Zog and the Flying Doctors stage adaption to premiere in February ahead of tour

Zog and the Flying Doctors is to come to the stage from February.

A stage adaptation based on the book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler will premiere at Rose Theatre, Kingston prior to a UK Tour

Zog and the Flying Doctors is brought to the stage by Freckle Productions and Rose Theatre. The adaptation will be directed by Emma Kilbey with music from Stilgoe. Designs come from Lucy Bradridge and lighting design by Aaron J Dootson.

Zog, super keen student turned air-ambulance, still lands with a crash-bang-thump. With his Flying Doctor crew, Princess Pearl and Sir Gadabout, they tend to a sunburnt mermaid, a unicorn with one too many horns and a lion with the flu.

But Pearl’s uncle, the King, has other ideas about whether princesses should be doctors, and she’s soon locked back up in the castle in a crown and a silly frilly dress! With a bit of help from her friends, will Pearl prove princesses can be doctors too?

The cast will feature Ben Raymond as Zog, Alex Bloomer as Sir Gadabout, Lois Glenister as Pearl, Sarah Freer as Mermaid/Lion, Danny Hendrix as King/Unicorn, Annie Rose Chapman as Understudy (Rose Theatre and Tour) and Lauson Kenyon as Understudy (Rose Theatre).

Zog and the Flying Doctors runs at the Rose Theatre, Kingston 10 – 19 February 2022 before embarking on a UK tour. For dates and tickets visit ZogLive.com.

Zog and the Flying Doctors is one of the best-loved creations of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, first published in 2016 as a sequel to Zog – which has also been adapted for the stage with an ongoing UK tour.
