Billie and the Dinosaurs is a totally new and original Australian performance piece for a Narrator and Symphony Orchestra created by Tim Ferguson and Geoff Willis.
The 45 minute performance has a similar style to Prokofiev's ‘Peter & The Wolf’.
Although originally composed for Symphony Orchestra, it is also suitable for Youth Orchestras.
Billie and the Dinosaurs is aimed at audiences aged 5-12 but is also a very entertaining piece for everyone.
Billie is an outback Australian girl who runs away from school bullies. She falls through a mysterious waterfall and discovers a world of dinosaurs – Australian dinosaurs including the Muttaburrasaurus, Mythunga Camara, Australovenator and many more. Trouble starts when the dinosaurs follow Billie home to eat the bullies…
