A fun stage adaptation of Zog and the Flying Doctors will entertain kids in Cambridge next week.

Based on the much-loved picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, Zog and the Flying Doctors can be seen at Cambridge Arts Theatre from Tuesday, August 9 to Sunday, August 14.

With performances in the morning and afternoon to choose from, it's the perfect school holiday treat for youngsters aged three plus.

Zog, super keen student turned air-ambulance, still lands with a crash-bang-thump.

Together 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.

However, Pearl’s uncle, the King, has other ideas about whether princesses should be doctors, and she’s soon locked up in the castle back in a crown and a silly frilly dress.

With a bit of help from some friends and half a pound of cheese, can Pearl make her uncle better and prove princesses can be doctors, too?

Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler are a multi award-winning writer and illustrator partnership, whose other titles include The Gruffalo, Room on the Broom, The Smartest Giant in Town and What the Ladybird Heard.
