MACROBERT Arts Centre welcomes the cheeky, spiky-haired scamp Oor Wullie to the stage in a brand new musical adventure that celebrates over 80 years of Scotland’s most beloved comic strip.

Oor Wullie has featured in DC Thomson Media comic strips in the Sunday Post for over 80 years. The classic is transformed from page to stage with Wullie and his pals Fat Boab, Soapy Soutar, Wee Eck and the rest of the gang. With his famous bucket and his dungarees, Oor Wullie is in a constant battle against boredom. His mischievous pranks often land him in a scrape or two but he is ready to right the wrongs and bravely tackle bullies to protect his pals.

The superb cast include Paisley born Martin Quinn (Oor Wullie), who has previously starred in Peter Gynt at The Nation Theatre of Great Britain, with Dan Buckley and Grant McIntyre who will join Martin on stage as lifelong pals Fat Boab and Wee Eck. Bailey Newsome will be playing Soapy Soutar and Leah Byrne playing Primrose. In a slight twist, Leanne Traynor will play a reimagined Basher Mackenzie, with George Drennan, Irene McDougall, Ann Louise Ross and Eklovey Kashyap completing the cast.

Dundee Rep Ensemble and Selladoor Productions bring this brand new musical to the stage in association with Noisemaker. Directed by Andrew Panton, who also directed The Broons that toured to Macrobert Arts Centre in 2016, Oor Wullie promises to be a treat for the whole family.

Oor Wullie drops into Macrobert Arts Centre from Wed 26 to Sat 29 Feb. Tickets priced £22.50 / £20.50 Conc are on sale now from the Macrobert Box Office on 01786 466666, or by visiting in person from 10am.
