WORLD PREMIERE – see this new youth & family audiences’ version first on the Coterie stage!
Eccentric Doctor Dolittle, a country physician, has learned to talk to animals—complicating his life and leading to trouble with authorities. Accompanied by his tutor and mentor, Polynesia (a 200-year-old parrot)—as well as a a trusty band of human and animal companions—the Doctor sets out to change the way animals are treated and understood in the world. The songs include “I’ve Never Seen Anything Like It,” “My Friend the Doctor,” and the marvelous Academy Award winning song, “Talk to the Animals.”
Friday, July 28th at 7:00pm is a Sensory Friendly performance, with modified lights and sound to make a more relaxed environment. We ask that our audience be flexible with their expectations so that neurodiverse audience members may interact with the story in the way that suits them best: which may include removing their mask, speaking, moving, or using devices throughout the performance. If you have questions about our Sensory Friendly performances or would like a copy of the Social Narrative that can be introduced before the show to help set expectations, please contact the Box Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 816-474-6552.
