The Creative Arts Team offers multi-media theatre programmes in schools exploring the Christian celebrations of Christmas and Easter. Drama, dance, puppets, music and other performing arts are used in churches and community events throughout the year.
The Christmas and Easter shows are 45 minute action-packed theatre productions aimed to help the audience explore the true meanings of these special holidays in a fun and interactive way. The shows bring together a wide range of performance methods such as puppets, music, dance, drama, magic tricks, and much more!
The shows tour around Ireland, mainly in the Midlands area but have also visited County Donegal in the past. They have been well received by communities, schools, and churches since 2005.
The team also uses music, dance, drama, puppetry, ballooning, gospel illusions, and storytelling on board the Big Red Bus, in church events, community programmes and more.
These are all fun and unique ways of exploring scripture, sharing the good news about Jesus and presenting moral and community issues (such as reconciliation and justice) in a way that provokes people to think. The arts give voice to marginalised members of our communities and enable people to dialogue with one another across traditional divides.
