Dinosaur World Live, 13 & 14 June, Forum, Barrow

Back by popular demand, DINOSAUR WORLD LIVE, the interactive children’s theatre show that brings dinosaurs to life on stage, returns for a major UK tour this year, including a summer season at London’s Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre.


Heading out on its fifth UK tour, the production will open on 13 February at the New Wolsey Theatre, before visiting a further 25 venues nationwide. The 2023 cast includes: Selin Balcioğlu (Miranda), Rhea Locker-Marsh (Puppeteer / Understudy Miranda / Puppet Captain), Sharon Sze (Puppeteer / Puppet Tech), William Uden (Puppeteer), Nicholas Halliwell (Puppeteer), Ross Lennon (Puppeteer).


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 your local theatre and would love you to meet them. Warning: some of these dinosaurs aren’t as docile as they seem!

If looking for fun things to do with the kids, DINOSAUR WORLD LIVE delivers an entertaining and educational live show 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 meet some of the dinosaurs in person.


Dino-lovers are urged to book fast before tickets become extinct!
