The Lambert Puppet Theatre presents ‘Snow White & Bosco’ at The Source Arts Centre on Sunday, February 1st.

The Lambert Puppet Theatre is widely recognised as the premier touring puppet theatre company in Ireland and is internationally renowned for its productions in theatres throughout the UK and Europe.

From its earliest beginning the Lambert family has been involved with RTÉ working on the hugely-popular series ‘Wanderly Wagon’ featuring the late Eugene Lambert and Judge. Paula Lambert was the voice of Bosco for seventeen years and Bosco is still a firm favourite with young children today.

This is a beautifully produced show with large puppets, colourful sets and exquisite lighting.

Don’t miss ‘Snow White & Bosco’ at The Source Arts Centre on Sunday, February 1st at 2pm and 4pm. Admission is priced at €8 and the show is suitable for children aged between three and eight years of age.

Theatre Lovett presents ‘The Girl who Forgot to Sing Badly’ at The Source Arts Centre on March 3rd-4th.

Theatre Lovett, who recently returned from the iconic Sydney Opera House, are on the road again with their hit show for family audiences.

Muireann Ahern-Lovett and Louis Lovett are Theatre Lovett - an Irish company that is attracting considerable national and international attention for their family-friendly theatre productions.

Theatre Lovett have performed on New York’s 42nd street, at the Sydney Opera House and now this exciting family-friendly company are bringing the runaway theatrical hit ‘The Girl who Forgot to Sing Badly’ to The Source Arts Centre in Thurles.

Since opening in Dublin in 2010 to rave reviews and packed houses this rollercoaster show has traveled to Edinburgh, London, Texas, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Melbourne, Sydney and to 42nd street, New York where it was comfortably sandwiched between ‘Spiderman’ and ‘Wicked’, the musical.

Ingenious performer Louis Lovett’s hilarious portrayal of Peggy O’Hegarty, a young girl who saves her city from disaster certainly tickles both adults and children alike.

Lovett is well-known on Irish TV as Dieter Langer, the German sausage seller in ‘Killinascully’ where he stars alongside Pat Shortt. He also plays Mr Leech, the annoying bank manager in Chris O’Dowd’s ‘Moone Boy’.

‘The Girl who Forgot to Sing Badly’ sees Louis Lovett play multiple characters on a remarkable set of crates and packages, which emerge from an enormous, unfolding wooden box.

Do not miss this opportunity to catch this fantastic production on stage. It is a must-see for Irish audiences young and old!
