Overview

A Freckle Productions Production in association with Rose Theatre 

Directed by Katie Beard and Bobby Delaney 

 

Based on the book by Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler

THE CREW ARE BACK FOR ANOTHER ROAR-SOME ADVENTURE!

Zog, super keen student turned air-ambulance, still lands with a bang-crash-thump. Together with his Flying Doctor crew, Princess Pearl and Sir Gadabout, they tend to a sunburnt mermaid, a unicorn with one too many horns and a lion with the flu. However, Pearl’s uncle, the King, has other ideas about whether princesses should be doctors, and she’s soon locked up in the castle back in a crown and a silly frilly dress!

With a bit of help from some friends and half a pound of cheese, can Pearl make her uncle better and prove princesses can be doctors too?

Based on Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s bestselling sequel, Freckle Productions (Zog, Stick Man, Tiddler & Other Terrific Tales) are back, with music and lyrics by Joe Stilgoe (Zog), for this truly modern take on the classic fairy tale.

Most suitable for ages 3+ but all ages welcome. Babes in arms tickets can be added at checkout.

The BSL interpreted performance on Fri 23 Feb (1.30pm) will be interpreted by Jenna Johnson.
