About the Show

This classic tale of kindness to animals is based on the fantastical 1967 movie musical of the same name. Meet the 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.

Subscriptions, Flex Passes and Single Tickets will go on sale in 2021.
