What to Expect at the Dinosaur Show at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre

You may have been to the theatre before, but you won’t have experienced anything quite like the dino live show that’s currently playing at the Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre. This popular production is great fun for the whole family, so here’s what to expect on the big day.

Roarsome Puppetry

Dinosaur World Live uses spectacular puppetry to bring life-like dinosaurs to the stage. You’ll come face-to-face with not one but two T-Rexes - an adult and a baby - plus the three-horned Triceratops who is certainly a favourite with many of the younger guests. There’s also a host of other prehistoric beasts including Giraffatitan, Segnosaurus, Microrator and more. The way the dinosaur puppets move and interact is intricate and enchanting. Head along to Regent’s Park to see them in action for yourself - you won’t be disappointed!

Audience Interaction

Dinosaur World Live has been carefully scripted to keep little ones entertained. It’s only 50 minutes long, created for children aged three and over, and offers plenty of audience interaction to boost engagement. Lucky audience members are asked to feed and groom some of the Jurrassic beasts, with a meet and greet after the show being a production highlight. If your little ones aren’t yet brave enough to get up on stage, they can simply sit back and watch the others have a go.

A Show Loaded with Information

Miranda is the host of the show. She lives on a remote island and talks guests through all things dinosaur. She’s wonderfully enthusiastic, full of energy and really captures the attention of little ones. As each creature makes its on-stage debut, Miranda introduces them and loads the audience up with interesting facts for the ultimate dinosaur experience. At the end of each dino introduction, a child can go and stroke, brush and feed the dinosaur on stage.

Plenty of Dramatic Stage Production

As if the huge, life-like puppets aren’t dramatic enough, the show is also brought to life with atmospheric lighting, music and smoke. The children are also encouraged to scream at Titus the Tyrannosaurus to go back in his cage and this is all made more intense with clever stage production and realistic props. Dinosaur World Live goes above and beyond to be as realistic as possible but it’s designed for younger kids so it isn’t particularly scary. It might just be worth reminding smaller children that the puppets aren’t real, so their imaginations don’t take over.

An Open Air Theatre Experience

The show itself is incredible. But you also get to benefit from an open air theatre experience. With the birds chirping overhead and the wind gently brushing your face on a summer’s day, this is an experience you’ll remember for a lifetime. The theatre is located within the picturesque region of Regent’s Park, away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Walking with dinosaurs is a great way to spend a day in London. Where else can you see realistic Jurassic beasts live on stage and even get to meet them up close? Book your tickets to Dinosaur World Live today and enjoy a day out to remember.
