Roscommon Arts Centre will partner with Ceol Connected to present the first ever Tradoodle Roscommon, an exciting two-day traditional arts event for children which takes place at the centre during the October school holidays.
On Monday, October 29th there are two performances of A Winter Wish, a theatre piece for ages 3+ set in a magical forest. The shows are at 11 am and 12.30 pm. The 11 am show is a multi-sensory performance for children with special needs and capacity is limited.
Also taking place on the Bank Holiday Monday is a seán nos dancing workshop entitled ‘Feet To The Beat’ which takes place from 2 pm – 3 pm and is suitable for ages 3+. There will be lots of fun and games and a chance for children to create and show off their fancy footwork.
On Tuesday, October 30th there are three events taking place at the centre. ‘Deep Sea Shadows’ will show you how to make your very own shadow puppet and it takes place from 11 am – 1 pm for ages 7+. The ‘Under The Sea Session’ at 1 pm – 2 pm encourages all young musicians to bring along their instruments and dancing shoes to this session, where, led by experienced traditional musicians, children can join in the fun while their families watch.
At 2 pm there is a family theatre show called ‘The Wonderful Tune’ which is a captivating, moving show which weaves together traditional music, song, puppetry and animation. Told through the eyes of Maggie Connor and her son Maurice, ‘the king of all the pipers in Ireland’, this is a show which will have everyone singing along!
