Brian Gilligan on the future of theatre

Something For The Weekend

Friday, January 8th, 2021 - 9 minutes

Verdant Productions presents a new production of The Stories of Hans Christian Andersen in a digital online presentation at venues nationwide. A magical show for all the family to enjoy together.  Hans Christian Andersen was the greatest storyteller in the world and his stories have lived long in children’s hearts and minds. The 1952 film starring Danny Kaye was nominated for six Oscars and was one of the formative MGM technicolour movie classics. It left an impression on all our minds for generations thereafter. In this production, we reimagine his stories through enchanting new digital imagery, featuring well known songs like the Oscar nominated song Thumbelina as well as The Emperor’s New Clothes, The Ugly Duckling, The Little Mermaid.

Trina Mara chats to one of the stars Brian Gilligan who has also performed in "The Commitments" and "The Lion King"

 Tonight is the the final online show with tickets available on www.tht.ie
