There will be fun for all the family at Dundee Rep Theatre on Tuesday and Wednesday, October 14 and 15 when the lovable Charlie and Lola bring their very own style of entertainment to the theatre.

This delightful brother and sister bring their brand new production ‘Charlie and Lola’s Extremely New Play’ to Dundee for the first time.

The show follows the success of ‘Charlie and Lola’s Best Bestest Play’, which thrilled thousands of children, including those of celebrities such as Nicole Kidman, Geri Halliwell and Simon Pegg and ‘Charlie and Lola’s Extremely New Play’ has been receiving rave reviews.

The characters are the creations of Lauren Child and were introduced in a series of picture books, but later adapted for television.

Charlie and Lola are completely excited to be back on stage with their ‘Extremely New Play’ and this time they’re bringing along Sizzles the Dog.

Children over the age of three will love this extra special, brand new show, written just for them, in which everything looks and sounds just right.

Enter a magical journey through the seasons, as Charlie and Lola discover that everything is different and not the same.

What happens when Lola and her best friend Lotta say they will honestly look after Sizzles?

And what happens when they follow Charlie and his best friend Marv on a Pirate Squidbones adventure?

Playful, funny and full of surprises, this extremely new play about friendship and adventures is a treat for everyone.

‘Charlie and Lola’s Extremely New Play’ uses specially made puppets.

Adaptor Jonathan Lloyd and director Roman Stefanksi wanted the show to be familiar yet surprising, recognisable yet distinctly different.

The show is presented by five puppeteers. Charlie and Lola appear as cut-out cartoon characters in the same magical world they inhabit in the books and TV series. From pink milk to party rings, everything you expect is there.

‘Charlie and Lola’s Extremely New Play’ lasts one hour and 15 minutes with interval and is ideal for ages 3+.
