Dinosaur World Live to tour UK with accompanying education packs

Date Posted: 09/03/2018

The theatrical show, Dinosaur World Live, brings dinosaurs to life on stage in an interactive and educational performance suitable for all ages.

The UK tour will open on 30th March at The Broadway in Peterborough, visiting a further 31 venues nationwide, followed by a four-week summer season at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre in London. 

Dinosaur World Live: Synopsis

Using puppetry to bring 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, a daughter of palaeontologists, who grew up surrounded by dinosaurs on a far-away island off the coast of South America. 

Each performance is followed by a post-show meet and greet where children have the opportunity to meet some of the dinosaur puppets in person.

School benefits

The show is also offering new teacher packs which include curriculum-based activities so that your class can explore the show and the themes in more detail.

Dinosaur World Live poses as a great introduction to live theatre for teachers wanting to initiate their classes to Drama and also wanting a trip that ties in with other subject such as History, Geography and Science.
