We are delighted to report we have secured the performing rights for the wonderful musical ‘Dr Doolittle’ – which we will be staging at Kingsley Community Centre for five performances 23-26 January, 2019.

Best-known songs include ‘Talk to the Animals’ and ‘I’ve Never Seen Anything Like It!’.  (You may remember Rex Harrison in the title role.)

Auditions will be held on Sunday 21st October at Kingsley Community Centre.

5pm – Children from Year 9 and under.

6pm onwards – Adults and young people (Year 10 onwards).

No preparation necessary – just turn up on the day.

This production may give the wardrobe department some challenges but we will have lots of fun delivering a great show!

After two shows which won Cheshire Theatre Guild ‘Best Musical’ – we are going for the hat trick!

If you would like to be in the show but are unable to make the auditions, please get in touch with the director, Lynn Pegler.
