Don't miss 'The Unlikely Hero: A Christmas Story' at The Glens Centre

Are you looking for that Christmas feeling? 25 young people have put together a Christmas story to warm your heart.

The Unlikely Hero: A Christmas Story plays in The Glens Centre, Manorhamilton this weekend Friday, December 13 and Saturday 14.

MJ thinks he is dreaming when his toys wake him up to tell him that his little brother, Tommy (who wandered into the woods alone to look for the perfect Christmas) was kidnapped by the Fearr Dorcha and carried off to Tir na nOg.

Once deep in the forest, MJ comes to realise that Tir na nOg is a very real, very magical and very dangerous place.

With his unlikely companions, a magical map and a packet of marshmallows he is sent on a whirlwind adventure with talking rabbits, meddling Merrows, dancing puppets, Rat Soldiers and a captivating Fairy Queen to save his little brother and bring him home in time for Christmas.

This is a community based collaboration with The Glens Centre and the award-winning The Rabbit's Riot Theatre Company featuring a cast of 25 young people under the age of 18 and featuring the amazing Kathleen Tahaney's Dancers!
