The Moon and Sixpence Travelling Marionette Theatre


On Monday the 12th of March we were fortunate to have been visited by the Moon and Sixpence Travelling Marionette Theatre company. They put on a marionette puppet show for all the classes in the school about Michlín Óg – the last leprechaun in Ireland who was fiercely protective of the treasure at the end of his rainbow.

The children really enjoyed the show – especially when a few familiar teachers popped up in the story. A big thank you to Ms. Conway for organising this event as part of our Book Week celebrations.



After the show the 6th class got to have a backstage tour. They saw the puppets close up, examined the set and equipment used and got to ask the puppeteers some questions.
