This show brings dinosaurs to life on stage in an interactive show for all the
family (ages 3+). Following a hugely successful UK tour last year, DINOSAUR
WORLD LIVE returns due to popular demand, now featuring a brand new Triceratops.
The 2018 UK tour opens on 30 March at The Broadway, Peterborough, visiting a
further 30 venues nationwide, followed by a 4-week summer season at Regent’s
Park Open Air Theatre in London (14 August - 9 September 2018). The 2018 cast
includes: Elizabeth Mary Williams (Miranda), Alexandra Harman (Understudy
Miranda/ Puppeteer), Darcy Collins (Puppeteer), Liam Wright (Puppeteer),
Samantha Arends (Puppeteer), Chris Milford (Puppet Technician/Puppeteer).
Using stunning puppetry to bring remarkably life-like dinosaurs to the stage,
DINOSAUR WORLD LIVE presents a host of impressive pre-historic creatures
including every child's favourite flesh-eating giant, the Tyrannosaurus Rex,
along with a Giraffatitan, Microraptor, Segnosaurus and Triceratops. The show
introduces Miranda, daughter of palaeontologists, who grew up surrounded by
dinosaurs on a far-away island off the coast of South America. She has brought
her pre-historic pals to your local theatre and would love you to meet them.
Warning: some of these dinosaurs aren’t as docile as they seem!
If looking for fun things to do with the kids, DINOSAUR WORLD LIVE delivers an
entertaining and educational live show that promises to delight the whole
family. Each performance is followed by a post-show meet and greet where
audience members have the opportunity to meet some of the dinosaurs in person.
