Jefferey-Mohr Family Dentistry presents the ultimate play date! Erth's Dinosaur Zoo Live guides your family on a breathtaking tour through pre-historic Australia. You'll observe, meet and interact with an eye-popping collection of amazingly life-like dinosaurs and other creatures presented in a theatrical performance that will thrill and entertain kids while stimulating their imaginations in ways that will forever connect them to their world. Brought to life by a team of skilled performers and puppeteers and designed with the help of professional paleontologists, Erth's Dinosaur Zoo Live's puppets are so extraordinarily realistic you may feel the urge to run and hide – but don't! Because you won't want to miss a minute of this fun, unique, entertaining and educational live show created by Erth Visual & Physical of Sydney, Austrailia. While it may indeed have been 65 million years in the making, we think you'll agree, it's well worth the wait.
Since its beginnings in 1990, Erth has sought to provide audiences with eye popping visual experiences, giant puppetry, stilt-walkers, inflatable environments, aerial and flying creatures. In demand for events and festivals, the Company inspires audiences with their unique and dynamic vision. Erth has built an Australia wide, and increasingly international reputation based on exceptional work and a distinctive visual aesthetic. Erth's signature production, Erth's Dinosaur Zoo is consistently touring through North America, UK and Australia with multiple teams touring simultaneously. Erth's productions have been presented all around Australia, in venues large and small, from community halls in the remote outback to the Sydney Opera House. Erth is renowned for construction of stunning puppets of all scales, and frequently undertakes bespoke commissions for museums, zoos, theatre producers and festivals around Australia.
