The Source Arts Centre in Thurles has Christmas entertainment all wrapped up with the return of the Elf Factory for the little ones, Liam Lawton, Hermitage Green, Jimmy MacCarthy and Jack Lukeman and on the big screen, favourite family films ‘Elf’ and ‘Miracle on 34th Street’.
If it’s Christmas gifts you’re after Joe Hogan and Liz Nilsson’s exhibition in The Source Gallery will inspire and, of course, tickets and gift vouchers make great presents for loved ones and corporate friends.
Theatre lovers will be delighted by Padraig Potts’ ‘Guide to Walking’ which has been winning hearts all over the country and ‘The Great Hunger’ in January.
We also have two local productions, ‘Beyond the Brooklyn Sky’ from the Thurles Drama Group and ‘The Beauty Queen of Leenane’ from The Fionn Mac Cumhaill Players.
Cyclone Rep bring ‘The Shakespeare Sessions’ to Thurles for the first time. A combination of theatre and workshop, these are great study aids.
Music lovers are well catered for with the return of the wonderful Hunka, Dunne Robinson Trio and a first visit for tenors Frank Naughton and Seán Costelloe, celebrating the great Irish tenors. Angela Murphy will play tribute to her aunt in song and story with Hello Delia Murphy.
Families are in for a treat with Theatre Lovett’s ‘The Girl Who Forgot to Sing Badly’, just returned from the US and Australia and Lambert Puppet Theatre return with ‘Snow White and Bosco’.
If it’s belly laughs you’re after look no further than Neil Delamere, Jason Byrne and Brendan Grace for laughs this season.
New Year is a great time to take on new challenges. To this end we are offering technical training in stage lighting and health and safety.
We also launch ‘Side by Side’, a gentle art class for three to eight-year-olds and their parents/guardians.
Another first is ‘Brick Flicks’ where you can bring your favourite Lego characters to life in stop motion animation.
