Now an international smash hit, following five UK tours including two summer seasons at London’s Regent’s Park Open-Air Theatre (2018 and 2023) and Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre (2019); a major tour of the U.S.A (2022) and Ireland (2023) and forthcoming tours of China and Australia, DINOSAUR WORLD LIVE has delighted critics and audiences alike, from all ages 3 and above.


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 favorite 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!


The 2024 North American touring cast presents: Selin Balcioglu (Miranda), Gary Mitchinson (Puppeteer / Puppet Captain & Puppet Technician), James Blake-Butler (Puppeteer / Puppet Technician), Daisy Franks (Puppeteer / Understudy Miranda), Ross Lennon (Puppeteer) and William Uden (Puppeteer).

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