Dear Zoo Image

Join Ben…and his friend Sally…as they wait to see what the Zoo will send when they get Ben’s letter asking for a pet. All kinds of familiar animals big and small arrive…but will they make a good pet? Well…..wait and see!

This production will delight all those who have read the book (both young and old) as it unfolds with child-engaging puppets, music and lots of audience interaction.

Dear Zoo, by author and illustrator Rod Campbell has delighted generations of young readers since it was first published in 1982, and has sold more than 8 million copies worldwide

The play is for children aged 2 years and upwards.

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.

A wonderful introduction to the stage and live theatre for young children aged 2-7 and their families.
