Di­nosaurs brought to life on stage for all the fam­ily

Loughborough Echo - - THE GUIDE -

DARE to ex­pe­ri­ence the dan­gers and de­lights of Di­nosaur World where di­nosaurs come to life on stage in a brand new in­ter­ac­tive show for all the fam­ily.

Of­fer­ing great days out for the kids this au­tumn, Di­nosaur World roars into the The­atre Royal Not­ting­ham from Friday to Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 13-15, as part of a ma­jor UK tour.

Di­nosaur World in­tro­duces au­di­ences to the lost is­land of Mundo De Los La­gar­tos Ter­ri­bles off the east coast of South Amer­ica, a land of gi­ant lizards, ru­moured to be in­hab­ited by di­nosaurs who’d es­caped mass ex­tinc­tion at the end of the cre­ta­ceous pe­riod. Us­ing stun­ning pup­petry to bring a range of re­mark­ably life-like di­nosaurs to the stage, the show re­veals a host of im­pres­sive crea­tures in­clud­ing ev­ery child’s favourite flesh-eat­ing gi­ant, the Tyran­nosaurus Rex, along with a Gi­raf­fati­tan, Seg­nosaurus and baby Tricer­atops, to name a few! The live show is fol­lowed by a post­show ‘meat and greet’ where au­di­ence mem­bers have the op­por­tu­nity to meet the di­nosaurs in per­son.

This en­ter­tain­ing and en­gag­ing new show is sure to de­light the whole fam­ily, while also ed­u­cat­ing young peo­ple (and adults) about these in­cred­i­ble crea­tures from the Me­so­zoic era. Ex­plor­ers are urged to book fast be­fore tick­ets be­come ex­tinct!
