Erth's DINOSAUR ZOO LIVE! Coming to Long Center, 6/17-22

The Long Center has confirmed that you are not imagining things - That undeniable rumble and a far off roar is indeed T-Rex...signaling the arrival of Erth's DINOSAUR ZOO LIVE. Created in Australia, the immensely popular, international theatre attraction will be at the Long Center for 8 shows from June 17-22. Don't miss this chance to experience what life was like amongst these giant creatures. Tickets are on sale now and start at just $18!

DINOSAUR ZOO LIVE is an experiential theatre production which takes audiences on a prehistoric journey into a new dimension. Audiences get to meet a menagerie of insects, mammals and dinosaurs that once roamed the planet millions of years ago. The shows features a large-scale cast of dinosaur puppets brought to life by sophisticated design and theatrical presentation and puppet mastery. These life-like dinosaur recreations connect children to paleontology in a fun and informative setting. This new production will feature sixteen dinosaurs on stage, including the T-Rex and the awesome Triceratops uniquely created for the North American tour. Children can watch and learn, but can also interact with the creatures in this fun, educational and unique presentation.

DINOSAUR ZOO LIVE is both entertaining and educational. The Sydney Morning Herald says; 'It's a rare and pleasurable work that manages technical brilliance, cultural insight and enchantment all in one go.' And The Chicago Tribune loved it, saying: 'A delightful and educational date with the dinos that provides visual oomph to rival 'The Lion King'".

DINOSAUR ZOO LIVE is the creation of one of Australia's most innovative and creative companies, Erth Visual & Physical, Inc., who bring the impossible to life. For over 21 years, the company has developed a truly fantastic aesthetic and an extraordinary box of tricks, which now serve as the foundations of its unique visual and physical theatre work. The company regularly tours internationally and more than a million people have seen its dinosaurs in museums and performance works.

The dinosaurs and other creature puppets, as well as the flora and fauna that make up the set are designed by Steve Howarth. From the Erth studio workshop he supervises a team of artists in the creation of the puppets, sets, props, costumes and associated elements that constantly tour the nation and the globe. He oversees the daily production of giant, teeth-gnashing dinosaurs and inflatable monsters that live alongside traditional fine arts and textiles work, and increasingly, he is incorporating new disciplines such as digital animation.
