Theatre: The Adventures of Dr. Dolittle by Illyria – Sold Out
16 August, 2018at 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm£7 – £22
Join us this summer on our sea-view lawn for some award-winning theatre. This year we have teamed up with Illyria Theatre to bring you a performance of The Adventures of Dr. Dolittle.
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, set 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 Champion of the World and a life-size T-Rex in The Lost World.
Bring the little ones along to experience family-friendly theatre, settle down on their stunning sea-view lawn and enjoy the beautiful coastal surroundings. There will also be a well-stocked bar with plenty of food and drink to buy throughout the performances.

Time: 4:30pm – 7:30pm, performance starts at 5pm with a running time one hour and 40 minutes including a 20 minute interval.
