Winter / Spring 2017: Classes


"ELVES" (ages 4-5)

Dr. Dolittle loves animals, and he can actually talk to them! His cottage is home to a lion, a tiger and even a koala bear! Joining them are his long-time friends Dab-Dab the Duck, Trumpet the Elephant and Gub-Gub the Baby Pig. Soon Dr. Doolittle's fame spreads all the way to Africa where Squeak, Squeal and Screech the Monkeys need his help!

This musical is just right for non-readers who love to play-act and pretend. The class also plays lots of fun imagination games in a gentle environment.

So grab your doctor's bag. "DR. DOLITTLE" is a play that will really speak your language!
