Dear Zoo Live on Stage Banner - 'A superb theatrical production' Quote by My Theatre Mates

Dear Zoo Live!

The timeless children’s classic book returns to the stage!

See our characters write to the Zoo. Who will be delivered? A cheeky monkey, a jumpy frog and of course a perfect puppy.

Help your children learn as the book leaps onto the stage and share a magical experience as the story unfolds with child-engaging puppets, music and lots of audience interaction in this play perfect for children aged 2+.

 'A must-see for fans of the book, and for any young child who likes animals!’

‘A superb theatrical production’

★★★★★ My Theatre Mates

'This show is the perfect running time and there’s no interval, so momentum isn’t lost. If you’re looking for a family trip to the theatre, this is one of the best.'
