Indie singer-songwriter MJ Hibbett has announced that he is offering schools, youth groups and amateur dramatic societies free performance rights to his lo-fi rock opera ‘Dinosaur Planet’.

First performed as a one-man show by Hibbett in 2009, ‘Dinosaur Planet’ has since expanded its cast (to two) and toured the country several times, including two runs at the Edinburgh Festival. This year Hibbett and his band The Validators also released an album version of it.

Says Hibbett: “I’ve always thought it would make a brilliant school play. The songs are very easy to play and sing along to, and making the giant robots and space dinosaurs would be a lot of fun! It also contains a lot of educational information, such as the need for good academic research methods, and ways not to get eaten by space dinosaurs”.
