A clown with a big heart
Interactive live theatre for kids aged 4+
Louis Lovett (of Father Ted fame) is one of Ireland’s most experienced performers for young people. I just saw a piece on RTE’s Nationwide (while waiting for Britain’s Got Talent!) about Louis and his work for children from age 4 onwards, including the delightfully imaginative one-man children’s play ‘The Girl Who Forgot To Sing Badly’ that, from reading the reviews, delighted kids and adults alike from Jan to March in Dublin.
Nationwide reported that Louis, in association with The Ark Cultural Centre for Children, plan on touring to regional venues to inspire the next generation and engage with children, families, teachers, actors, students and venues – this sounds fantastic so lets encourage them to come to Limerick..soon. I have emailed them to find out about their regional plan and timeframe ??!!more info:
