Animal Musical Magic With Dr Dolittle Jr at Newport’s Dolman Theatre

Sharon Higgins Musical Theatre present their annual show this Spring with a classic tale of kindness to animal’s trots, crawls and flies via Doctor Dolittle Jr, the big Broadway-sized family musical!

Directed by André-Paul Spring, musical direction by Victoria Bryant and choreography by Sharon Higgins, all the characters audiences have loved through the stories of Hugh Lofting and the magical movie musical are given new life in this exciting 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.

With music and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse, Doctor Dolittle Jr features stage hits such as “If I Could Talk To The Animals”, a talented cast of young performers, many of which recently appeared in Centrestage Cymru’s musical production of Annie”.

Don’t miss this fabulous show which comes to Newport’s Dolman Theatre from May 31 to June 1 2019.
