Dinosaur Department Store

Energetic storytelling, bubbles and music! Join narrator Polly and LMP cellist Sebastian for a vibrant reimagining of The Dinosaur Department Store.

“Our feisty heroine Eliza Jane isn’t your average child. Instead of a cute, fluffy bunny, she has her heart firmly set on a prehistoric pet. Join Eliza Jane and her parents on a marvellous magical tour of their local dinosaur department store.”


Narrator Polly and harpist Sally.

“In the beginning, there were three colours… Reds, Yellows and Blues.

All special in their own ways, all living in harmony – until one day, a Red says “Reds are the best!” and starts a colour kerfuffle. When the colours decide to separate, is there anything that can change their minds?
