29th August 5.30pm start
When Doctor John Dolittle of Puddleby-on-the-Marsh is taught by his wise old parrot Polynesia how to talk to animals, news of his skills spreads far and wide. Soon animals across the world send messages asking for his help. So, he buys a leaky old ship and, together with his trusty pet-crew of Jip the dog, Chee-Chee the monkey, Dab-Dab the Duck and permanently hungry Gub-Gub the pig, sets forth on a mission to heal illness, spread compassion and gain a greater understanding of the animal kingdom.
A funny, much-loved and exciting adventure, with a strong message about responsibility towards animals and the environment, this show is created by the same Illyria team who brought you an entire menagerie of animal puppets in DANNY THE CHAMPION OF THE WORLD and a life-size T-Rex in THE LOST WORLD.
“We’ve just been to see the Inaugural show for Doctor Doolittle! Yey! From 2yrs to 52years, we all had a wonderful time. From puppets to lyrics, performance to storyline… it was great. Don’t miss it! I haven’t found a theatre company that I’ve been inspired by for some years. I’m looking forward to seeing more by them in future.”
The show is suitable for cheeky monkeys aged 5+.
Ticket Prices: Adult £14, Child £12, Family (2 + 2) £40,Concession (over 60’s) £12. Plus 5% online booking fee.
