On Friday October 10 comes a teeny weeny show for the very youngest of audiences! TiNY is small enough to pop up anywhere and is suitable for 0-12 months. The show is performed to just a few babies at a time and is full of magical sounds, lights, and textures.
On Tuesday October 14, Roscommon Arts Centre in conjunction with Baboro welcome The Odyssey Experience. Suitable for ages 8-12, this is an interactive show adapted from Homer’s The Odyssey and fuelled by the imagination of the audience, as they, together with the actors, portray many of the characters and help create the show!
The Exploration Dome pays a visit on Thursday October 23. With screenings of educational films such as The Enchanted Reef, Dynamic Earth, and Back to the Moon this is a fun and interactive way to explore science, astronomy, and geography for 4-12 year olds.
