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.
