Les Petis Theatre Company’s ‘Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs 2: The Magic Cutlass’ will be returning for a UK tour, which will be shown at the Churchill Theatre on February 12.

The hugely-anticipated sequel, which had a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2016, is based on the award-winning book by Giles Andrae and Russel Ayto, and will be touring from February to April.

The show follows Flinn, Pearl and Tom, who are are in the middle of their school play when their old nemesis Mr T the T-Rex appears and kidnaps the children, forcing them to hunt for the secretive Magic Cutlass - a sword that grants the holder any wish, and the children are whisked away for another fantastic adventure to a world of devious dinosaurs, deep sea dangers and smelly sausages.

Will fearless Flinn be able to outwit the pirate dinosaurs?

Will Pirate Pearl be brave enough to battle the dangerous dinos and will terrified Tom be back in time for tea?

All will be revealed in the nonstop, action packed theatrical experience, filled with live music, puppetry and dastardly dinosaurs, which promises to be as exciting as the first show.

Adapted by Oliver Lansley, the show is brought to life by Les Petits, the exciting children’s theatre company from the team behind the internationally-acclaimed Les Enfants Terribles (Alice’s Adventures Underground, The Terrible Infants, The Game’s Afoot).

Mr Lansley said: “We are delighted to be bringing back Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs 2: The Magic Cutlass - one of our favourite and most successful and critically acclaimed children’s shows.

“We believe it is so important to engage and excite children with their early experiences of theatre and what could be more exciting than pirates, dinosaurs and a giant sausage machine?”

Les Petits transport the Les Enfants Terribles’ aesthetic to their family-friendly shows to create a production which is enjoyed by both adults and children alike.

The show runs for 55 minutes with no interval, and the age recommendation is years three plus.

Tickets are available from individual theatre box office, see
