The eccentric doctor who talks to the animals is set to bring his unique brand of entertainment to the Grand at Wolverhampton. Mark Williams, who stars as Doctor Dolittle, has appeared in 101 Dalmatians, The Borrowers, Shakespeare in Love and seven of the Harry Potter films, and he’ll be appearing at the Grand from Tuesday 29 January to Saturday 9 February, with performance times at 2.30pm and 7.30pm.
This new production of ‘Doctor Dolittle the Musical’, with music and lyrics by double Academy Award-winner Leslie Bricusse, is part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of the original film starring Rex Harrison. Follow the eccentric doc as he embarks on an extraordinary adventure to find the Giant Pink Sea Snail that holds the secret of life, helped by his human companions and an exotic menagerie of animal friends, including the Pushmi-Pullyu and his trusty sidekick Polynesia the parrot.
The show is produced by Music & Lyrics Limited, the producers behind the highly successful recent tours of ‘The Addams Family’, ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’, ‘Oklahoma!’, ‘Fiddler on the Roof’, ‘High Society’ and ‘The King and I’, in association with Churchill Theatre Bromley.
