The Sagas Of Noggin The Nog (Third Party Productions)

By | Published on Wednesday 20 August 2014

Four of the least gruff Vikings you’ll ever meet bring to life two gentle tales of Noggin The Nog in this delightful, funny hour of children’s theatre. Combining live action, Python-esque animations and endearingly cute and surprisingly emotive puppets, this show walks the line between fun for kids and knowing jokes for adults without a single misstep. The cast effortlessly swap between a multitude of roles, with the wonderfully boo-able Nogbad The Bad really standing out. The script is sharp, mixing jokes, storytelling and song in equal measure, while the combination of puppetry and live action works remarkably well. ‘The Sagas Of Noggin The Nog’ is hilarious, sweet family fun that will entertain adults and children alike.

Assembly George Square, until 25 Aug.
