Illyria – The Adventures of Doctor Dolittle
£14.00 / £7.00 (U16s)
31 May 2018 | 5pm
Venue: Cavendish Pavilion Grounds, Bolton Abbey
In the beautiful setting of the Cavendish Pavilion Grounds at Bolton Abbey, IlIyria will bring to life Hugh Lofting’s The Adventures of Doctor 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, 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.
The show is suitable for cheeky monkeys aged 5+.
