One small step for man, one giant pile of rubbish left behind! Man’s dream to reach the stars leaves the world in ruins and disturbs the sleeping dinosaurs. Will they wake up and save planet Earth? 

From the creators of Luna and This Island’s Mine comes a new stage adaptation of Michael Foreman’s environmental tale, Dinosaurs and All That Rubbish.

An imaginative adaptation of Michael Foreman’s environmental tale with dancing dinosaurs, fuelled by rock’n’roll. This riotous hour, packed with signature Roustabout silliness, will have you tapping your toes from start to finish!

How we made it

In Summer 2021, Roustabout spent three weeks working with 90 Year 2 students across three primary schools in Bristol and Weston-Super-Mare to develop this brand new stage adaptation.

The students directly contributed to the song lyrics, dance moves and character development, helping us to create a universally appealing show for family audiences. The result is a riotous hour of toe- tapping music and signature Roustabout silliness.
