Barnstorm has not rested over the summer with exciting developments in all areas – we hosted a number of arts-for-children presentations in The Barn as part of Kilkenny Arts Festival, and started devising a brand new show with theatre director/deviser Sarah Argent from Cardiff and members of our Acting Ensemble.

September sees the start back of our Youth Theatre groups and a new Adult Theatre Club group (20 new adult members who will embark on a two-year training programme).

Members of the Barn Owl Players are in rehearsal and preparation for a challenging new production in the Watergate Theatre from 28th to 30th September. DOUBLE BILL by James McLure sees his two most famous short plays, Laundry & Bourbon and Lone Star, presented in a double-bill to Kilkenny audiences. A must-see production that shows off the best in home-grown talent!

Barnstorm then departs on a festival’s tour of Ireland with its hugely successful production of The Song from the Sea by Mike Kenny for children 4+ years and families.
