Dinosaur World Live Announces New Cast For 2019 UK Tour

08 Mar 2019

Direct from the West End, Dinosaur World Live, the interactive children’s theatre show that brings dinosaurs to life on stage, today announces a brand new cast for its 2019 UK Tour.

Following a hugely successful national tour last year, including a smash-hit summer season at London’s Regent’s Park Theatre, Dinosaur World Live is back due to popular demand.

The 2019 UK tour opens on 12 March, visiting a further 32 venues nationwide. The 2019 cast includes: Lucy Varney (Miranda), Romina Hytten (Puppeteer / Understudy Miranda), Darcy Collins (Puppeteer / Puppet Captain), Gary Mitchinson (Puppeteer), Peter Twose (Puppeteer), Emily Cooper (Puppeteer / Puppet Technician).

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 favourite 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 and would love you to meet them. Warning: some of these dinosaurs aren’t as docile as they seem!

 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. Each performance is followed by a post-show meet and greet where audience members have the opportunity to meet some of the dinosaurs in person.

Due to incredible demand, some performances are already sold out, so dino-lovers are urged to book fast before tickets become extinct! 

Dinosaur World Live is written and directed by Derek Bond (Sweet Charity, Manchester Theatre Awards 2017 winner, Little Shop of Horrors Manchester Royal Exchange).

The creative team includes: Puppet Designer Max Humphries (National Theatre, Royal Opera House, Cirque de Soleil); Puppet Director Laura Cubitt (Running Wild, Chichester Festival Theatre; Don Quixote, RSC; War Horse NT Berlin); Puppetry Consultant Toby Olié (for the National Theatre: Elephantom, Peter Pan, The Light Princess, Hansel & Gretel, NT: 50 Years on Stage and also the original hind puppeteer of Joey in War Horse); Set & Costume Designer James Perkins; Lighting Designer John Maddox and Sound Designer Tom Mann. Produced by Nicoll Entertainment.
