The program enables families to face the weight of illness together, providing a "home-away-from-home". ??


Since 2004, RMHC Ireland has helped in excess of 4,274 families from all over Ireland. Now, they are focused on building a new Ronald McDonald House alongside the New Children's Hospital in Dublin 8.

15th Jan More about "Little Shop of Horrors" Josh Moffatt (PRO)

More about "Little Shop of Horrors":

It has been said that people will do anything for love, but what exactly does "anything" mean? "Little Shop of Horrors" follows the story of Seymour Krelborn, a meek flower shop assistant who pines for his co-worker, Audrey. ?

After discovering that the florist’s main attraction - a "strange and interesting plant" - feeds solely on human blood, Seymour must battle with his morals and ultimately decide if fame and fortune are worth the havoc that is wreaked in the seemingly most innocent and unlikely of places. ?

"Little Shop of Horrors" auditions take place next week! ?

15th Jan More about "Tina's Idea of Fun" Josh Moffatt (PRO)

More about "Tina's Idea of Fun":

Tina is struggling to get through to her son. She is haunted by her past, stuck on the drink, and it seems her connection with her son is only becoming weaker - she will do nearly anything to get his attention.

Paddy is a quiet lad just looking for a friend. He is a strong Republican and, along with Tina’s son, heads to the protest against Queen Elizabeth II's arrival. Tina hosts a post protest party that only leads to disaster. ?

14th Jan More about "Derry Girls" Josh Moffatt (PRO)

More about "Derry Girls":

"Derry Girls: The Musical", adapted from the hit TV series, captures all of your favourite moments, accompanied by the iconic soundtrack. ?

The show follows Erin, Orla, Clare, Michelle, and James as they navigate the delicate inner workings of teenhood during The Troubles.

From landing themselves in the principal's office with Sister Michael to back-up dancing in Orla's aerobics routine, the chaotic five get up to all kinds of mischief as they discover the true meaning of friendship - acceptance.

However, acceptance is far from being understood during The Troubles as the group face a tragic and pinnacle moment in Irish history.

13th Jan More about "Man's Best Friend" Josh Moffatt (PRO)

More about "Man's Best Friend":

Many people would go quite far in order to be reunited with their favourite pooch. But how far would you go for the reward…?

Colin and Lewis push their own limits in pursuit of a high reward, nights on the town, and being able to pay rent. Things quickly get out of hand in this farcical comedy, filled with dastardly schemes and cover-ups. ?
