Dundee’s dearest Oor Wullie is all set to take on a musical tour across Scotland

Oor Wullie, Scotland’s favourite comic-strip rascal, born and bred in our wee city over 80 years ago, is all set to try a hand at the magical world of musical theatre in an upcoming Scottish tour.

Who would have thought that the iconic wee laddie from Auchenshoogle had such braw talent?

The musical, set in modern-day Dundee, will play out the many mischievous adventures of Wullie, Fat Boab, Soapy Soutar, and plenty more of the Sunday Post pals.


The world premier stage show opens at the Dundee Rep Theatre, before touring to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Ayr, Stirling and Inverness – with even more dates to follow.

The musical will be represented by Dundee Rep Ensemble and Selladoor Productions, in association with Noisemaker.

Artistic director Andrew Panton said:

It’s going to be amazing, visually and musically, with plenty of magic along the way. We want to bring Oor Wullie on to the stage for his fans but we’re also aiming to open up Oor Wullie to a generation that perhaps doesn’t know about him. So I think we have to tell the story of a traditional character but in a contemporary Scotland and a contemporary Dundee. It’s quite a job to do, but we’re working on it.
