Author Rod Campbell’s best selling, classic lift-the-flap book, Dear Zoo was brought to life for the very first time in 2018 in a brilliant stage production Dear Zoo live on stage! The show was so popular that Dear Zoo has been touring ever since and will be in theatres around the UK this autumn. Dear Zoo, published by Macmillan Children’s Books, has delighted generations of young readers since it was first published in 1982 and has sold more than 8 million copies worldwide. The story of a child who writes to the zoo asking them to send a pet continues to delight each generation of children as they lift the flaps in search of the perfect animal.
Written by Rod Campbell, produced by Norwell Lapley Productions and directed by Michael Gattrell, Dear Zoo live on stage is suitable for children aged 2 – 6 years. Brought to life through child-engaging puppets, original music and lots of audience interaction, it will immediately appeal to families and children who already love the book and will serve as a wonderful introduction to those coming to the story for the first time.
The Dear Zoo live on stage! theatre tour will be in UK theatres from 2 September and full details are available at www.dearzooandfriends.com
