EASTER AT THE HE­LIX The Hip Hop Easter Bunny Show/Char­lotte’s Web Sat 3pm 118/11 (Hip-Hop Bunny) Wed, Thurs 2.30pm & 6.30pm 125 adult; 119 chil­dren (Char­lotte’s Web) The He­lix, DCU, Glas­nevin, Dublin 01-7007000 www.the­he­lix.ie The He­lix in Dublin City Univer­sity has sched­uled a few the­atri­cal treats for chil­dren over the Easter hol­i­days. First up is The Hip Hop Easter Bunny Show to­mor­row af­ter­noon. Fea­tur­ing a mix of tra­di­tional and newly com­posed mu­sic and song from mu­si­cians Mícheál Ó Súil­leab­háin and Mel Mercier, this interactive show is specif­i­cally aimed at younger chil­dren.

Watch out for crazy char­ac­ters in­clud­ing a Gi­ant Easter Egg and a Rap­ping Easter Bunny (be­low) and be pre­pared to join in the Easter Egg hunt.

Mean­while, the ac­claimed com­pany Wa­ter­shed Pro­duc­tions are on tour again with the drama­ti­sa­tion of EB White’s clas­sic chil­dren’s tale, Char­lotte’s Web.

Last shown in the He­lix as the Christ­mas show for 2003, this pro­duc­tion will un­doubt­edly at­tract a new batch of five to 10- yearolds. And, if it is as good this time as it was back then, the per­for­mances of the ac­tors who play Char­lotte, the spi­der and Wil­bur the pig will be re­mem­bered by chil­dren for years to come.
