The hit West End family show Dinosaur Zoo will come roaring back in to Manchester, visiting the Opera House in September.

Dinosaur Zoo creators, ‘Erth’ use puppetry to bring dinosaurs to life in an interactive and imaginative live show, suitable for all the family (ages 3+), featuring an impressive cast of prehistoric creatures, including one of the most ferocious predators to ever walk the earth – the Tyrannosaurus Rex, live on stage.

Audiences are introduced to a range of creatures from cute baby dinos to teeth-gnashing giants. During the show, 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!

Each performance concludes with a post-show ‘meat & greet’ session offering every audience member a chance to meet the dinosaurs in person.

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 the perfect mix of adventurous daring, informative learning and entertaining fun. Dinosaur Zoo first roared into the UK in 2013, premiering at Regent’s Park Open-Air Theatre, London.

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. Erth has performed internationally at events and festivals including the Sydney Olympic Games Opening Ceremony in 2000.

Dinosaur Zoo is directed by Scott Wright, designed by Steve Howarth and performed by Alex Fisher, Charlotte Cooper, Jeremy Hancock, Nathan Marshall and Rafe Young. DINOSAUR ZOO is presented in the UK by BOS Productions Ltd and Nick Brooke Ltd.

Dinosaur Zoo takes place at Manchester Opera House on 2 and 3 September.
