THE ADVENTURES OF DR DOLITTLE, BY HUGH LOFTING. OPEN AIR THEATRE PERFORMANCE by Illyria.

On Castle Kennedy Gardens beautiful lawns, Illyria will bring to life Hugh Lofting’s ’The Adventures of Dr Dolittle’. A funny, much loved and exciting adventure, with a strong message about responsibility and the environment.

Dr John Dolittle of Puddleby-on-the-Mash starts out as a human doctor. But once he is taught by his wise old parrot Polynesia how to talk to animals he becomes the most celebrated veterinary doctor. Word of his skills spreads and animals across the world send messages asking for his help. So he buys a leaky old ship and, together with his trusty pet-crew, sets forth on a mission to heal illness, rights wrongs and gain a greater understanding of the animal kingdom.

Picnic with family and friends in the picturesque surrounds of Castle Kennedy Gardens for the perfect evening of magical theatre in beautiful surroundings. A marquee is provided if the weather is unfavourable. The Tearoom is open for refreshments and light snacks. Picnics are welcome. Low back chairs, rugs and insect repellent are recommended. Performance starts at 6.00pm, grounds open from 5.00pm
