Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo™ is an experiential theatre performance featuring a cast of large-scale dinosaur puppets brought to life by sophisticated design, electronics and theatrical presentation.

These amazingly life-like dinosaur recreations are developed in consultation with paleontologists, based on current science and specialist interpretations of dinosaur fossil evidence.

Erth’s dinosaur puppets stimulate the imagination about dinosaur life in a way that connects children to the real science of paleontology.

In this show, children get to meet Erth’s awesome prehistoric creatures, from cute baby dinos to teeth-gnashing giants.

Ancient life-like dinosaurs are alive and mostly friendly (!) in this fun, educational and unique performance event.

Get up close and personal with an amazing array of creatures from bygone eras. Meet a menagerie of insects, mammals and dinosaurs that once roamed free around the southern hemisphere and are now in residence at Erth’s Dinosaur Petting Zoo™.

You can pet, feed and interact with them in a once in a lifetime imaginative experience.

Children can watch wide-eyed from a safe distance or dare to get right up close to these creatures.

This multi-tiered, interactive experience can be set as an indoor proscenium show, an outdoor installation experience, or gallery installation.

Suitable for ages 5+.

Capacity: 100 – 1000+
Stage: Outdoor / Proscenium / Gallery / Black Box
Personnel: 8
Availability: Spring/Summer 2013; 2013-14; 2014-15 OPEN
