After long months of lockdown life and homeschooling, it’s time to treat kids and parents alike to an evening of fun and frivolity as Funbox return to the Whitehall Theatre, Dundee on Saturday, 27 and Sunday, 28 November – with sing-along favourites guaranteed to get audiences in the festive spirit.

The entertaining trio of Kevin Macleod, Anya Scott-Rodgers and Bonzo the Dog promise a show filled to the brim with jokes, laughs and joy for all the family.

Formerly of The Singing Kettle, Funbox maintain the balance of traditional singalong songs and brand new compositions with a distinctly Scottish flavour, but with their own brand of modern manic humour and organised chaos.

Kevin Macleod said: “It’s been wonderful to grow Funbox over the last six years and to see our shows become a highlight in many families’ calendars.

We always have a great time in Dundee and can’t wait to return there this November."

He added: “This tour marks our proper return to the stage - we haven’t been able to tour or perform in theatres since March 2020.

We can’t wait to get back out on the road and see all our fans and familiar faces again.”

Creating Funbox was the next logical step for Macleod and Scott-Rodgers after the end of iconic children’s entertainment show, The Singing Kettle in 2015. So that’s what Kevin, Anya along with their music creator, and former member, Gary Coupland did.

Taking with them a wealth of experience from their days as performers and writers on The Singing Kettle, the pair have created a sparkling new experience for kids of all ages – from nought to ninety.

Since forming, Funbox have taken their special brand of family fun the length and breadth of the country and beyond.

At the heart of every show is the magical but mysterious Funbox, which contains everything audiences need to sing a song or have an adventure.

Anya Scott Rodgers said: “We love visiting venues and entertaining families across Scotland and Christmas time is our favourite time to tour.

We’re so looking forward to bringing the festive cheer to The Whitehall Theatre this winter.”

She added: “We are of course super excited to get back to Dundee as it not only marks the beginning of our Christmas tour, but also our return to touring after what’s been a very long, difficult and uncertain 20 months.”

Catch Funbox and Santa’s Pyjama Party on Saturday, 27 or Sunday, 28 November 2021 at The Whitehall Theatre, 12 Bellfield Street, Dundee, DD1 5JA.

The rib-tickling trio’s slapstick slumber party is not to be slept on!
