Open air theatre - Doctor Dolittle

15.08.2021 15:00

On Sunday 15 August 2021 

The Friends of Harrow Weald Recreation Ground are proud to present an afternoon of outdoor theatre in the park!

'The Further Adventures of Doctor Dolittle' is a brand-new 2021 musical production by Illyria, offering professional theatre at its best. Illyria tour across the UK, Europe, Canada & the USA and we are delighted to welcome them, for the first time, to Harrow Weald!

This production is an adaptation of the wonderful Dr Dolittle books by Hugh Lofting with Jip the Dog, Dab Dab the Duck, Gub Gub the Pig and Polynesia the Parrot. Where in the world will they go? Which new animals will they help along the way? Will the Rats still have pithy observations to make? Is Gub Gub still dreaming about cake...? Come along and find out!

This production has a fully orchestrated score, amazing puppets and a plethora of songs that our audience can sing along to!

We open at 2 pm for a 3 pm start.

Running time is 1hr 40 mins with a 20 minute interval.
