“a near-perfect rhythm of narrative, interaction and song for young children…so full of the classic Christmas virtues of generosity and love that at the end, the little kids line up to give big chubby hugs to Ulla and Mr Hands, before they set off home, in a fine little glow of midwinter warmth.”
The Scotsman

“Dozens of little boys and girls would now love to take Little Ulla home with them, but they settle instead for lots of goodbye strokes and hugs for you-hoo.”
The Herald

“the show’s considerable charm is in the thoughtful details that enrich the Alpine-influenced set (complete with pom pom snowballs dangling from the ceiling) and the way in which McGarry and Steven Rae…create a friendly interaction with the children.”
The Herald

“It has plenty of audience interaction, a pair of playful puppets and a heart-warming resolution.”
The Stage

“The simple singalong, and involving the audience in the creation of the surprise cards for Hans, are neat, immediate tricks that have parents and children become part of the action…Little Ulla introduces young people to theatre as a safe, playful event.”
The Stage

“this show gives kids the chance to interact and influence their very own feel-good show.”

“a visual feast for little ones and their families, that combines the magic of the festive season with a moral message of care, communication and friendship in a way that very young children can appreciate and understand”

“Colourful, carefree and stimulating, Little Ulla is a fitting and uncomplicated addition to the Citz festive programme.”
