Erth’s widely acclaimed show takes audiences into a new dimension of theatre.

Journey back in time and meet awesome prehistoric creatures, from cute baby dinos to some of the largest carnivores and herbivores that have ever walked the planet, in this uniquely entertaining and educational performance experience.

The amazing array of creatures from bygone eras are unmistakably ‘alive’ and mostly friendly! Students will have the opportunity to get up close and personal while connecting to the real science of palaeontology, and having loads of fun along the way.

Experience the thrill of this highly imaginative work.
