Dinosaur hunters head to Wayne Theatre for Science Talks
A group of scientists consumed with trying to find dinosaurs will take a break from the hunt to talk about their experiences at the Wayne Theatre on Tuesday, Sept. 13.
The dinosaur hunters presentation is the first of three events in the Signature Speaker Series: Science Talks coming up this fall at the Historic Wayne Theatre/Ross Performing Arts Center in Waynesboro.
The events are being held in conjunction with the Virginia Museum of Natural History, which is currently exploring with the City of Waynesboro its options for building a satellite museum location in the city.
“We hope this is the beginning of a long-standing partnership between the Wayne Theatre and the Virginia Museum of Natural History,” said Tracy Straight, the executive director of the Wayne Theatre.
