From Flannery to Fish at the Moat Theatre in Naas

Jerry Fish

While The Moat Club's Bookworms is under way this week — Barbara Sheridan's production runs at the theatre until next Saturday, October 15, nightly at 8pm — the busy bees at The Moat Theatre are still plugging away for their other shows.

Music is at the forefront with Mick Flannery at the theatre this weekend.

The former stonemason will be joined by his Aunt Karrie on stage as support. It really is a family affair and if you are lucky enough to have a ticket for this show, you might just get a chance to compare who looks like who! Mick plays on Sunday, October 16, and ticket are limited (if not sold out by now).

Also for dog lovers, The Duck & Cup Café at The Moat Theatre are holding a fundraising day for Madra on the same day as Mick. You can grab a coffee booster before the gig from Amy.

Word on the Street from Riff Raff drama group in Newbridge takes to the stage on Thursday 20 and Friday 21 October.

The scene is down town New York in 1933, Prohibition has ended, there’s a new President, and times seem to be getting better until a local mob boss is found in a Dumpster down an alley. Co-directed by Bro Michael Broderick and Catherine Connolly, it promises deception and corruption with great acting to boot.

The Songs and Tall Tales of Jerry Fish is an intimate, stripped-down, theatre style show in which Jerry performs his favourite songs from a career spanning over two decades.

The Emotional Fish singer is still fresh in a lot of peoples mind from his Electric Picnic performance and will be bringing his own style of fun to The Moat Theatre stage. Moustache and all, check him out on Saturday October 22 for a very reasonable €16.

Back for another year of Halloween Magic, Jackula is one for the all the family. Magic tricks for all ages and dress up too, Jackula will get you in the mood for the spooky season with lots of fun and games. The show is for ages 4 and over, so why not bring a party of kiddies along on Sunday October 23 at 4pm.
