Dinosaur Zoo

The great frustration about being a big-shot intellectual critic who prides himself on being avant-garde is that I don't get to see stuff like this.

DINOSAUR ZOO creators ‘Erth’ use ingenious puppetry to bring dinosaurs to life in this interactive and imaginative live show, suitable for all the family (age 3+). Audiences are introduced to a range of creatures from cute baby dinos to teeth-gnashing giants, including a carnivorous theropod known as the Australovenator, based on the most complete meat-eating dinosaur skeleton found in Australia. 

Seriously, puppet dinosaurs... 

During the show, intrepid audience members brave enough to get up close and personal with the dinosaurs are brought onto the stage to assist the Zoo Keeper in his/her daily tasks - but be warned - not all of these ravenous reptiles are as tame as they seem! For those who aren't able to join the dinosaurs on stage, they will have the opportunity to meet them at the official ‘meat and greet’, which takes place at the end of each show.

Look! They eat the audience... You don't get this at  Belgian experimental devised theatre.

Fast-becoming a worldwide hit, DINOSAUR ZOO has played to family and schools audiences all over the world, from Sydney to Los Angeles, from New York City to Bahrain, exciting children with its popular mix of entertaining humour, adventurous daring and informative learning. The show had a hugely successful UK tour in 2013, including a one-month summer season at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre and a Christmas season at London’s Phoenix Theatre in the West End. It is currently on a second national tour.

DINOSAUR ZOO will continue to tour the UK through Autumn 2014 and Spring 2015.
