Description:

The famous Doctor lights up the stage in this magical tale of adventure, unlikely friendships and talking animals.

The classic tale of kindness to animals trots, crawls and flies onto the stage in Doctor Dolittle, the big Broadway-sized family musical. All of the characters we've come to love through the stories of Hugh Lofting and the magical movie musical are given new life in the stage version.
The musical tells the classic tale of a wacky but kind Doctor who can talk to animals. The show takes the audience on a journey from the small English village of Puddleby-on-the-Marsh to the far corners of the world. Doctor Dolittle is wrongly accused of murder and, once pronounced innocent, continues with his search for the Great Pink Sea Snail – the oldest and wisest of the creatures on earth.

Character roles will be expanded in the coming weeks prior to auditions. 

Based on The Doctor Dolittle Stories by Hugh Lofting and the Twentieth Century Fox film.
