The Market Place Theatre in Armagh is set to entertain little ones this Easter with some stunning children’s performances.
‘Egg and Spoon’, on 27 April, is a perfect gentle introduction to the magic of theatre. It’s an interactive romp through the seasons where children aged 1-5 come in and out of the magic circle and get to open all the gifts of nature.
Percy and April get you settled on our comfortable cushions and introduce you to Birdy, still hiding in his glowing egg. We have to wait til Spring if we want to see him, so it’s time to begin our hands-on journey through the year. We’ll run through the rain and the falling leaves and sleep under the snow till the sun wakes us up for the butterfly party.
Then on Tuesday, April 30, we meet Blaithin and Uncle Rusty in ‘Hatch’, a unique blend of music, comedy, theatre, contemporary and aerial dance.
‘Hatch’ also weaves Irish language and dancing into this wonderful story, creating a new world for young audiences that is interactive and sensory friendly.
It is beautifully crafted and exquisitely delivered, full of unexpected and colourful wonders, which invite children to understand the transformational cycles of life, whilst exploring, interacting and discovering new things about the world of caterpillars, moths and butterflies!
There is an arts and craft session as part of the performance where children become part of the story as they are invited on stage to begin their adventure! Suitable for 4-8 year olds.
Tickets are available from the Theatre Box Office on  3752 1821, or online at www.visitarmagh.com/marketplacetheatre.
