A Musical Adventure – Live On Stage!

Get ready to GO WILD with The McDougalls – Scotland’s famed children’s theatre troupe as they visit Alnwick Playhouse for the first time!

Come and join Max, Auntie Aggie and their best friend Morag the Rabbit as they head out on a Safari Adventure – live on stage!

Join the gang for musical mayhem and fun in the jungle, in a fast-paced family show packed with toe-tapping singalong songs like “I Think I’ll Go and Eat Worms” and “Down in the Jungle Where Nobody Goes”.

From silly snakes to laughing giraffes, they need YOUR help to look after all the animals.

Come dressed as your favourite animal for a terrific live theatre experience for little ones and their families filled with colourful creatures and bucket loads of audience participation.


“It’s the best and funniest children’s show ever. Children absolutely loved it.” Audience Review


 A fun-filled musical stage act designed to entertain and enthral.  A magical theatre experience.” The Scotsman.


“This had family audiences fixed. Children and adults left leaving the theatre wanting more. A live adventure and an experience that lasts”. Artistic Director, Birmingham Old Rep Theatre.
