Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs is on a whirlwind tour of the UK and calls in to Hemel Hempstead in a few weeks to entertain and delight little tots.

Based on the award winning popular book by Purple Ronnie creator Giles Andrea and Russell Ayto, the show is a non-stop action-packed theatrical experience with live music, puppetry, physical performance and dastardly dinosaurs.

Presented by Les Petits Theatre Company, the show is suitable for two-year-olds and upwards and will be at The Old Town Hall in Hemel Hemsptead on Saturday May 16 with performances at 11am and 2.30pm.

The show tells the swashbuckling tale of Flinn who discovers a pirate hiding in the school supply closet.

And then it’s all aboard me hearties for a real live pirate adventure!

Captain Stubble needs Flinn’s help to find his stolen ship, but there are some mean pirate dinosaurs on the loose and Flinn and his friends soon sail into trouble.

Will fearless Flinn be able to captain the ship and defeat the pirate dinosaurs?

Will Pirate Pearl be brave enough to battle the dangerous dinos ?

And will terrified Tom be back in time for tea?
