Travel on the ferry to Struay to meet one of the best-loved characters in children’s books – Katie Morag McColl. She may live on a tiny weather-beaten island, but there’s plenty of mischief to get up to, and Katie Morag is always up to something! Meet Eriska the horse and the Struay cats, join in with the treasure trail, stumble across ancient ghosts in spooky places, find out why the American city kids don’t like island life and help Katie Morag find the answers to the riddles.
Katie Morag comes to life in a musical show full of fun for all the family.
Byre Theatre, Thursday 6th - Saturday 29th December, Box Office 01334 475000. Tour details to come
"Katie Morag and her American chums are swinging pirate cutlasses, bouncing about and leading us in a jolly song about hunting for treasure. Eager tots are on their feet, waving their arms and 'yo-ho-ho-ing' along...A lively, lovingly presented wee show abiut making new friends and not judges people (or places) by appearances." Mary Brennan, Glasgow Herald
"...graphic storybook sets - post office, pier, croft, castle and ferry leaving for Oban bring little nods and ripples of approval from the tiny tot audience..." Joyce McMillan, Scotsman
"...the brattish Americans discover that rural life is not as boring as they'd supposed and Katie Morag learns not to judge her friends by their appearances...a cheery musical romp performed with bags of energy" Mark Fisher, Hi-Arts
