The creators of Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo Live are returning to the Norton Center to take families on an all new adventure — this time to the bottom of the ocean.  Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium Adventure is an immersive experience that invites you to jump in and explore unknown ocean depths where prehistoric marine reptiles lived eons ago.

“The Norton Center saw tremendous success in 2017, when it presented Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo,” said Norton Center Executive Director Steve Hoffman. “We are thrilled to bring to our community their next show, that takes audiences of all ages underwater to explore huge prehistoric creatures using giant ‘realistic’ puppets.  This is a must-see for anyone who loves dinosaurs and the chance to see them up close.”

Erth’s shows are at the forefront of family entertainment, using actors, technology, puppets, science, and imagination to create an amazing visual experience that connects young audiences to the real science of paleontology.

Since its beginning in 1990, Erth has bridged the gap between culture and theatre by taking their box of tricks, including puppetry and computer generated imagery, into museum environments to promote engaging experiences indicative of Australian culture.

This performance is recommended for all ages; children 3 and up may gain the most. Please note that everyone who enters the theatre needs a ticket, including those that will occupy your lap.


Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium Adventure will be coming to Centre College’s Norton Center for the Arts on April 5, at 7 p.m. in Newlin Hall. Tickets: at, (859) 236-4692.
