You will be treated to all the behind-the-scenes stories of the stars and the star-makers with Ireland’s foremost legendary broadcaster in his first solo stage show which is produced by John McColgan.

Admission: E20 (concession E18).

The Tipperary Excel will play host to the Sleeping Beauty Ballet on Sunday, May 27th at 7.30pm.

King Florestan and his Queen are holding a reception for the christening of their infant daughter Princess Aurora.

All the fairies have been invited as Godmothers and to bestow their magic gifts on the child. Unfortunately, the Fairy Carabosse has been forgotten. But nevertheless she arrives, furiously angry at this insult.

And, instead of presenting the child with a gift she curses the baby and promises that Aurora will grow up, but then prick her finger and die.

Happily, the Lilac Fairy still has her own gift to bestow. She reassures the distraught parents that Aurora will not die, but will instead fall into an endless sleep and then be awakened by a kiss from a Prince. Admission: E22 (concession E20), children E11.
