Jings, Crivvens, Help Ma Boab! Scotland’s cheekiest, spiky-haired scamp Oor Wullie is back for Christmas at Dundee Rep! The only question is – where’s his bucket?!
Join Wullie, Fat Boab, Soapy Soutar, Wee Eck, and the rest of the Sunday Post gang, in a brand new musical adventure celebrating their 80th anniversary as Scotland’s most beloved comic strip.
Continuing their collaboration with Dundee Rep, and in partnership with internationally acclaimed Selladoor Worldwide, award-winning writing partnership Noisemaker are bringing the iconic character to the stage and prove that even at 80-years old he’s still Oor Wullie! Your Wullie! A’body’s Wullie!
Tickets for this production, which runs 23rd November 2019 through to 5th January 2020, will go on general sale on at 10.00am this Tuesday, 19th March. Before then priority booking is open only to Dundee Rep Friends from 10.00am tomorrow, Monday 18th March.
