Spring Theatre at Siamsa Tíre

Uplift your soul this spring with drama, dance and comedy at Siamsa Tíre. 

Mikel Murfi performs twice on the Siamsa stage this spring in Dances Like A Bomb on 7th March and The Mysterious Case of Kitsy Rainey on 6th April.  Performing with leading dance artist Finola Cronin in Dances Like A Bomb, this performance challenges the cult of youth and reclaims the ageing body.  In The Mysterious Case of Kitsy Rainey, this new one-man show is the third in a series following on from The Man in the Woman’s Shoes and I Hear You and Rejoice.  Tender, heartfelt and joyously funny, this play finishes out character Pat Farnon’s journey in a most unexpected way.

Laugh your way into St Patrick’s Day with Pat and Faye Shortt on 16th March as this father and daughter comedy duo return with their new show Knuckle Down. They glide seamlessly from stand up to hilarious characterisation of everyday Irish people. The sharp wit and physical comedy genius of this comedic duo will have you in pain with laughter!

One of the biggest touring hits, Fred & Alice – Love in the Time of OCD, returns on 27th March with what is expected to be another sell out run. This is a comedy with serious heart that tells the story of Fred and Alice’s quirky love story. These two mischievous characters who meet in a home, negotiate the perils and pitfalls of life and love and create a fantastical world which spills over into a madcap reality when they decide to move in together.

Tralee Musical Society returns with divine musical comedy Sister Act from 9th – 13th April.  Filled with powerful gospel music, outrageous dancing and a truly moving story, Sister Act will give audiences a reason to Rejoice this spring.

Irish National Opera presents Vivaldi’s L’Olimpiade on 20th April. Seven characters are brought to life showing their personalities and feelings through arias that range from the explosive and almost instrumental virtuosic, the slow exploration of more tender thoughts. It tells the story of four young people, one an Olympic champion – tangled relationships, forbidden love, an unsuccessful assassination, and a royal father who has to accept his children as they are.

Heartfelt Productions bring us some country music and comedy and drama on the 9th May in Dolly and Mick. This funny and engaging story follows a widower from Limerick and a divorcee from Arkansas as they meet at the Lisdoonvarna Matchmaking Festival, through to a shocking revelation that could tear them asunder. Don’t miss what promises to be a great night out with well-known songs performed live.

Tralee’s Zyber Theatre end the spring season of theatre with John Fraher’s emotional drama The Game.  Set within the confines of a dysfunctional family and their associates where life becomes a game. This is another wonderful thought provoking production by local Tralee theatre group.
