Performers from the Jurassic World Live Tour, including Olive the Baby Stegosaurus, visited Westwood Elementary School in Pittsburgh on Thursday, Oct. 3, 2019.

Pittsburgh is offering discounted tickets for the Jurassic World Live Tour show at PPG Paints Arena this month and Mayor Bill Peduto joined show staff for an announcement Thursday at Westwood Elementary, where students got to meet Olive the Baby Stegosaurus.

Kids were a little wary when Olive — actually two performers inside an authentic-looking dinosaur costume — roared, but most of them enjoyed patting her.

“We have discounted rates for kids in the city of Pittsburgh to be able to take advantage of this and to be able to see it,” Peduto said. “We’ve done it before with different ice shows and everything. It’s sort of a partnership that the city and the school have on an annual basis.”

Tickets are $30, but the city will distribute them for $10 at community events, schools and at the Mayor’s Office.

The Jurassic World Live Tour runs from Oct. 24 through Oct. 27 at PPG Paints Arena and features 21 dinosaurs and seven different species, according to show staff.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
