Diggery Digger's Dino Adventure Now In 3D

Program description

While Paleontologist Diggery Diggers is showing his fossils to a live audience, he discovers a “top secret” box the museum accidentally packed. Curious, Diggery opens the box and unleashes the DinoSauroScope 3000 or DINA taking the audience back into time to interact with dinosaurs. All is well until they use DINA on a large dinosaur egg. The egg hatches and an amazing thing happens. The dinosaurs in museums around the world start to come alive! The only way to stop this dinosaur regeneration is to return the baby dinosaur back to it’s mother. Come along for a rocking dino adventure with Diggery and save the human race.
The show has incredible props including large interactive animated characters, dinosaur bones, a giant dinosaur egg and beautiful puppets. Combined with intriguing magic and rocking music, this is the Story Ship’s most memorable adventure. Audience members constantly interact by digging up fossils, scanning with the DINA, helping solve puzzles and singing songs.
Only you can help stop the dinosaur invasion and save the world! Book a show now!?
