Dinosaur World Live to go on show at the Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre
Dinosaur World Live is currently touring the UK and returns to London due to popular demand. It follows a hugely successful national tour last year, including a smash-hit season at Regent’s Park Open-Air Theatre.
Direct from the West End, Dinosaur World Live, the interactive children’s theatre show that brings dinosaurs to life on stage, today announces a seven-week summer season at the brand-new Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre. Dinosaur World Live will be one of the first productions to run at the new fully-flexible performance space located in North West London’s newest cultural neighbourhood, playing from Thursday 18 July to Sunday 1 September 2019, tickets go on sale as of 21 March 2019.
Using stunning puppetry to bring remarkably life-like dinosaurs to the stage, Dinosaur World Live presents a host of impressive pre-historic creatures including every child’s favourite flesh-eating giant, the Tyrannosaurus Rex, along with a Giraffatitan, Microraptor, Segnosaurus and Triceratops. The show introduces Miranda, daughter of palaeontologists, who grew up surrounded by dinosaurs on a far-away island off the coast of South America. She has brought her pre-historic pals to Wembley Park and would love you to meet them. Warning: some of these dinosaurs aren’t as docile as they seem!
Dinosaur World Live delivers an entertaining and educational live show for all the family, suitable for all ages 3 and above. Each performance is followed by a post-show meet and greet where audience members have the opportunity to meet the dinosaurs up close and in person. Tickets are selling out fast on tour, so we urge all dino-lovers to book now for Wembley Park before tickets become extinct!
