Description

Hail Ogg 'n' Ugg! Heroes! And ta so much for inventing the dog. Don't miss this mind-boggling tale of how two Yorkshire hunter-gatherers palled up with the wolves and saved us from doglessness. Expect flying meat bones, sabre-toothed tigers, time-travelling stick and maybe, if you're lucky, even a pat of Dogg! Award-winning Fideri Fidera's reet funny comic take on the amazing evolutionary process that transformed the wolf into man's best friend and all the dogs we see in the world today. Perfect for dog lovers young and old, big and small.

Another great show from Theatre Fideri Fidera. We first saw them at the East Lothian Puppet Festival in April with a show called "Oskar" which was brilliant, so we were excited to see their new show Ogg 'n' Ugg 'n' Dogg. We weren't disappointed, our four year old son was captivated throughout. A thoroughly charming story, beautifully brought to life, funny and interactive in places (although it would be nice to include more than the first row of kids to participate) and very suitable for younger kids (which we've sometimes struggled with this festival), although the older kids and adults seemed to be loving it too. So far it's been the best thing we've seen at the fringe this year for 4 year olds. Looking forward to catching them again in April at the Puppet Festival.

Our 5 and 7 year old really enjoyed this show. It was lots of fun as well as being educational. The performers were great. Really entertaining for children and fun for adults too.

Review from Edinburgh Life With Kids .

We were delighted to start off our festival adventures with another production from Theatre Fideri Fidera. Specialising in theatre for children, their show last year stood out as one that really introduced kids to what theatre can be. So I was hoping for something original that would take us to into a different world – and thankfully, I wasn’t disappointed.From the very start of the performance, the kids were captivated by the use lighting and movement to create suspense and – very quickly - laughter as Ogg and Ugg emerged. … this was good story-telling at it’s best. The scenery and costumes were all used effectively to set a scene and take all of the audience with them. It was a great way to start our Fringe and I hope it’ll be one on your list to see. Would recommend for 3-9 year olds – although there were babies in the audience who seemed very happy!

Review from Primary Times. 3 August 2019

There were two and three year olds in the audience absolutely entranced. The ideal age, I’d say, is 3-7 year olds, and they hit that audience age bracket perfectly, with lots of expression in the acting, simple songs and some really sweet audience participation - including getting to stroke Tooth and Nail and their cubs at the end.

Review from Families Edinburgh Magazine August 3 2019

**** Four fantastic stars for Ogg ’n ’ Ugg ’n ’ Dogg which is genuinely funny and energetic and the adults in the audience were laughing just as much as the kids. With a brilliant mix of story, song, puppeteering, Natasha Granger and Jack Faires as Ogg and Ugg weave a tale from 10,000 years ago to modern day, from wolf to dog. They are warm, enthusiastic and their audience involvement is spot on. With a simple set, puppets and props, they set up camp, run from wolves, fish in a river and laze on the beach.

little tricks with props delight the whole audience. The set is extremely mobile and creates multiple changes of setting, little song interludes are peppered throughout … Theatre Fideri Fidera are a credit to children’s theatre as they keep a room full of children entertained for an hour.

Outstanding. Theatre Fideri Fidera are not Fringe favourites for nothing. Every aspect of the production is marvellous. From the acting, which is pitched perfectly to the wide-eyed wee ones; to the puppets and puppetry, which are in turn beautifully constructed and wondrously brought to life; via the story itself which is full of heart and smiles

The show doesn’t earn educational points for factual accuracy however I’m sure that won’t bother most children. I can’t see many not enjoying this friendly, well meaning, heart-warming show.
