A fantastic undersea adventure awaits the whole family with Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium Adventure, coming to Hatfield Hall, Saturday, February 8, at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.

You’ll be face-to-face with long-extinct undersea reptiles when Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium Adventure comes to Hatfield Hall for two shows on Saturday, February 8.

With performances starting at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., the Australia-based Erth team will bring fascinating creatures from the deepest parts of the ocean to vivid life through technology, puppetry, actors and science. From the breathtakingly enormous Kronosaurus to much more modest sea creatures, Erth’s Prehistoric Aquarium Adventure will make you feel as if you are drifting through the deepest parts of the ocean alongside reptiles that lived 100 million years ago.

“This is an unforgettable show for the whole family,” says Dan Tryon, director of student performing arts and manager of Rose-Hulman’s Hatfield Hall. “Kids will love it so much, they won’t realize they’re actually learning some cool science at the same time.”

Since forming in 1990, Erth has given audiences glimpses into the prehistoric past using giant puppets, stilt walkers, inflatable environments and other incredible special effects. The troupe performed their award-winning Dinosaur Zoo adventure at Hatfield Hall in 2014.

Tickets are $27 for adults and $17 for those under 18. A VIP experience is also available for $50 that includes a preshow meet and greet and an onstage tour.
