Captain Flinn And The Pirate Dinosaurs (Les Petits Theatre Company, Greenwich Theatre and Underbelly productions)

By | Published on Wednesday 14 August 2013

Captain Flinn and his friends find themselves flung into a magical adventure on the high seas, fighting pirate dinosaurs and reclaiming lost ships. This show has all the right ingredients to entertain a child (or a whole theatre-full, as was the case); fast-paced and exciting action, humour, singing and dancing, and intense overacting. Oh, and a huge talking dinosaur. The children responded well to the ‘pantomime’ aspects of the show; calling out when prompted and trying to warn Flinn and his friends of the dinosaurs lurking behind them, and at times the room was full of excited laughter. The enthusiasm of the performers was infectious, and it seemed to engage the children the whole way through.

Underbelly Bristo Square, until 26 Aug (not 12), 3.00pm.
