The Nualas

Ireland’s top all-female comedy singing sensations are back!

Sat 18 Oct 2014 8PM Main Auditorium // €18 / €14 conc

Ireland’s top all-female comedy singing sensations The Nualas are legging it down to Draíocht for a night of laugh-your-head off, wet-your-pants, pass-out-from-the-glamour-of-it-all entertainment. In a world where pop stars think nothing of singing in their underwear, The Nualas buck the trend by sporting proper yet unbelievably eye-catching stage attire. You’ll hear Nuala favourites like ‘Manolo’ and ‘Girl With a Cabbage for a Head’ alongside fabulous all-new classics, such as ‘Sexy Farm Song’, and ‘Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, Why Am I So Fat?’.

Expect scintillating vocal harmony, ambitious choreography, bags of bling and a night packed solid with craic, laughter, tears and chat (not necessarily in that order).

Some adult content and strong language.

From senior politicians to senior clergy to the brightest stars in the Hollywood firmament, he has been a confessor figure to the good, the bad and the ugly. At 80, he’s now in happy semi-retirement but during his exhilarating two hour plus show, he talks about all the extraordinary moments he has witnessed or been at the centre of.

Fairy Snow gives Jack magic beans that grow into a giant beanstalk. Jack climbs up through the clouds where he sees a castle which is home to a cruel giant.
