Shows include:

Zog and the Flying Doctors
Date: 23 – 25 July 2024 at MAST Mayflower Studios
Zog, super keen student turned air-ambulance, still lands with a bang-crash-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, Pearl needs to make her uncle better and prove that princesses can be doctors too.
