Anna Newell

Tue 10 - Sat 14 Oct 2017 Draíocht Studio // FREE // Dur: 20-30 mins

Help us in the creation of a new theatre show – especially for babies! Anna Newell (www.annanewell.co.uk) is a theatre director who makes shows for babies. She works with composer David Goodall and shows that they have made together for babies have been seen off-Broadway and in South Africa as well as all over Ireland and the UK. They are making a new show called ‘I AM BABA’ for the four Dublin Local Authority areas this year and it may very well be the first ever baby show made in Dublin!
Whenever they make a baby show, they invite babies and their adult guest into rehearsals to be their creative consultants. We would love your involvement to make this happen!

Anna is now looking for some tiny experts to help the development of this piece at Draíocht! She needs babies aged 0-12 months (each of whom can bring one adult guest) to come along to an informal session.

Booking:
There’s no charge to be involved but capacity is limited to 6 babies per session, so booking is essential through Box Office, tel 01-8852622.

Welcome to the beautifully strange world of White.
Full of birdsong and birdhouses, it gleams and dazzles and shines in the night. Two friends look after the birds and make sure the eggs stay safe. The world is bright, ordered and white. But high up in the trees, all is not white. Colour appears. First red … then yellow … then blue! White is a playful, highly visual new show for very young children and is a perfect first-time theatre experience.

Lyngo Theatre Company

Thu 7 - Sat 9 Dec 2017 10.15AM & 12.15PM / 2PM & 4PM Draiocht Studio // €7 adults / €5 children / 2 teachers free per class of 20+

Is hunger stronger than love? In this story, it seems to be as the poor woodsman’s empty stomach goes to his head, he gives in to the bony step-mother and they leave Hansel and Gretel in the forest, not just once but twice and the second time there won’t be any moonstones to follow back home. Instead they follow their noses to the sugary heart of darkness.
A musical theatre version of this classic brother and sister tale of adventure and magic where we’ll have you humming along throughout and cheering as the witch slides down into our flaming oven. 

THU 07 & FRI 08 DEC 10.15AM & 12.15PM
SAT 09 DEC  2PM & 4PM 
Draíocht Studio   €7 adults / €5 children / 2 teachers free per class of 20+
