Don’t miss out on your last chance to see Tydavnet Drama Troupe’s production of “Moll” which will take place in the Garage Theatre, Monaghan, on Thursday 19th and Friday 20th April 2018 at 8pm sharp. Tickets for Friday are almost sold out, but there are still tickets available for Thursday, but be quick! This butter-wouldn’t-melt production is a place of hapless priests and pushy housekeepers in a changeless world. Moll may be self-interested and cruel to the point of psychosis, but her combination of entrepreneurship and extortion builds a school, fixes a church and secures her a pension. Contact the Garage theatre 047 39777 as soon as possible to reserve seating. It’s a fantastic play with a brilliant cast, so why not give yourself a good laugh and get out and enjoy it!

Good reasons to support “Moll” – You are supporting Tydavnet Drama Troupe who have a long tradition of rehearsing and putting on plays in the community. Each year the group welcomes and nurtures new talent. Drama is a way of meeting new people and new ideas. It supports Tydavnet Community Centre as a community venue, and it gives to local charity groups. Cast members gain new skills in production, direction, makeup, set design, sound and lighting, publicity, and event management. Story telling is an integral part of Tydavnet heritage – the drama troupe are part of this story telling process. Some of their plays are light hearted; some are deep and profound. All offer a message to the audience. So, please watch out for new dates, go see the show! You’ll become a part of the vibrant, long-cherished tradition of the local storytelling. “The stage is not merely the meeting place of all the arts, but is also the return of art to life.” — Oscar Wilde, 1891

Good reasons to support The Garage Theatre – You are supporting the dreams and talents of local and visiting productions. Theatres are full of culture, – there’s something for all ages and interests there. You are supporting local employment in the Garage Theatre. The Garage Theatre has nurtured national and international acting talent e.g. Charlene McKenna, Aoibhinn McGinnity, Pat Deery, Joanne Brennan, Paul McElroy, Declan Reynolds (to name only a few) and many others whom you have seen in small parts on TV and advertisements. You are giving back to your own community – it’s not so long ago that you would have to go to Dundalk or Dublin to see big name productions on stage, now the Garage has a full calendar of events of all sorts. Your contribution could potentially go towards the funding for a set for a bigger show, or for puppets for a children’s production. Filling those seats is important in order to keep the theatre scene thriving in smaller communities! Theatre—every play—deals with the basic aspects of our lives that we are constantly trying to understand. Going to a play allows us to relax, have fun, be shocked, become upset, or ponder a serious issue. Most of all, theatre helps us to better understand ourselves and our world. The time is now! Go to a play and support the Garage theatre community. And best of all, it’s a great and reasonably priced night out for you and all your friends.
