Illyria is back!
Doctor Dolittle leads a simple life as a village doctor. But one day, with the help of his wise old parrot Polynesia, he makes an extraordinary discovery: that he can talk to animals! Hugh Lofting’s timeless classic celebrates empathy and inspires us all to see the world through the eyes of animals. This funny, exciting new family musical is performed with flair and wit by Illyria in the great outdoors.

By Hugh Lofting. Adapted by Oliver Grey. Presented by Illyria.

Running time (approx): 1hr 50mins (including 20 minute interval). Suitable for ages 5+

Sponsored by Elstob Auctioneers
