The Market Place Theatre in Armagh has some real treats in store as part of its new autumn/winter season.

Family show ‘Jurassic Adventures’, which will be staged on Monday, September 28, is set on a magical island. Get transported to a prehistoric place, and even witness the birth of a baby dinosaur, but beware of the T Rex mother who wants her egg back!

The adventure allows audiences to follow the footsteps of Doctor Grant’s team of explorers, and laugh at their antics, as they search for proof that dinosaurs still exist.

Friday, October 2 will see singer songwriter Paul Brady takes to the stage, where he will be performing some of his most popular songs including ‘Arthur McBride’ and ‘The Lakes Of Pontchartrain’ as well as ‘Nobody Knows’, ‘Nothing But The Same Old Story’, ‘The Island’ and ‘The World Is What You Make It’.

Recently voted Most Significant English Language Play of the 20th Century, ‘Waiting For Godot’ will be at The Market Place on Thursday, October 29. Samuel Beckett’s 60-year-old masterpiece is a ground-breaking, anarchic meditation on the meaning of life and death.

There’s a Halloween party special on Saturday, October 31, when the ‘Dirty Dancing Show’ showcases some of the great songs from hit chick-flick movies and musicals such as ‘Dirty Dancing’, ‘Footloose’, ‘Fame’, ‘Flashdance’ and many more.

It will be performed by leading singers and dancers from London’s West End.

Classical ballet ‘Swan Lake’ returns on Saturday, November 7, performed by the world-renowned Moscow Ballet in a production of the timeless favourite set to Tchaikovsky’s score.

Meanwhile, the 2015 Christmas pantomime ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ arrives in December. This magical adventure is presented by a fabulous cast of characters, and bursting with catchy songs.
