A hit at Galway Arts Festival 2013, ‘The Adventures of Shay Mouse’ will run at the Town Hall Theatre from 8 to 10 August.
Suitable for children of five and older, ‘The Butcher Boy’ author Pat McCabe’s children’s story tells the tale of Shay Mouse, who lives peacefully in Bornacoola Wood in Longford, smoking his pipe and inventing boastful stories for young Tom Pat Badger and Mickey Slug.
When an evil band of rats are burnt out of a barn in Mullingar, they take over the wood, making the small animals their slaves. A disgraced Shay Mouse is forced to flee his home and embark on a wonderful adventure across the Irish midlands.
The Adventures of Shay Mouse is a classic story for children by one of Ireland’s finest novelists. Performed in Galway for the first time as a stage musical, with a large cast and live music, ‘The Adventures of Shay Mouse’ is an epic road trip musical for both adults and children.
‘The Adventures of Shay Mouse’ runs at the Town Hall Theatre from Thursday, 8 August until Saturday, 10 August at 7pm. Admission is €15, with €10 concessions. Phone 091-569777 for further details or see www.tht.ie.
