, Adams, and Cassidy Steele are appropriately quirky and over-the-top and generate some great laugh-out-loud moments.

The scene stealer of the show is Deanna the Dilophosaurus, well-managed by her handlers: Michael Galusick and Mandy Goodwin.

The script by Sean P. Mette is cute and clever, but could be a bit more focused. For me, a brief, final scene between Artie and Claudia could have been more satisfying.

Fun, funny and family friendly, four performances remain through June 10.
