I went to this fabulous show today. My plus-1 date today is a very big fan of all things dinosaur and was "I'm very exciting" to go see the show with me!

The Speakeasy tent at Gluttony was pretty close to being full. Not a bad turn out for just the second day of the Fringe Festival! I mean - what child doesn't have a fascination with dinosaurs?

The show is an articulate, entertaining, educational and extremely funny mix of the science of dinosaurs and comedy.

The two presenters in pith helmets and safari suits took us on a time travel adventure - we went way way back. Back to the age of the dinosaurs. Their presentation was great - they totally engaged with the audience and the language and theatrics were totally on par with the age group that this show is targeted at. My 4-year-old grandson thought the show was brilliant - he talked non-stop about it all the way home.

I spoke to another audience member as she was leaving and she told me that she had immediately posted about the show on her Facebook page with a very strong recommendation to all of her family and friends to be sure to see this show. I agreed with her!

The show is marketed for the 3-9 age group and for those who just love an entertaining science show, like me!

Dinosaur Time Machine is good, really good. It's so good that it won the Best Children's Show in 2016 and we're in luck that it's returned to the Fringe Festival this year. It's funny and clever and there's even a bit of history and education thrown in. You can see the show at Gluttony on the corner of Rundle Street and East Terrace from the 17th of February to the 5th of March.

Tickets can be purchased online or at any of the Fringe Box Office outlets.

Take the kids and be prepared for a wild ride and watch out for the T-Rex!
