Skilled puppeteers bring dinosaurs to “life” as they take the audience on a journey through prehistoric Australia
A show 65 million years in the making takes to the Dennis C. Moss Cultural Arts Center’s Main Stage as Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo Live on Saturday, January 13 at 2 p.m. This educational yet exhilarating performance guides audiences on a journey through prehistoric Australia, facing life-like dinosaurs and other creatures along the way. Kids will learn how dinosaurs lived, while also getting to interact with the puppets themselves. Tickets are available here.
Brought to life by a team of skilled performers and puppeteers, and designed with the help of professional paleontologists, Erth’s puppets are extraordinarily realistic. Since its beginnings in 1990, Erth has sought to provide audiences with eye-popping visual experiences, including giant puppetry, stilt-walkers, inflatable environments, and aerial and flying creatures. The Company inspires audiences with its unique and dynamic vision. Erth has built an Australia-wide reputation and is now becoming increasingly popular internationally, due to its exceptional work and distinctive visual aesthetic.
With multiple teams touring simultaneously, Erth’s signature production, Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo, consistently tours North America, the United Kingdom, and Australia. The production has been featured in venues large and small, from community halls in the remote outback to the world-renowned Sydney Opera House. Erth is praised for its construction of stunning puppets of all scales and frequently undertakes bespoke commissions for museums, zoos, theater producers, and festivals around Australia.
Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo Live is recommended for all ages. Tickets for the performance range from $25 to $37, and VIP tickets cost $62. Tickets may be purchased by visiting MossCenter.org, through the Moss Center Box Office in person, or by calling (786) 573-5300.
