audition notice - DR. DOLITTLE JR. - Fountain Hills Theater - December 12 & 13

Dr Dolittle Jr. tells the classic tale of a wacky, but kind, doctor who can talk to animals, taking the audience on a journey from the small English village of Puddleby-on-the-Marsh to the far corners of the world. When Doctor Dolittle attempts to help a seal named Sophie, he’s wrongly accused of murder and stands trial before General Bellowes. Once pronounced innocent, Dolittle is free to continue with his search for the Great Pink Sea Snail, the oldest & wisest of the creatures on earth.
