Galway  Galway-based  theatre  company,  Branar  Téatar  do  Pháistí,  is  delighted  to  announce  a  national  tour  of  their  new  theatre  show  for  children.  Woolly’s  Quest  will  receive  its  world  premiere  at  the  Riverbank  Arts  Centre, Newbridge, this Saturday, April 28, (with shows at 12 midday and 2pm) and  will  then  tour  to   six venues  nationwide,  including  two  venues  in  Dublin. 

Woolly’s  Quest is  an  action-packed,  bi-lingual  show  full  of  live  music,  physical  and  object  theatre.  Created  specifically  for  young  audiences  aged  six  and  upwards,  this  is  an  epic  story  of  how  one  sheep  dared  to  be  different.  It’s  shearing  day.  

Woolly  dares  to  ask  what  happens  to  her  fleece,  where  does  it  go?  She  decides  to  find  out  for  herself.  Leaving  the  flock  Woolly  undertakes  the  perilous  journey  to  see  what  life  lies  beyond  the  farmyard  gate.  Her  odyssey  to  discover  the  truth  leads  her  and  the  audience  on  a  journey  we  will  never  forget.  

It  is  a  rip-roaring  yarn,  which  weaves  together  storytelling,  music,  song  and  puppetry  in  a  pulsating  show  that  will  have  audiences  of  all  ages  hooked.    Performances  are  open  to  the  general  public  and  to  schools.  School  performances  are  aimed  at  2nd–  6th  classes  at  primary  level.

Ahead of the premiere, Marketing & Development Manager of Riverbank Arts Centre Eric Hennelly Flanagan said: “We are delighted to be once again working with Branar. It is fantastic to have the world premiere here in Newbridge and for young and old to experience the magic of this world renowned company. Who knows, Woolly might like it in the Curragh and stay with us”.

With  an  ensemble  cast  of  three performers,  directed  by  Marc  Mac  Lochlainn,  Woolly’s  Quest  combines  physical  performance  with  original  live  music  and  object  theatre,  which  has  become  a  distinctive  feature  of  Branar’s  shows.  Woolly’s  Quest  is  presented  in  association  with  the  Riverbank  Arts  Centre.
