We were lucky enough to be invited along to see The Sagas of Noggin the Nog at The Cornerstone Theatre in Didcot this weekend.
The Sagas of Noggin the Nog is based on the stories from the much loved 1950’s and 60’s children’s TV series by Oliver Postgate and Peter Firman.
Directed by John Wright, the show takes us on a journey where Noggin the Nog must find a wife within 6 weeks or his evil uncle Nogbad the Bad will be crowned king. We follow four tea and toast loving vikings to the land of Nog in the journey to find Noggin the Nog a wife.
The show is a mixture of performance and puppetry which is both engaging and thoroughly entertaining, I also loved that some of the puppets were created by Ruth Herbert, the grand-daughter of Peter Firman.
We were all entertained from start to finish, and my two girls were captivated from the moment they sat down. The show had singing, comedy, audience participation and was performed to an excellent standard.
All four cast members were fantastic and really brought the show to life with their comedy and good timing. The costumes and puppets, designed by Yee Chuan, Caroline Bowman and Ruth Herbert were both creative and clever.
This was our second visit to the Cornerstone in Didcot and I love it, it is an intimate theatre in a modern environment where you can also enjoy a meal or a drink at their onsite cafe.
