School information

The Dinosaur Show

Your school can take part in a family event and school fundraiser with a difference. It’s called the Dinosaur Show.

The Dinosaur Show

  • Is professional live family theatre
  • Is performed in your school hall for one night
  • Donates a percentage of its ticket sales to your school

The unique idea behind the dinosaur show is that it uses school halls to bring professional theatre to communities (in the evenings after school) at an affordable price and schools can raise funds at the same time.

But best of all is the show itself.

The Dinosaur Show transforms your school hall into a live theatre and takes the audience back to the Jurassic age with life size dinosaurs and an amazing lighting and sound show.

The Dinosaur Show’s story is titled, I Eat Therefore I Am! It is about Tyson, a young dinosaur who can’t stop eating – even his friends! The Dinosaur Show uses amazing life like puppets and a little bit of dinosaur poo to create a magical story the whole family can enjoy.

The Dinosaur show can fit into any school hall and is designed to be a great night out for your whole school community.

 How does it work?

  • The Dinosaur Show comes to your school, sets up in the afternoon (3.30pm) for an evening performance (7pm).
