The Adventures of Doctor Dolittle by Illyria Theatre

Illyria Theatre are returning to Chiswick House with their new fun-filled family musical!

Hugh Lofting’s timeless classic celebrates empathy, inspiring us all to see the world through the eyes of animals.

Doctor Dolittle leads a simple life as a village doctor. But one day, with the help of his wise old parrot Polynesia, he makes an extraordinary discovery: that he can talk to animals!

This funny, exciting new family musical is performed with flair and wit by Illyria in the great outdoors.

Illyria’s mission is simple: to create outstandingly enjoyable theatre and make it available for everyone. They’ve been pursuing this mission for over thirty years, performed for more than a million people, and intend to entertain families across the country for many more seasons to come.
