Dinosaur Detectives (5 years+)
Monday 27th March, 1.30pm – 2.30pm
The Dinosaur Detectives weave their way through the audience looking for clues about the past, they discover a secret doorway, inside there are a number of cases, cases that contain the stories of the people who discovered dinosaur bones in Victorian times. The Dinosaur Detectives follow a fascinating journey surrounding the first fossil finds of Mary Anning, William Buckland and Gideon Mantell.
Their finds changed the face of history. A performance with rod puppets, shadow play and large scale projections shows the fascination, fun and the conflict that surrounds the search for ‘Dinosaurs’. All the projections and puppetry are part of an open stage production. Clydebuilt also bring along a ‘Fossil Table’ for the end of the show where the audience can handle fossils including real bones and dinosaur Poo!
