Created in Australia, this entertaining and educational theatre attraction will play Proctors, 7 p.m. Friday, March 16.

Erth’s DINOSAUR ZOO LIVE is an experiential theatre production which takes audiences on a prehistoric journey into a new dimension, where they get to meet a menagerie of insects, mammals and dinosaurs that once roamed the planet millions of years ago. Featuring a large-scale cast of life-sized dinosaur puppets brought to life by sophisticated design and theatrical presentation and puppet mastery, these amazingly life-like dinosaur recreations connect children to paleontology in a fun and informative setting. This new production will feature nineteen dinosaurs on stage, including the awesome Triceratops which Erth created uniquely for the North American tour. Children can watch and learn, but can also interact with the creatures in this fun, educational and unique presentation.

Erth’s DINOSAUR ZOO LIVE is both entertaining and educational. The Chicago Tribune loved it, saying: ‘A delightful and educational date with the dinos that provides visual oomph to rival The Lion King.” The New York Times said, “Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo delivers solid science as well as an extraordinary spectacle.”

Erth’s DINOSAUR ZOO LIVE is the creation of one of Australia’s most innovative and creative companies, Erth Visual & Physical, Inc., who bring the impossible to life. For over 21 years, the company has developed a truly fantastic aesthetic and an extraordinary box of tricks, which now serve as the foundations of its unique visual and physical theatre work. Their work ranges from large-scale interactive environments such as ‘The Garden,’ a prehistoric landscape inhabited by giant insects which premiered at the Melbourne International Festival of Arts, to more intimate in-theatre work and roving spectaculars. The company regularly tours internationally and more than a million people have seen its dinosaurs in museums, and in performance works such as Radio Lab’s Apocalyptical, Dinosaur Petting Zoo and Erth’s DINOSAUR ZOO LIVE ™. Writing about Erth, The Sydney Morning Herald said; ‘It’s a rare and pleasurable work that manages technical brilliance, cultural insight and enchantment all in one go.’

The company of Erth’s DINOSAUR ZOO LIVE will be lead on stage by ‘Host’ Charlie Jhaye, with Miron Gusso, Joe Aholt and Eryn Malafronte as puppeteers.

 You’re going to hear us roar!
