Spokeswoman Lorraine McGregor said: “Bigger and better than ever, the dangerously-explosive school holiday treat will be at The Hawth this August.

“Audiences will be able to get closer to the action than ever before as this interactive family show goes behind the scenes of many favourite blockbuster films to discover the science and secrets of creating movie magic.

“Live on stage, the show’s team will give a revealing insight into the world of special effects, taking families on an exciting journey as they feel the heat of an onstage inferno, marvel at gruesome sci-fi monsters, are blown away by apocalyptic weather and hold on tight through huge explosions.

“The Hollywood Special Effects Show uses more pyrotechnics than any other UK touring theatre show, and for some sequences, the audience is protected by bullet-proof glass placed across the stage. The animatronic dinosaur that appears in the show was built by specialists in Japan, and the large air cannon used in the finale of the show is capable of firing a projectile over a whopping 500 metres.
