Courthouse has a packed pro­gramme

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

TI­NA­HELY’S Courthouse Arts Cen­tre has launched a jam-pro­gramme of events for its up­com­ing au­tumn/win­ter sea­son.

There’s some­thing for ev­ery­one from theatre and com­edy to film and mu­sic. Co­me­dian Pat Shortt will per­form his new show on Satur­day, Septem­ber 21 from 8.30 p.m. Fea­tur­ing brand new ma­te­rial and sketches, Hey! is a rogue’s gallery of odd ball char­ac­ters, bizarre sit­u­a­tions and even a song or two. The well-loved co­me­dian has promised a whole raft of new char­ac­ters that are sure to make this an unmissable show. Septem­ber also fea­tures per­for­mances by Jack O’Rourke and a jazz night with the Peter Moc Group.

Other mu­si­cal high­lights of the sea­son in­clude Don Baker and his band, David Kitt, De­clan Sin­nott, Ham­sand­wicH and a night with Ni­amh Ka­vanagh. The Gregory Walk­ers will also join forces with Ir­ish dancer, Kelsey Schule, for an evening that fuses baroque and tra­di­tional mu­sic with dance from Ire­land, Eng­land, France and Spain.

The Dirt Birds will have au­di­ences laugh­ing dur­ing their show which is part of the SelfHelp tour. The night is set to cover every­thing from the stress of mak­ing the school lunches to hav­ing an out-of-date NCT cer­tifi­cate.

Mean­while Jon Kenny will per­form the one-man show, The Crow­man on Novem­ber 30. Set in a sparsely dec­o­rated kitchen, it of­fers a win­dow the soul of a lonely bach­e­lor.

The Courthouse’s pop­u­lar film club also re­turns. Now on Fri­day night, the open­ing film is Mule, the 2018 di­rec­to­rial fea­ture from Clint East­wood. The sea­son in­cludes a mix­ture of award-win­ning drama, fam­ily favourites and clas­sic scares.

The films that will be screened are Green Book, Halloween, Bo­hemian Rhap­sody, Meet Me in St Louis, Ho­tel Tran­syl­va­nia, and the Grinch.

There will be a se­ries of chil­dren’s work­shops tak­ing place on top­ics as di­verse as clay­maz­ing, sto­ry­telling, drama and art.
