REVIEWED BY: Archie, 8, and Harry, 3, and their mum and dad Ann and Fraser Wallace, from East Kilbride.
WHAT’S IT ABOUT? Two storytellers (Rob Evans and Ross Allan) try to encourage their hen to produce an egg for Christmas Day by telling her the story of brave Rudolf, the reindeer with big dreams. Using only bits and pieces from their tiny house, they held all the audience spellbound. Captivating tale played out on a beautiful set. Perfect for families.
KIDS’ VERDICT: Harry: “I liked every single bit of the story because it was very funny and very silly.” Archie: “The storytellers were brilliant.”
FUNNIEST BIT: When Rudolf’s nemesis was revealed as ‘Olive, the other reindeer’ all the grown-ups giggled, and the kids loved all the running about and falling over.
SCARIEST BIT: Harry and Archie experienced a moment of real anguish when poor Rudolf was left alone in the scary woods.
BEST BIT: When Rudolf finally gets to pull Santa’s sleigh, of course.
