Far beneath the big oak tree, another world awaits - it’s the Wunderground and a new night has just begun...
On Sunday, February 27, Roscommon Arts Centre welcome back the wonderful Ceol Connected with their brand new family show WUNDERGROUND. Through a combination of music, song, puppetry, and storytelling that Ceol Connected is renowned for, WUNDERGROUND invites children to think about the magic of the natural world that is all around us and also reveals how humans, animals, plants are all connected and that we need to mind and take care of the earth and the environment.
Badger has woken up from his slumber, and is about to go on his usual rounds. Rabbit has returned from her daily adventures to the Woverground. Something however, is not quite right. The earth has become unusually dry, and the tree and its many inhabitants are beginning to get very thirsty! Join Badger and Rabbit as they embark on a daring quest to save their home.
WUNDERGOUND is an unforgettable musical adventure for children aged 3 plus that combines mesmerising original music and song, captivating puppetry, and the epic adventures of Badger and Rabbit as they embark on a daring quest to save their home.
Performance times are 12pm and 2pm. Tickets are €8 each/family of four ticket is €28.
