Beauty and the Beast Show
My Name is Louisa and I went to see a Show in the Panto Tivoli Theatre in Dublin 8 It was off St. Thomas Street, with Sugarloaf Gang from Bray with Nicola Murphy and Karolina, We went to see Beauty and the Beast Show on Saturday 8th of January 2011.
Karolina said she really enjoyed Beauty and the Beast Panto Show, It was very modern and funny performance, The actors were beautiful and colorful costumes, They sang top songs like Lady Gaga’s songs, Etc. It was great interaction between the audience and people on the Stage, We danced and sang along with them, I can truly recommend this show, We took our pictures with the actors afterwards.
As part of the OCR Animal Care course we have been researching working with animals. We visited Dulin Zoo where we met the Zoo keeper, toured the d.s.p.c.a in Dublin and w.s.p.c.a, Copsewood Avaries.
We have carried out different work placements in animal establishments such as Bray pet Shop, D.C.B and a Cattery. We really enjoyed the experiences and learned lots from the course. Some of us would love to work more with the animals. We put a lot of work into it. We are looking forward to getting our certificates in the very near future.
We would like to thank all the people who helped facilitated our work placements with the animals in the various locations .D.c.b, Kilcoole Cattery and Barry from Bray Pet Shop.
Irish TV animation includes Punky, a character with Down syndrome-
The new RTE series Punky, which will be aimed at pre-school children, features a six-year-old girl who lives with her family, and encounters daily adventures like any other child.
Gerard O’Rourke, from production company Monster Animation, says Punky is a playful little girl who overcomes many daily challenges, but she is slightly differently to other children.
Already international TV companies from the United States, UK, and Australia are showing keen interest.
