Feed the hungry dinosaurs at a theatre near you
Direct from Australia, Erth's Dinosaur Zoo roars into two Westcountry theatres with an impressive cast of prehistoric creatures, live on stage.
Dinosaur Zoo creators Erth, from Sydney in Australia, use ingenious puppetry to bring dinosaurs to life in this interactive and imaginative live show, suitable for all the family, from the age of three upwards.
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 her daily tasks. But be warned, not all of these ravenous reptiles are as tame as they seem!

Theatre company Erth, who are based at Sydney's Carriage Works contemporary arts centre, have been creating imaginative, puppet based theatre productions for the past 23 years.
The company's Dinosaur Zoo toured with huge success around Australia, before taking off around the world, where it has been seen by more than 60 million people.
It cleverly shares a great deal of information about the weird and wonderful dinosaurs which once prowled the Australian continent, in a witty and original format of an interactive show. Children are invited to feed, water and care for these prehistoric marvels including the Meganuera, Dwarf Allosaur and Leaellynasaura, dinosaurs that once really existed in Australia.
"It's a rare and pleasurable work that manages technical brilliance, cultural insight and enchantment all in one go" wrote the Sydney Morning Herald, while another critic described the show as "educational theatre at its best". See it for yourself at the Hall for Cornwall from September 2-3, and the Northcott Theatre in Exeter from September 13-15.
