Outdoor theatre at Killerton
More information

Join Illyria theatre this summer on the lawn for this much-loved, funny and exciting family adventure of Doctor Dolittle.

When Dr John Dolittle of Puddleby-on-the-Marsh is taught by his wise old parrot Polynesia how to talk to animals, news of his skills spreads far and wide.

Soon animals across the world send messages asking for his help. So he buys a leaky old ship and, together with his trusty pet-crew of Jip the dog, Chee-Chee the monkey, Dab-Dab the Duck and permanently hungry Gub-Gub the pig, sets forth on a mission to heal illness, spread compassion and gain a greater understanding of the animal kingdom.​

Running time (approximately): 1hr 50mins (including 20 minute interval)

Suitable for ages 5+ (younger children also welcome). Free for children under 3.

Assistance dogs only.
