I wrote to the Zoo to send me a pet and they sent me a... Ben and Sally are searching for the perfect pet, but instead the zoo send a far too big elephant, a far too grumpy camel, and a far too jumpy frog. Whatever will they send next! Rod Campbell's much-loved lift the flap book has been a firm favourite with children and parents for nearly forty years. Lovingly adapted for the stage, his distinctive illustrations leap from the page in this colourful show packed full of puppetry, songs and, of course, all the animals from the zoo. With lots of laughs and audience interaction, Dear Zoo is the perfect introduction to theatre for young children. Join us and find out whether the zoo will send the perfect pet...in the end! #DearZooLive 'A must-see for fans of the book, and for any young child who likes animals!' ***** Whatsgoodtodo.co.uk '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.' ***** Entertainmentviews.co.uk • The play is for children aged 2 years and upwards. • This family favourite is brought to life by Norwell Lapley Productions. • Rod Campbell's well known children's books with their simple, distinctive drawings and often repetitive text engage young children in learning to read and gaining confidence in their reading ability.
