Busy season at Town Hall Theatre Busy season at Town Hall Theatre

Galway’s Town Hall Theatre has just launched its new Summer/Autumn brochure which promises plenty of entertainment for audiences throughout July, August and September, with a range of local, national and international theatre, music, comedy, dance and film at that venue and also at the Black Box Theatre.

The Town Hall is hosting many screenings for Galway Film Fleadh, from July 11-16,  and multiple shows for the Galway International Arts Festival, from July 17-30. Details of these are included in the brochure which can be downloaded at and is also available from the venue, 091 569777.

Theatre highlights include Druid Theatre Company with DruidO’Casey, South Africa’s Baxter Theatre Centre with The Life & Times of Michael K, and productions by Aidan Dooley, Seamus O’Rourke, Michael Patric, Paddy Cullivan and SamePage Theatre Company.

Teaċ Daṁsa, which wowed audiences at the Black Box with Mám in November, returns to the venue next month when the dance company will present Michael Keegan-Dolan’s critically acclaimed How To Be A Dance In Seventy-Two Thousand Easy Lessons. This is a co-production with the Gate Theatre for the Arts Festival.

Later on in the season, there will be musicals from Twin Productions, with Aladdin Jnr for all the family, Bravo Theatre Group with Calendar Girls, and a very special Playboy of the Western World: The Musical. This is a fundraiser for Pete Nelson – a valued member of Galway’s arts community.

There’s a diverse music programme, with performances by the A Capella Knights, Eddi Reader and the Alan Kelly Gang, a Made in Tennessee country night, and Chris Kavanagh singing Luke Kelly. Audiences can look forward to singer Aimee Banks in concert on Culture Night in September; the beautiful South, Always South (the story of Ernest Shackleton) featuring Kildare County Orchestra; and Flight, an exciting new opera from Opera Collective Ireland, in association with the Irish Chamber Orchestra.

Other highlights include a spoken-word event, presented by Poetry Ireland/SoFFT Productions, featuring Danez Smith, Hollie Mc Nish and SÍOMHA, and a special film event from Little John Nee as well as one from Little Cinema/Galway City of Film.

There will be comedy from Bridesmaids, Anne Gildea, Fred Cooke and Peter Mc Gann, as well as A Night at the Theatre With Groucho Marx by Dave Young. Bingo Loco returns to the Black Box while Dreamboys will be onstage in the Town Hall on the same night.

For children and teenagers, there are special song writing and percussion workshops at the Black Box from musician and composer Jesse Kennedy and U2 drum technician Sam O’Sullivan in early July.

Tickets for all events are now on sale. Go to for more information and for bookings.
