Classic lift the flap children’s book live on stage

March 22, 2024

Audiences young and old will delight in a live stage adaptation of the classic lift the flap book, Dear Zoo, which comes to Theatre Royal Winchester from Saturday 06 April.

Dear Zoo tells the story of Ben and Sally who are searching for the perfect pet and write to the zoo to ask them to send one. But the zoo sends them a range of completely unsuitable animals. What will they be sent and will they ever receive the perfect pet?

This stage adaptation is based on children’s author, Rod Campbell’s beloved children’s picture book – and its distinctive colourful illustrations leap from page to stage. It is brought to the stage by Norwell Lapley Productions whose work tours the UK and world; and shows include an adaptation of Julia Donaldson’s Tales from Acorn Wood, The Sooty Show, Dom JolyThe Conspiracy Tour, Kate Mosse: Warrior Queens & Quiet Revolutionaries and Dr Richard Shepherd: Unnatural Causes.

Dear Zoo features puppetry, songs, lots of audience interaction and everyone’s favourite zoo animals. It is the perfect introduction to theatre for young children.

Dear Zoo will be at Theatre Royal Winchester from Saturday 06 – Sunday 07 April at various times. Recommended age: 1+. For more information or to book tickets visit theatreroyalwinchester.co.uk or call 01962 840 440.
