Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo Live

2:00 pm Sunday, April 6, 2014

Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo Live takes you on a tour through prehistoric Australia, bringing an eye-popping array of ancient creatures to life on stage. Observe and interact with extraordinarily lifelike creatures, just like those that inhabited the Southern Hemisphere millions of years ago. Meet a menagerie of insects, mammals, and dinosaurs in their ancient environment in this highly imaginative, entertaining, and educational live show. From the sweetly curious baby Dryosaur, to the peaceful hulk Titanosaur—and even the teeth-gnashing T-rex—Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo Live is a unique interactive theatre performance that stimulates the imagination in a way that connects children to their world. Erth’s large-scale puppets were developed in consultation with paleontologists, based on current science and interpretations of fossil evidence. Employing sophisticated design and electronics, skilled performers and puppeteers bring these giants to life through the magic of theatre.
