Dinosaurs heading to the Newark Place Theatre stage with Animal Guyz
Dinosaurs and a host of other wild animals are set to invade Newark’s Palace Theatre later this year — but don’t fear, there will be no risk to the audience.
The venue will host the Animal Guyz educational show on February 16.
The Animal Guyz put on events for families to learn, see and watch animals, without any live animals needing to be on stage.
They will introduce the audience to an elephant and its baby, a crocodile, a wolf, a shark, an orangutan, gorillas and a wolf, among others.
There will also be four different dinosaurs on the stage, including a triceratops with a baby.
It is certainly not a traditional animal show, but the Animal Guyz decided in 2020 that they would commit to delivering something that would entertain and educate all the family — without any live animals.
“It was five years in the making but we felt it was vital that we were able to show people everywhere different animals, help them learn and appreciate these amazing creatures, but do so in a way that meant we didn’t use real animals,” said Animal Guyz founder Craig Crowton.
“It’s an animal show that even a vegan will love.”
The disappearance of the animals and dinosaurs on stage will be revealed at the show, but the audience should enjoy sketches, songs and comedy as well as plenty of opportunities to learn and be educated about animals from all over the world.
“Our aim to deliver a show like no other and send people home thoroughly entertained and with loads more knowledge about animals.
“We cram so much in, even things like animal phobias, and we do it a fun way that means you’re learning without even realising it,” said Craig.
