EVERYONE'S favourite pre-historic entertainer will shuffle into the Ipswich Civic Centre in what promises to be an early Christmas present for city kids.

Dorothy the Dinosaur and friends will perform two shows on December 19.

Arts committee chairman Cr Charlie Pisasale said Dorothy the Dinosaur and her Wiggly friends would join Santa Claus for the exciting Christmas show Dorothy the Dinosaur's Christmas Spectacular.

"This delightful show written by Blue Wiggle Anthony Field is Dorothy's biggest show yet," Cr Pisasale said.

"Dorothy will be joined by her friends Captain Feathersword, Wags the Dog and Henry the Octopus, to sing your favourite festive Wiggles' hits including Go Santa Go, before being joined by Santa Claus himself who will sing Christmas songs including Jingle Bells and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer."

Cr Pisasale said a second show had been booked due to popular demand.

"The show is presented in a 'cushion concert' open-floor plan for families to make the most of the dancing fun that is bound to get your tinsel toes tapping," he said.

"Tickets are selling like Hot Potatoes so be sure to book as soon as possible, with tickets on sale for the first show at 10am and the second show at 12.30pm."
