A matinée for dinosaur-lovers of all ages at the Bardavon in Poughkeepsie!

The Bardavon is pleased to present for dinosaur-lovers of all ages, and direct from Sidney, Australia: The Dinosaur Petting Zoo on Sunday, June 2 at 3pm., at the Bardavon. All seats for this one-hour production are just $10.

Erth – Visual and Physical Inc. has created this unusual interactive show featuring giant dino-sized puppets that take the audience on a thrilling journey through prehistoric Australia. Toothy T. Rex, the awe-inspiring Allosaur, the “wee” baby Dryosaurs, and more are brought to life through human-powered puppetry. And audience-members have the opportunity to join these long-lost wonders of the world onstage to touch, feed, and learn. It’s a unique chance to meet a menagerie of creatures that once roamed free around the Southern Hemisphere and are now in residence at the Petting Zoo.

Based in Sydney, Erth is a theater company that combines a unique aesthetic with performance through the use of large-scale puppets, stilts, inflatables, and aerial techniques. Erth has created over 12 productions and tours the world, performing at many major international festivals. Among them are the Sydney Olympic Games Opening Ceremony in 2000, the Singapore Arts Festival, the Shanghai World Expo and many more. The Dinosaur Petting Zoo is currently on a six-month U.S. tour that began in January.
