Z-arts present Stan: a powerful tale of friendship and dinosaurs starring Oxford Road Corridor’s very own Tyrannosaurus rex.
Sam is a happy, dinosaur-loving 8-year-old whose world turns upside down after his parents separate. As he takes himself off to the far end of the school field he meets Alex, a deaf girl with a vivid imagination – and an impressive collection of dinosaurs.
Bonding over boring packed lunches and their favourite fierce T-Rex, the pair form an unlikely friendship. When things at home become too difficult for Sam, Alex whisks him away on an astonishing adventure to meet the almighty Stan, the gigantic T-Rex at Manchester Museum.
Think Pixar’s Inside Out meets Night at the Museum!
