Great Barrington, Mass.— The Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center will present Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo Live family-friendly show on Thursday, March 23 at 10:00am. “Hang on to your seats! Dinosaur Zoo Live is a mesmerizing and unforgettable experience,” said Mahaiwe Executive Director Beryl Jolly.
Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo Live takes the audience on a tour through prehistoric Australia, bringing an eye-popping array of ancient creatures to life on stage. Audience members will observe, meet, and interact with a collection of amazingly life-like dinosaurs and other creatures presented in a theatrical performance that entertains children while stimulating their imaginations.
Brought to life by a team of skilled performers and puppeteers, and designed with the help of professional paleontologists, the production’s puppets are extraordinarily realistic. Erth Visual & Physical of Sydney, Australia, created this fun educational show. Since its beginnings in 1990, Erth has sought to provide audiences with spectacular visual experiences: giant puppetry, stilt-walkers, inflatable environments, aerial and flying creatures. In demand for events and festivals, the company inspires audiences with their unique and dynamic vision. Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo is consistently touring through North America, UK, and Australia with multiple teams touring simultaneously.
The Mahaiwe’s education programs are made possible with support from Berkshire Bank, Cain Hibbard & Myers PC, the Feigenbaum Foundation, and the Dr. Robert C. and Tina Sohn Foundation.
Tickets are $6 for students with school groups and $10 per person for the general public. This production is recommended for kids ages five and up.
