Following a highly successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2016, Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs 2: The Magic Cutlass sets sail on a UK tour.
Les Petits Theatre Company (Adventures in Wonderland) return to the high seas after their hugely successful and award-winning Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs (winner of the Primary Times Children’s Choice Award 2012) rollicked the rigging and spliced the mainbrace!
The Magic Cutlass is the hugely anticipated sequel based on the award-winning book by Giles Andreae and Russell Ayto.
When Flinn, Pearl and Tom are in the middle of their school play their old nemesis, Mr T the T-Rex, appears and kidnaps the children forcing them to hunt for the elusive Magic Cutlass – a sword that grants the holder any wish. The children are whisked away for another fantastic adventure to a world of devious dinosaurs, deep sea dangers and smelly sausages. It’s all aboard, me hearties, for a real life pirate adventure! Will fearless Flinn be able to outwit the pirate dinosaurs? Will Pirate Pearl be brave enough to battle the dangerous dinos and will terrified Tom be back in time for tea? All aboard for a non- stop action-packed theatrical experience with live music by the amazing Tom Recknell and dastardly dinosaur puppets by the genius Max Humphries!
Writer Oliver Lansley comments:
We have had such fun revisiting the world of Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs – this show is even bigger, better and sillier than the first. We have a ten- foot Tyrannosaurus rex, an exploding sausage machine and an actual magic cutlass – what’s not to love? The show has been selling out and receiving rave reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe and we can’t wait to take it on tour.
Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs 2: The Magic Cutlass is brought to life by Les Petits, the exciting children’s theatre company from the team behind internationally-acclaimed theatre company, Les Enfants Terribles (Dinner at the Twits, The Game’s Afoot and Alice’s Adventures Underground).
Les Petits transport the Les Enfants Terribles’ aesthetic to their family-friendly shows to create a production which is enjoyed by adults and children alike.
