Pitching the circus tent

Nicole and Martin roll into Roscommon and pitch their big White Tent on the grounds of Roscommon Arts Centre from 1st – 4th July presenting the best in mini-circus theatre to treat the whole family this summer. Nicole et Martin have been delighting audiences throughout Europe for over seven years with their unique presentation of the Grimm brothers fairytales. The production is a mini circus theatre, with wooden caravans, towing vehicles and its own dome-shaped marquee. Inside the tent, the world of theatre comes to life. Ancient folk tales take on a new guise with Nicole & Martin’s unique story-telling style. Children and adults alike are taken on a journey to another world. The stories are played out with a colourful mix of words, music, song, dance and juggling and acrobatic acts. Hansel and Gretel (July 1st & 2nd) and The Musicians of Bremen (July 3rd & 4th) will show in the tent daily at 3 pm. Booking at the arts centre box office (090) 66 25824.
