KENNETH BRANAGH’S career continues to mystify me. In the early 1990s he was the poster boy for the RADA’s new wave, his peers included Alan Rickman, Fiona Shaw, and Jonathan Pryce, but it was Branagh who catapulted to fame first through adapting, directing, and acting in big budget adaptations of Shakespeare.

Disney takes over the Royal Theatre

After crossing the globe over years through film, song, television stage shows, and theme parks the magic of Disney is about to finally land in Castlebar when Disney Live! Presents Three Classic Fairy Tales takes over the Royal Theatre this weekend. The Disney magic which has touched so many young and old for decades was very much on show in Liverpool when this writer saw the show, turning the cavernous Echo Arena into one a magical land of fairy princesses, wicked witches, and heroic deeds by princes. The three classic tales of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella, and Beauty and the Beast had the very young and very old alike captivated by the magical stage show as well as humming and singing along with the classic songs that pepper the show. While many of the younger members in attendance joined in on the fun acting out their favourite parts of the stories in the aisles as Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy narrated the story from their enchanted story book, while interacting with the crowd from start to finish.

They agreed. A group was formed and they drew up a mission statement — “To foster, encourage and assist theatrical, cultural, and artistic activities in the Renmore community, but also throughout Galway and its environs, and in so doing, to assist whatever charitable causes are deemed appropriate by the committee.”
