Darlington Civic Theatre – Dinosaur Zoo

Civic-Theatre-Hi-Res-Logo-1-117x300DINOSAURS DIRECT FROM THE WEST END

A fantastic collection of prehistoric creatures is set to roam the stage of Darlington Civic Theatre with Dinosaur Zoo on Friday 25 and Saturday 26 September.

Direct from a hugely successful summer season in London’s West End, Dinosaur Zoo is touring the UK with its impressive cast of prehistoric creatures, and now introduces one of the most ferocious predators to ever walk the earth, the Tyrannosaurus Rex, live on stage. Offering a fantastic family experience, Dinosaur Zoo comes to Darlington Civic Theatre on Friday 25 and Saturday 26 September.

Dinosaur Zoo creators ‘Erth’ use ingenious puppetry to bring dinosaurs to life in an interactive and imaginative live show, suitable for all the family (ages 3+). Audiences are introduced to a range of creatures from cute baby dinos to teeth-gnashing giants. During the show, intrepid audience members brave enough to get up close and personal with the dinosaurs are invited on stage to assist the Zoo Keeper – but be warned – not all of these ravenous reptiles are as tame as they seem!

Fast-becoming a worldwide hit, Dinosaur Zoo has played to audiences across the globe, from Australia to Los Angeles, from New York City to Bahrain and across Europe, delighting children and parents with its perfect mix of adventurous daring, informative learning and entertaining fun. Dinosaur Zoo first roared into the UK in 2013, enjoying a hugely successful season at Regent’s Park Open-Air Theatre. Now on its fifth major UK tour, Dinosaur Zoo introduces the T-REX to the regional stage for the very first time.

Australian based Erth create original live theatre at the forefront of new performance practice, inspiring audiences with their unique and dynamic vision. Since its beginnings in 1990, the company has strived to provide audiences with eye-popping visual experiences incorporating, amongst other disciplines, giant puppetry and inflatable environments.

Dinosaur Zoo is at Darlington Civic Theatre on Friday 25 and Saturday 26 September. Tickets are £12.50, Schools £8.50 with 1 free with every 10 booked, Danger Seats £15 (limited availability).
