Top theatre in Skerries

Fergal Maddock

Skerries Mills was the venue for yet another wonderful evening of outdoor theatre showcasing the talent of members of the Chapterhouse Theatre Group.

This time round, the popular 'Wind and the Willows' got an airing and the audience were left amused by the antics of Badger, Ratty Mole and Toad. What starts as a search for the best picnic spot rapidly turns into the most hilarious of escapades.

With the bumptious Toad's heart set on a shiny new motorcar and his very liberty soon at stake, will his faithful friends come to his rescue - and will he let them?

Alive with music and song, this magical family show was presented in beautiful traditional costume and featured a woodland parade during the interval for everyone to join in with!

Fun and frolics were  aplenty with this adaptation of the classic novel loved by children and adults alike. That brings an end to Chapterhouse's visit to Fingal this year but undoubtedly they will be back again next year. The group has become firm favourites every summer.
