WHAT’S ON: Popular children’s book is heading to The Civic as a reimagined theatre show!

Roustabout Theatre’s stage adaptation of Michael Foreman’s ‘Dinosaurs and All That Rubbish’ will play The Civic, Barnsley, on Saturday 6 November 2022.

The show is all about one man’s passionate dream to find his paradise beyond the stars that leaves the world in ruins. But the question is, can the dinosaurs who sleep deep underground wake up in time to sort out the mess and save Planet Earth?

This wildly imaginative retelling of the popular childrens book, that's celebrating it's 50th anniversary, is delivering the important message of ecological awareness; that tbe Earth belongs to EVERYONE, not parts of it to certain people.

Having sold more than 150,000 copies world-wide, the books Multi-award-winning writer and illustrator, Michael Foreman, said: “When I wrote, and illustrated, Dinosaurs and All That Rubbish in 1972, it was because of the growing threat to the environment. I never imagined the book would be even more relevant fifty years later, and I am delighted that director Toby Hulse and Roustabout are bringing it to a wider audience.”

Alongside the underlying green message, Roustabout’s signature silliness will abound in this vibrant musical show which promises to having audiences tapping their toes!

Originally commissioned as a digital production by Watermans, Dinosaurs and All That Rubbish was shortlisted for Best Theatre for Children, OFFIE Awards 2022 - so get yourself ready for a exciting hour of dancing dinosaurs, space travel and catch songs!
