Full Dates and Casting Announced For ZOG AND THE FLYING DOCTORS UK Tour

Zog and his crew are flying back to the stage with a brand-new adventure next month! Based on the bestselling sequel by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, Zog and the Flying Doctors will premiere at Rose Theatre, Kingston from Thursday 10 to Saturday 19 February 2022 prior to a Spring/Summer UK Tour.

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, super keen dragon 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 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?

Zog and the Flying Doctors is brought to the stage by Freckle Productions and Rose Theatre. Freckle Productions are pioneers in imaginative storytelling for children and the team behind hits including Stick Man. Rose Theatre is the largest producing theatre in South West London and has established itself as one of the most exciting theatres in the UK.

Zog and the Flying Doctors follows their smash-hit adaptation of Zog and reunites adaptor and director Emma Kilbey with composer and lyricist Joe Stilgoe for this truly modern take on the much-loved story.

Zog is one of the best-loved creations of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, the UK's number one picture book pair behind many modern classics including The Gruffalo which has been published in over 100 languages. Together their books have sold over 75 million copies.

First published in 2016, Zog and the Flying Doctors is the smash-hit sequel to Zog. On Christmas Day 2020, Magic Light Pictures premiered an animated film of Zog and the Flying Doctors on BBC One featuring an all-star cast including Sir Lenny Henry and Rob Brydon. Highly acclaimed, it was watched by 4.5 million and many more streamed.

Zog and the Flying Doctors is adapted and directed by Emma Kilbey with songs by Joe Stilgoe, designs by Lucy Bradridge, choreography by Tom Jackson Greaves and lighting design by Aaron J Dootson.
