Dunfanaghy, Holy Trinity Hall
Twinkle, twinkle, little star, how I wonder what you are, up above the world so high, like a diamond in the sky – says the song. An interactive dance performance for children of 0–2 years, Twinkles is full of various shining objects which motivates young audiences together with dancers to explore light on stage. So the performance becomes a laboratory for babies to enjoy sources of light and movement.

A hilarious water charges inspired musical comedy written by Conor Malone and directed by Caroline Bell! Wicked King Enda has kidnapped Anna Livia the Water Maiden and all the water in the village well has dried up. It’s a race against time for our unlikely coalition of heroes – Robin B’Stard (Robin Hood’s illegitimate, slightly less well-known half brother), Will Scarletforya, Scarecrow Mick and Friar Tourettes, with some help from Turfcutter Ming and the ancient wizard Michael D.
