DINOSAUR ZOO Roars Into The West End For Christmas!
Following a hugely successful nationwide tour, including a one-month summer season at Regent's Park Open Air Theatre,DINOSAUR ZOO heads to London's West End for a Christmas run at The Phoenix Theatre, opening on Sunday 1 December, following previews from 27 November, and running through until 12 January 2014.
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.
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 'meet and greet', which takes place at the end of each show.
Fast becoming a worldwide hit, DINOSAUR ZOO has played to family and schools audiences all over the world, from Australia to Los Angeles, from New York City to Bahrain, exciting children with its popular mix of entertaining humour, adventurous daring and informative learning.
Australian based Erth create original Live Theatre at the forefront of new performance practice, inspiring audiences with their unique and dynamic vision. Since its beginnings in 1990, the company has strived to provide audiences with eye-popping visual experiences incorporating, amongst other disciplines, giant puppetry and inflatable environments. Erth has performed internationally at events and festivals, including the Sydney Olympic Games Opening Ceremony in 2000.
DINOSAUR ZOO is directed by Scott Wright, designed by Steve Howarth and performed by Lindsey Chaplin, Scott Wright, Hal Silvester, Steve Peck and Tina Jackson. DINOSAUR ZOO is presented in the UK by BOS Productions Ltd and Nick Brooke Ltd.
