Cruinniú na nÓg celebrates children’s creativity.

 

 22nd June - 4pm
Free Event

Cruinniú na nÓg celebrates children's creativity with a variety show from the children of Theatre Games Ireland

Cruinniú na nÓg aims to celebrate and encourage children and young people’s participation in culture and creativity through a compelling spread of performances, coding, theatre, art and music workshops, readings and screenings, special events and much more. This variety of child-centred events will be free and activity-based, with plenty of opportunities for young people to get ‘doing’, ‘making’ and ‘creating’.

Building on the success of last year’s Cruinniú na Cásca events, and a key initiative of the Creative Youth Plan to enable the creativity of every child and young person, each of the country’s 31 Local Authorities will lead on creating a programme of local events to showcase and share opportunities for children and young people. Children aged 0 to 18 will be able to experience a wealth of creative activities in their home counties.

 

 

Carnegie Arts Centre - 10th Anniversary - 29th June

 

Carnegie Arts Centre Kenmare will be ten years open on the 29th June 2018.

The Carnegie Arts Centre was established in 2008 as a cultural centre for the people of South Kerry and the Beara Peninsula. It was envisaged as a hub for artistic activity in the local community for present and future generations.

This multi-purpose arts centre has a 140-seat theatre, a full-size cinema screen, a performance area and a gallery space for art exhibitions. Technical features include high-quality stage lighting and sound system fully equipped for concerts, lectures, drama and exhibitions.

The official launch of the centre was in November 2008, when the Ceann Comhairle at the time John O’Donoghue said, “Facilities like the Carnegie Arts Centre have an important role to play in enriching the quality of life for people in their own place.”

We would like to thank everyone for their continued support over the years.

List of celebratory events to follow.

 

Drama/Comedy - "Steel Magnolias" - by The Carnegie Players - (1st of 5 shows)

Friday 27th July - 8pm
Tickets: €15/€12

Steel Magnolias.

 

Harling, based on his experience with his sister's death. The play is a comedy-drama about the bond among a group of Southern women in northwest Louisiana

The 1980s were the heyday of female-centred comedy-drama in Hollywood. Offering a palatable triumph of female solidarity in the face of tragedy, Robert Harling’s stage play Steel Magnolias became one of the most famous vehicles for this cinematic trend.

The play is set in the fictional small town of Chinquapin, Louisiana, in a beauty parlour owned by the vivacious Truvy (Karen Ardiff), who gathers an exclusive group of locals together for Saturday morning salon sessions to trade gossip and recipes.

Directed by Sheila O'Neill

Drama - 'The Man in the Woman's Shoes'- written & performed by Mikel Murfi

 

Thursday 19th July 8pm
Tickets: €18/ €16

The Man in the Woman's Shoes

Double Bill- 'I Hear You and Rejoice' written and performed by Mikel Murfi will take place Friday(20th July)

A one man show written and performed by Mikel Murfi.  

Set in October 1978 - Pope John Paul the First is not long dead, autumn is closing in and Pat Farnon has ‘some business’ to do in town.

The Man In The Woman’s Shoes follows Pat Farnon as he walks to town and back again. It is a beautifully observed piece, utterly simple and Murfi’s “astonishing acting” has been widely praised.

The Man In The Woman’s Shoes is funny, tender and at times downright daft. You might just fall in love with life again.

The show was originally created with Sligo County Council Arts Service and The Hawk’s Well Theatre, Sligo as part of the Bealtaine Festival 2012.  In 2015 it toured to Manhattan and Philadelphia as well as a sell out, three week run at the Abbey Theatre on the Peacock stage in Dublin. In 2016 it returned to NYC and also played to full houses over three weeks at the Tricycle Theatre in London.

 

Reviews for The Man In The Woman’s Shoes  

★★★★ ★ ‘Astonishing Acting'  The New York Times

★★★★ ‘A miniature masterpiece’ The Times of London 

Extraordinary physical performance... sharp observational comedy' The Sunday Times
