Night of the Pterodactyls
Civic Youth Theatre Play
Twelve-year-old Whit thinks Carly, who has just moved to town, is the ugliest girl in the universe. She is also the smartest person Whit has ever met. Carly is obsessed with dinosaurs, and Whit becomes obsessed with Carly. But when Carly starts digging up the neighborhood, Whit has trouble explaining his affection for her to his group of friends - the Gross Associates. When Carly finds a nest of pterodactyl eggs in a neighbor's rose garden, the whole town is turned upside down. Pandemonium abounds and the National Guard has to be called out to keep away the curious. All of the commotion leads to a dramatic finale where the pterodactyl eggs are excavated on live television. The glare of the TV lights is so bright that they warm the pterodactyl eggs and they begin to hatch...or do they?
