You’ve never seen anything like it! Doctor Dolittle returns to the stage in Leslie Bricusse’s acclaimed family musical.


Join the eccentric Doctor, his human companions and his exotic menagerie of animal friends on an extraordinary adventure to find the Giant Pink Sea Snail, that holds the secret of life and making the world a happier place. With help from the Pushmi-Pullyu and his trusty sidekick Polynesia the parrot, the larger-than-life Doctor Dolittle teaches us not only to talk to the animals but to listen to them as well!


Based on the popular 1967 film with Rex Harrison and featuring star of stage and screen Mark Williams (Harry Potter, Father Brown, Doctor Whoand The Fast Show) as Doctor Dolittle himself, this new stage version is brought to you from the producers of Chitty Chitty Bang Bangand promises stunning visual puppetry and fun for all the family.
