"The story of a little girl and a newly-hatched dinosaur has a spellbinding effect in Spike!"

Starcatchers presents Spike – a dinosaur tale by Andy Cannon and David Trouton

SPIKE! a dinosaur tale

Mary Anne lives in an ordinary little town
with an extraordinary museum.

There’s
rockets and planes
boats and trains
tigers and sloths
butterflies and moths
and a dinosaur egg………

Spike is the wonderful story of a little girl, her grandmother and her favourite dinosaur – powerfully told through theatrical storytelling and dance.

Spike is a brand-new show with original music about the passing of time and the tales that bring families together.
