From silly BIG STAGE SCIENCE SHOWS to our extremely popular ANIMATRONIC DINOSAURS,  to talented children's musicians and even DRAGONS - Strutz Entertainment leaves no stone unturned in the world of large venue science & music stage shows. Taking pride in being North America's LEADER in character driven science stage shows, venues such as Theatres, Performing Art Centers, and Opera Houses have all welcomed the benefits of these crowd pleasing shows that have children, educators, and families asking for more! Shows are as much theatrical experiences as science shows - featuring large stage props, costuming, strong characters, and set décor. Check out our science show, Crash into Science, but do not miss out on our absolutely amazing animatronic productions (dinosaurs and dragons), and music shows with Wesley Waffles!

What We Have to Offer

Dinosaur Dimensions Animatronic Dino Show

Experience realistic looking dinosaurs right at your venue!  This show features a collection of animatronic (and real looking) puppets that engage and educate the children.  A very popular audience show, this smaller production's known to draw MASSIVE crowds at school & library programs!

"Crash Into Science" Theatre Stage Production 

What happens when the scientist "star of the show" doesn't show up for a gig?  Well, one must allow the custodian "Crash," jump on stage and fill in!  Performing large scale experiments, Crash uses his custodial supplies to generate a fun and educational experience like no other!  HILARIOUS!

The Wacky World of Wesley Waffles

Christian Strutz gears up as "Wesley Waffles," performing all original and extremely upbeat kid's music.  This is not your boring music show, either - puppets, magic, and non-stop giggling & dancing will WOW the little ones in the crowd.  Great for library programming, schools, and festivals!



who we are

about our company

Owner/Performer Curt Strutz has been entertaining audiences for close to two decades, delighting crowds from coast to coast in both the United States and Canada.  Based out of Wisconsin, USA, he is proud to bring his productions to your venue to help educate and entertain your audiences.  We strive to bring fairly priced and professional shows to your "stage," and make things as easy as possible for you and your staff.

For our larger stage productions, there are ways for us to drive in our sets/props, as well as options to fly in the show to bet meet your needs.  This is done to best suit your venue, as we like to try and fit our routing into YOUR schedule rather than try and fit our routed tour into calendar.  Is that crazy - sure, but it is just one way we want help make this an easy experience for you!  Half of our productions can be flown in for shows if needed!

As a family business, we are growing into new areas of performance.  Curt's two sons, Caleb and Christian, are bringing their own experiences and love for children's entertainment into the roster with our entertaining music from "The Wacky World of Wesley Waffles" and the new "Dragon Training Academy" animatronic show!

our latest projects

We currently have our nationally touring science show available, "Crash into Science!"  We were originally operating two different shows "The Hillbilly Silly Science Spectacular" & "Rock n Roll Science Show," but have decided to combine the highlights of both shows into one massive production with a wacky and fun storyline! This show is designed with the large-scale stage in mind, but can also be done in large gymnasium settings for larger school assemblies.   Study guides are available.  Crash into Science is educational (containing STEM and science related subjects), as well as TONS of humor to make the shows fast paced and interesting to watch!

We have recently added the singing/guitar talent of musical artist Christian Strutz to our roster.  His children's production "The Wacky World of Wesley Waffles" is an upbeat and high energy show that will keep kids dancing from start to finish.  Perfect for the 2-10 year olds - this is a great show for the fairs/festivals and libraries, but can also be performed on large PAC and theatre stages with fun video backdrop projections!

Our most popular show, driving in record crowds, is by far our Dinosaur Dimensions animatronic puppet show!  This smaller production is absolutely perfect for a daycare setting, school assembly, resort, fair, or one of the most amazing library programs you will ever see!  Librarians often say that Dinosaur Dimensions draws in some of the largest crowds they have ever seen - often blowing the lid off of past record attendance.

The popularity of our animatronic dinosaurs has led us to add a second animatronic puppet show featuring DRAGONS!  The Dragon Trading Academy experience will include teaching kids how to tame and protect themselves against a fierce dragon using the wacky inventions created by steampunk character (and time traveler) Professor Brock Barnabas!  The show concludes with a visit from a fierce dragon, followed by a meet and greet with a less intimidating baby dragon animatronic.  The show contains amazing puppetry & science.


We provide options where we can fly in the show props/sets and fly in performers - allowing YOU to choose the exact date(s) you want to book! Limited to Crash into Science and The Wacky World of Wesley Waffles shows.


There are options to drive in the show & cast of performers and unload the full stage set right at your facility on or just before the performance date!  Animatronic puppet performances require drive-in feature due to size.



We take pride in our entertainment and the quality of our work.  It is the greatest honor to have both testimonials and referrals for our shows - THANK YOU to those who have done that for us!
