The Twits

Our summer programme continues to go from strength to strength and is the ideal way to celebrate the end of term.  This year Mill Productions will be performing Roald Dahl’s hilarious tale The Twits:

Mr. and Mrs. Twit are the smelliest, nastiest, ugliest people in the world. They hate everything—except playing mean jokes on each other, catching innocent birds to put in their Bird Pies, and making their caged monkeys, the Muggle-Wumps, stand on their heads all day. But the Muggle-Wumps have had enough….

Dlr Mill Theatre Seachtain na Gaeilge: 9th – 13th March 2020

Seachtain na Gaeilge (Irish Language Week) is an international Irish language festival and one of the biggest celebrations of our native language and culture that takes place each year in Ireland and in many other countries.

Le haghaidh Seachtain na Gaelige 2020, beidh DabbledooMusic ag tabhairt cuairte ar Amharchlann an Mhuilleann Dún Droma chun sraith ceardlann a sheachadadh. Ag baint úsáide as ár nodaireacht ghrafach atá dathchódaithe agus beoite, beidh gach duine ag déanamh ceoil le chéile in am ar bith. Foghlaim faoin tséis le Jazz Cat, ag drumadóireacht le Igor The Octopus agus ag imirt in éineacht le polka Éireannach. Níl gá le haon eolas nó taithí ceoil roimhe seo. Oiriúnach do dhaoine aois 6-12.

For Seachtain na Gaelige 2020, DabbledooMusic will be visiting the Mill Theatre Dundrum to deliver a series of very special workshops. Using our colour-coded and animated graphic notation, participants will be making music together in no time at all. Learn about melody with Jazz Cat, drumming with Igor the Octopus and perform an Irish Polka. No previous musical experience or knowledge needed (although expect there to be ‘cúpla focal as Gaelige’ used!). Suitable for children aged 6-12.
