Family shows added to Utilita Drive-In events

Dick and Dom, Dinosaur World Live and The Tiger Who Came to Tea have been added to the Utilita Live From The Drive-In shows at the Royal Highland Centre, Ingliston.

The three family shows will play during the first week of August, Tue 4 to Sun 9, – which is the last week of the school summer holidays. All shows are at 11am or 2pm and tickets are per car, not the number of occupants.

Dick & Dom and Dinosaur World Live will be playing the Drive-In

Dinosaur World Live, the life-size puppet dinosaur extravaganza plays Tue 4/Wed 5, BAFTA award-winning duo Dick & Dom play on Fri 7, and the adaptation of Judith Kerr’s The Tiger Who Came To Tea is on Sat 8/Sun9.

The shows are part of a series of gigs and musical events running at the Highand Centre from August 1. The drive-in element is designed to allow them to comply with all Covid-19 distancing guidelines.

Each car is allocated a parking space in front of the stage. Its occupants can get out and party or picnic or just sit in their own chairs within the confines of the parking space.

The show introduces Miranda, daughter of palaeontologists, who grew up surrounded by dinosaurs on a far-away island off the coast of South America. She has brought her pre-historic pals to our shores and would love you to meet them. Warning: some of these dinosaurs aren’t as docile as they seem!
Using puppetry to bring remarkably life-like dinosaurs to the stage, the show presents a host of impressive pre-historic creatures including every child’s favourite flesh-eating giant, the Tyrannosaurus Rex, along with a Giraffatitan, Microraptor, Segnosaurus and Triceratops.

Hard to believe that the BAFTA winning entertainment duo will have been going for 25 years next year. But this year they are celebrating the easing of lockdown with some socially distanced gigs as part of the Drive-In.

Based on the book about teatime mayhem by Judith Kerr and directed by David Wood, this family show is packed with magic, sing-along-songs and clumsy chaos.

The doorbell rings just as Sophie and her mummy are sitting down to tea. Who could it possibly be? What they certainly don’t expect to see at the door is a big, stripy tiger!
