Theatre Royal Waterford,Sunday 1st October @ 3pm

Don't miss this wonderful opportunity to see Ireland's favourite children’s TV character up close. The show is a completely interactive experience, with Bosco employing traditional theatre call-and-response methods to interact with the audience, and the audience – often young parents with their small kids – absolutely laps it up.

The Paula Lambert Puppet Theatre has been touring Ireland for over thirty-five years now, in all of that time creating shared memories of wonder and joy for children and adults alike.

Paula Lambert is the youngest daughter of Ireland’s beloved master puppeteer, Eugene Lambert, whose seven-decade career – from Murphy Agus A Cháirde and Finnegan to Wanderly Wagon - shaped the childhoods of generations of Irish children.

Eugene’s legacy includes the Lambert Puppet Theatre and Museum in Monkstown (established 1972), Ireland’s only permanent puppet theatre, and a family tradition of puppetry now in its third generation.

Paula has helped to delight the imagination of Irish children since she herself was a small girl, beginning at a very early age as a puppeteer on Wanderly Wagon, first as one of the mice who lived in the wallpaper and then as one of the squirrels who lived in the loft. Paula went on to appear in the Wanderly Wagon spin-off, Fortycoats, as Spooky the Cat.

Paula graduated in 1981 to a starring role in RTE’s children’s TV show Bosco. Bosco, the irrepressible, eternal five-year-old redhead puppet, appeared on Irish television for three decades and remains a firm favourite for each new generation, with parents taking particular joy in introducing their children to their childhood friend.

A Bosco show is a completely interactive experience, with Bosco employing traditional theatre call-and-response methods to interact with the audience, and the audience – often young parents with their small kids – absolutely laps it up.

    As dry as the SaharaIt seems that whenever the weather in Ireland goes a little bit extreme, we are somehow incapable of dealing with it. It has already happened so far this year with the snow that totally disrupted the country for about a week and also later on when some areas in the country were flooded due to excess rain. Now it is happening again because we are having to deal with a level of sunshine that is virtually unheard of in the country. And a level of sunshine that is going on for a good numbe …
