Riverbank Productions brand new show tells the story of Dr John Dolittle MD whose parrot, Polynesia, teaches him how to speak to animals! Of course this enables him to become a first-class animal doctor. One day a monkey from Africa arrives and asks him if he can journey to his homeland to find a cure for a colony of monkeys with a dreadful disease. So, accompanied by his trusty friends, Dab-Dab the duck, Gub Gub the pig, Too Too the owl and Jip the dog, Dr Doolittle embarks on an unforgettable journey to Africa and the adventure begins. Some of the animals in the production are played by puppets and others by actors. As well as all the animals and the doctor himself, you may expect to meet such characters as Princess Bumpo, some swarthy pirates and a short sighted horse! Featuring new songs, especially composed for the production, sing-a-long favourites, humour and lots of joining in Dr Doolittle is the ideal show for all the family.
