Theatre Lovett: World class theatre for children

We’re dedicated to bringing you the best artistic shows for your children to see, it’s lovely to have shows with mass appeal but it’s equally important to bring you shows that will warm your hearts and widen your children’s imaginations. Theatre Lovett are among the very best creators of child centred drama working today.

Their latest show They Called Her Vivaldi is currently touring Ireland once again due to popular demand and can be see here at An Grianán on Sat 4 Nov. The tour culminates at the Irish National Theatre on the Peacock Stage, 30 November – 23 December 2017. This acclaimed production was selected from 100’s of performances for young audiences to showcase in the USA at IPAY (International Performing Arts for Youth) in January 2017 and will undertake an extensive US tour in 2019.

They Called Her Vivaldi is an upbeat comedy adventure about a sensitive musical-prodigy who makes a quiet name for herself in a cacophonous world. As our young heroine journeys over cobblestones and canals, we learn about love, loss, the place of salt in our diet and the courage to lose our footing without losing our way.

The production stars the inimitable Louis Lovett, Ireland’s most experienced and critically acclaimed performer for young audiences and well known on the adult stage. Renowned for his natural, playful ability to entertain, engage and enthral, Louis most recently starring in ‘Dublin By Lamplight’ with Corn Exchange and ‘The Train’ with Rough Magic both at The Abbey Theatre.
