Who we are

Since we were founded in 1970s, we have delighted audiences in schools, festivals throughout Ireland and around the world. Through music, storytelling and drama, we provide an experience that is both entertaining and educational. Our colourful costumes evoke a sense of tradition and history and encapsulate the spirit of the Wren boys and the ancient house visiting traditions of Ireland, where the kitchen floor became the stage. The Rhyming tradition is a celebration of the ‘theatre of the people

What we do

We encourage a high level of participation from students in drama, music and storytelling. Dressed in traditional Mummer costumes and masks we offer drama, music, storytelling, dance and traditional games. Our performances help the students develop music appreciation, confidence through performance and important social skills as well as promote unity and tolerance. Most importantly our shows are fun! Live performances are combined with online resources via our Digital Classroom.
