One very special doctor with a deep understanding and love of animals finds he is able to speak with them. Doctor Dolittle and some of his animal friends travel to Africa to save the monkeys from a terrible plague.

The Vermont Children's Theater provides the children in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont with a practical introduction to theatre, developing theatrical technique, self-confidence and personal responsibility regardless of their ability to pay. Each summer, local children perform three musicals, starting with the youngest group in early July, and culminating with the high school actors in a Broadway musical in late July. Advanced tickets are available through Catamount Arts (www.catamountarts.org).
The theater is located in a converted barn on Darling Hill, with a gorgeous view of Willoughby Gap. To reach the theater from downtown Lyndonville, go north on US Route 5, turn right on VT Route 114, and then left on Darling Hill Road. The theater is on the left, about 2 miles from VT Route 114, just past the Wildflower Inn.
