A show for anybody between the ages of 5 and 100, ERTH Dinosaur Zoo Live will travel back millions of years to take audiences on a journey through prehistoric Australia. Happening at the Long Center Tuesday, June 17 – Sunday, June 22, ERTH will allow children and adults the opportunity to experience dinosaurs through amazing, state-of-the-art puppetry.

This is an interactive show where children will get the chance to feed, water, and care for the prehistoric dinosaurs as they are invited to gather right around the stage. Since these creatures are actually people-powered puppets, they can respond instantaneously to audiences. Hatchlings might beg for a quick scratch behind an ear, or the T-Rex could scare the crap out of your kid (in a good way) in a teeth-gnashing contest.

ERTH is an Australian company that originally started creating and building dinosaurs for museums. A few years ago, they decided to bring their creations into the streets for an impromptu performance and it’s been wowing audiences ever since.

Note from Do512 Family editor -> Jamie Jett here. I went to this show last year and it was a blast! If you can make it, I highly recommend that you go. There was a ton of interaction with every kid in the audience. It was engaging, fun and educational. Don’t miss it!
