Summer Musical - Doctor Dolittle


Book, Music, and Lyrics by Leslie Bricusse 

Based on the Doctor Dolittle Stories by Hugh Lofting and the Twentieth Century Fox film.


Directed by Stephen Houtz

Musical Director Melissa Warhol

Choreographer Brianna Belland

We are pleased to bring to the outdoor amphitheater stage at Staring Lake Park the classic tale of a wacky but kind Doctor who can talk to animals. The show takes the audience on a journey from the small English village of Puddleby-in-the-Marsh to the far corners of the world. Doctor Dolittle is wrongly accused of murder and, once pronounced innocent, continues with his search for the Great Pink Sea Snail--the oldest and wisest of the creatures on earth.
