Brand new stage show DINOSAUR WORLD comes to Barrow

Dinosaur World

[D]are to experience the dangers and delights of DINOSAUR WORLD where dinosaurs come to life on stage in a brand new interactive show for all the family (ages 3+).

Offering great days out for the kids this Easter holiday, DINOSAUR WORLD roars into the Forum Theatre Barrow on Sat 23 and Sun 24 September (3 performances only), as part of a major UK Tour.

DINOSAUR WORLD introduces audiences to the lost island of Mundo De Los Lagartos Terribles off the east coast of South America, a land of giant lizards, rumoured to be inhabited by dinosaurs who’d escaped mass extinction at the end of the cretaceous period. Using stunning puppetry to bring a range of remarkably life-like dinosaurs to the stage, the show reveals a host of impressive creatures including every child’s favourite flesh-eating giant, the Tyrannosaurus Rex, along with a Giraffatitan, Segnosaurus and baby Triceratops, to name a few! The live show is followed by a post-show ‘meat and greet’ where audience members have the opportunity to meet the dinosaurs in person.

Dinosaur World

This entertaining and engaging new show is sure to delight the whole family, while also educating young people (and adults) about these incredible creatures from the Mesozoic era.

Explorers are urged to book fast before tickets become extinct!
