DINOSAURS will once again roam the earth in a spectacular new theatrical arena show, which starts its UK tour in July.

Walking With Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular, based on the award-winning BBC television series will see real size dinosaurs come to life and it’s coming to the Echo Arena Liverpool on August 19-23.

The show is brought to the UK by The Creature Production Company, an Australian company, headed by chief executive officer Carmen Pavlovic, in association with BBC Worldwide.

Pavlovic said: “The BBC series was a brilliant blend of special effects, escapism, excitement and information.ŠOur show brings together all of that, plus something extra – it’s live!ŠIn this production, 15 roaring, snarling “live” dinosaurs mesmerise the audience – and are as awe-inspiring as when they first walked on earth.

“The dinosaurs are life-size, making the show so immense, it could only fit in arenas. It’s a £10m arena spectacle of unprecedented size and quality, which captivates young and old alike.”

Tim Haines, creator and producer of the original BBC series, which was seen by a worldwide audience of 700 million, serves as project consultant to Walking With Dinosaurs – The Arena Spectacular.ŠThe series won six Emmy and three BAFTA Awards.

The production won the 2007 THEA Award for Outstanding Achievement in Touring Event.

Ten species are represented from the entire 200 million year reign of the dinosaurs, including the 36ft tall brachiosaurus, which is 56ft from nose to tail.Š
