Dear Zoo Comes To Dubai Theatres
Dear Zoo Comes To Dubai Theatres: Our spring season is already well underway with the news that Dear Zoo, from the bestselling book of the same name by famous children’s author Rod Campbell, is on the way to UAE theatres in March 2019! We’ve been wanting to book this show for a while now as we believe it’s super important to introduce little ones to the joys of theatre and live entertainment, especially if there is a wonderful picture book involved too.
The ultimate animal adventure
Join the hapless zookeeper as he struggles to find the ultimate pet for his young friend – but fails several times along the way. We love the fact that this play sticks well to the simple storyline, but also adds an interactive dimension with all the audience participation and catchy songs along the way. Little ones get to learn all about the different animals featured, their habits, how they live in the wild, and why they don’t make good pets. There’s also a cheeky monkey who pops up at regular intervals for additional comedy value.
Dear Zoo is one of the first books most young children will learn to read with. The adorable ‘lift the flaps’ tale and the surprise element has been a winning formula for decades. We love the fact that children can now see their favourite book adapted for the stage. Seeing a page to stage adaptation encourages young children to develop further interest in reading their favourite books. Literacy is such an important part of a child’s education, and our philosophy is that if we can encourage little ones to relax with a favourite book, we’ve will have achieved something worthwhile.
