The Girl who Forgot to Sing Badly

The Girl who Forgot to Sing Badly

Theatre Lovett

Fri 27 - Sat 28 Feb 2015 Main Auditorium // €7 Adults / €5 children / 2 teachers free per class

Sometimes it takes a girl-sized human to solve an adult-sized problem.
Peggy O’Hegarty and her parents are packers. They squeeze fruit into tins, foxes into boxes, even bikes into brown paper bags. And all the while Peggy sings with the voice of an angel – a grossly unfortunate angel, who can’t sing at all. But one day work stops working, and the jobs stop coming, and Peggy steps outside to find that winter has arrived… and everyone in her city gone! 
Ingenious performer Louis Lovett leads the audience on an untamed adventure that crosses snowy lands and wild seas. As Peggy desperately tries to save the day, we learn about love, loss, the reassurance of goats, and the courage to sing gloriously on or off-key.
Suitable for ages 7+ and adults of all ages.

Written by Finegan Kruckemeyer, Directed by Lynne Parker, Performed by Louis Lovett, Produced by Muireann Ahern Lovett.
The Girl Who Forgot to Sing Badly was originally produced by The Ark in association with Theatre Lovett.

FRI 27 FEB   10AM & 12 NOON
SAT 28 FEB  2PM & 4PM
Main Auditorium // €7 Adults / €5 children
Duration: 75 mins / Age 7+

Family Day: Colour Like Kandinsky

Family Day: Colour Like Kandinsky

Sat 7 Mar 2015 Draíocht Galleries // FREE

Even as a child the Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky was really interested in colour. He used it to show emotion rather than to make objects look real. This family day we will take a look at some of his work and create some colourful pictures of our own inspired by this great artist, using chalks and oil pastels. So come along and learn a bit and have some fun with colour, with the help of our artists.

Lifeboat

Spreacha 2015 - Catherine Wheels Theatre Company, Scotland

Tue 24 - Thu 26 Mar 2015 Spréacha on Tour

Lifeboat is the extraordinary true story of Bess Walder and Beth Cummings. Set in World War II, it is a story of courage, a story of survival and a story of enduring friendship. On Friday 13 September 1940, a ship, The City of Benares, set sail from Liverpool for Canada. On board were 90 evacuees escaping the relentless bombing and dangers of war torn Britain. Four days into the crossing, the ship was torpedoed and sank. Only eleven of the evacuees survived. Two fifteen year old girls, Bess Walder and Beth Cummings, spent 19 terrifying hours in the water on an upturned lifeboat. They willed each other to survive. Lifeboat tells their story.

Far Away From Me
  • Friends Special Price Event

Far Away From Me

Written and directed by Amy Conroy, Presented by The Ark

Sat 4 Apr 2015 2PM & 4PM / Age 6+ Main Auditorium // €7 Adults / €5 children

Kevin is a little prince … at least that’s what his mum tells him. Kevin likes the idea of being a prince on a horse, a beautiful brown horse with a white splotch down his nose and galloping across the kingdom. His Kingdom. From his bedroom behind the 8th door, on the 8th floor of a tall building (one of eight in a row), Kevin can go anywhere. And he wants to go. Far away from here. So his towering imagination takes him on some high-flying adventures. But there’s a storm coming and he needs to decide what’s real and what’s not real as his fast paced fantasies land with a spectacular bump right there on his bed.

Far Away from Me is a new theatre show written and directed by Amy Conroy, inspired by The Princess and the Pea and infused with the wild energy of aerial performance, dance music and great storytelling.
