Rockin’ Rhymes comes to arts centre




This week, Roscommon Arts Centre gets ready to welcome Branar Theatre Company back to Roscommon with a new show that has been developed with the support of Roscommon Arts Centre/The Creative Ireland Roscommon programme. ‘Rockin’ Rhymes’ is the latest offering.

  ‘Rockin’ Rhymes’ is a new departure for the company and this time around they’ve focussed on developing a music show – similar to a gig for kids, but with some very familiar material. It is a rock ‘n’ roll adventure featuring nursery rhymes as you’ve never heard them before. 

  Did little Miss Muffett jive around her tuffet? Were Jack and Jill bopping up that hill? Was it a funky beat that made the cradle really rock? Rockin’ Rhymes is a new music show for music lovers aged 2 to 102.

  Original songs based on the well-loved nursery rhymes will be performed by a live 5-piece band, accompanied by animated illustrations by artist Maeve Clancy and directed by Marc Mac Lochlainn. 

  The show has been receiving rave reviews and standing ovations from audiences at the Baboro International Children’s Festival and we look forward to presenting it to local audiences this Friday afternoon (November 1st) at 2 pm. Tickets are priced at €8 and €6 and are now available from box office on 090-6625824.
