The Girl Who Forgot

to Sing Badly

Peggy O’Hegarty and her parents are packers. They squeeze fruit into tins, foxes into boxes, even bikes into brown paper bags. And all the while Peggy sings with the voice of an angel - a grossly unfortunate angel, who can’t sing at all.  Ingenious performer Louis Lovett leads the audience on an untamed adventure that crosses snowy lands and wild seas on March 3rd-4th. As Peggy desperately tries to save the day, we learn about love, loss, the reassurance of goats, and the courage to sing gloriously on or off-key. This show is suitable for children aged seven-plus and adults of all ages.

Stage Pass & Lighting

The Source Arts Centre have linked up with those of a technical persuasion at AIST to offer two opportunities to learn from scratch or update your knowledge of all things safety and lighting on stage. Suitable for professionals working in a venue, those studying staging or lighting and who may want some practical pointers or those interested in amateur dramatics who want to pick up some tips. Stage Pass Training takes place on Friday, January 16th (10am to 5pm) and costs €85. The Stage Lighting Course takes place on Saturday, January 17th (10am to 5.30pm) and costs €85.
