Dear Zoo


Dear Zoo the timeless children's classic book returns to the stage!

See our characters write to the Zoo. Who will be delivered? A cheeky monkey, a jumpy frog and of course a perfect puppy.

Help your children learn as the book leaps onto the stage and share a magical experience as the story unfolds with child-engaging puppets, music and lots of audience interaction.

Rod Campbell's best-selling lift the flap book has delighted generations of young readers since it was first published in 1982. And has sold more than 8 million copies worldwide.

Join us at in Winchester to see what the zoo has sent: the perfect pet – in the end!

"A must-see for fans of the book, and for any young child who likes animals!"

"A superb theatrical production"
