Two Shows: Tues. April 29th at 10 a.m. &
12:30 p.m.


Erth’s DINOSAUR ZOO Live takes you on a tour through pre-historic Australia, bringing an eye-popping array of ancient creatures to life on stage.  You will observe and interact with extraordinarily life-like creatures, just like those that inhabited the Southern Hemisphere millions of years ago.   Meet a menagerie of insects, mammals and dinosaurs in their ancient environment, in this highly imaginative, entertaining and educational live show.   From the sweetly curious baby Dryosaur, to the peaceful hulk Titanosaur, and even the teeth-gnashing T-rex — Erth’s DINOSAUR ZOO Live is a unique interactive theater performance that stimulates the imagination in a way that connects children to their world.  Erth’s large-scale puppets were developed in consultation with paleontologists, based on current science and interpretations of fossil evidence.   Employing sophisticated design and electronics, these giants are brought to life by skilled performers and puppeteers, made all the more real through the magic of theatre.
