Home / Events / Dr. Dolittle Jr.

The doctor is in, and he doesn’t just talk to animals

Book by Leslie Bricusse
Music and Lyrics by Leslie Bricusse
Based on the Doctor Dolittle stories by Hugh Lofting and The Twentieth Century Fox film.

The classic tale of kindness to animals trots, crawls and flies onto the stage in Doctor Dolittle JR with the kids of the Children’s Theatre Arts program with the Playhouse Family Theatre!

This musical tells the classic tale of a wacky, but kind, doctor who can talk to animals, taking the audience on a journey from the small English village of Puddleby-on-the-Marsh to the far corners of the world. When Doctor Dolittle attempts to help a seal named Sophie, he’s wrongly accused of murder and stands trial before General Bellowes. Once pronounced innocent, Dolittle is free to continue with his search for the Great Pink Sea Snail – the oldest and wisest of the creatures on earth.

Bring the kids dressed in their Halloween best; we’re having a costume contest at intermission of every show!


Friday @ 7pm  |  Saturday @ 1pm & 4pm  |  Sunday @ 2pm
