Dinosaur World Live – Norwich Theatre Royal

Norwich Theatre Royal, NR2 1RL
Friday 26th Oct (2pm-4.30pm) and Saturday 27th Oct (11am, 2pm, 4.30pm)

Norwich Theatre Royal audiences are invited to grab their compasses and head off on an adventure into the age of the dinosaurs on October 26 & 27.

Dinosaur World, which visited Norwich last August, is an interactive show for all the family ‚Äď everyone aged three-plus ‚Äď as they join intrepid explorer Miranda to cross unchartered territories and discover a pre-historic world of astonishing (and remarkably life-like) dinosaurs, including every child’s favourite flesh-eating giant the Tyrannosaurus Rex, as well as a Giraffatitan, Microraptor, Segnosaurus and Triceratops.

Direct from a hugely successful West End summer season, the show is onits third UK tour this autumn, delivering an entertaining and educational live experience that promises to delight the whole family. Each performance is followed by a post-show meet and greet where audience members have the opportunity to see some of the dinosaurs up close and in person.

The show uses stunning puppetry to bring these remarkably life-like creatures to the stage hosted by Miranda, daughter of palaeontologists, who grew up surrounded by dinosaurs on a far-away island off the coast of South America.
