Outdoor Theatre event - "The Further Adventures of Dr Dolittle"

Award Winning Outdoor Theatre Company Illyria brings The Further Adventures of Doctor Dolittle to Eyes Meadow, Duffield on 25th July, 2021 - the show starts at 2pm.

Tickets are now available at www.illyria.co.uk and cost £6.50 adult; £3 child (5-16), under 5s FREE (but still need a ticket - available on the website).

Following the phenomenal success of 2018's tour of The Adventures of Doctor Dolittle, Illyria is delving back into Hugh Lofting's amazing stories to bring you a brand-new musical adaptation of the Doctor's further adventures with Jip the Dog, Dab Dab the Duck, Gub Gub the Pig and Polynesia the Parrot.

The Further Adventures of Doctor Dolittle features a fully orchestrated score, amazing puppets and a plethora of songs that our audiences will be singing along to for years to come.

Now in its 30th year, Illyria has delighted audiences the length and breadth of the UK, and in the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, France, the United States and Canada performing some of the most well-loved productions on offer. The company has won 4 international "Best Performance" awards and attracted numerous "5-star" and "Critics' Choice" reviews for the lively clarity of its approach to Shakespeare's plays, the high quality of its family shows and the refreshingly quirky originality of its English classics adaptations and Gilbert & Sullivan musicals.
