Hilarious Comedy Will Have You
Roaring With Laughter
Dinosaur Park (The Jurassic Parody)
South Shields Customs House
Thursday 21st July 2016
An award-winning parody of one of Hollywood’s most iconic movies stomps its way into a North East theatre this week. Dinosaur Park (The Jurassic Parody) is at The Customs House in South Shields on Thursday (July 21st).
This laugh-out-loud spin on Spielberg’s classic Jurassic Park was a total sell-out at The Edinburgh Fringe last summer.
Customs House Executive Director Ray Spencer said: “We can’t wait for Dinosaur Park to arrive. It has been loved by all who have seen it and it was a must have for our summer season. Thursday is the first day of the summer holidays so start the holidays on a high with a great family show. It’s also an apt start to our summer, which is jam-packed with first-rate comedy with the first South Tyneside Comedy Festival starting later in the month.”
Superbolt’s Dinosaur Park (The Jurassic Parody) has won five-star reviews, as well as awards for ‘outstanding new show’ and pick of the week, and picked up celebrity fans including Sam Neill.
Sam, who played Dr Alan Grant in the original Jurassic Park movie, tweeted: “Well, just saw 'Jurassic Park'-the play & it's BRILLIANT ! Hilarious, poignant, spot on - great @Superboltplays “
