Churchill Theatre Bromley present 
Doctor Dolittle

You've never seen anything like it! Doctor Dolittle returns to the stage in Leslie Bricusse's acclaimed family musical.

Join the eccentric Doctor, his human companions and his exotic menagerie of animal friends on an extraordinary adventure to find the Giant Pink Sea Snail, that holds the secret of life and making the world a happier place. With help from the Pushmi-Pullyu and his trusty sidekick Polynesia the parrot, the larger-than-life Doctor Dolittle teaches us not only to talk to the animals but to listen to them as well!

Based on the popular 1967 film with Rex Harrison, this stage version has music, book and lyrics by Leslie Bricusse.  From the producers of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, this production promises stunning visual puppetry and fun for all the family.

Joining Doctor Dolittle on his exciting journey is the hilarious Vicky Entwistle (Coronation Street, Ackley Bridge, Les Misérables) as his trusty side-kick Polynesia with more star casting to be announced!

Book, Music and Lyrics by LESLIE BRICUSSE
