There is nothing that we love more here in Ireland than The Toy Show
So when we learned that a Toy Show musical was in the works we could not contain our excitement.
Now the three leads have been revealed for the upcoming show.
And they are some big names!
Bridgerton and Derry Girls star Jamie Beamish will play the role of Dad, aka Brendan Mooney, the father of the lead character of the musical Nell. Fair City’s Clare Barrett has been cast to play Nell’s Mam, Áine Mooney. The role of Nana will be played by Emmerdale actor Anna Healy.
As for our lead star, Nell, the casting announcement will be made on Friday, 14th October, during a very special Late Late Show reveal!
Speaking today about the casting announcement, the Director of Toy Show The Musical, Séimí Campbell, said: ”Toy Show the Musical celebrates one of our nation’s most loved traditions and in that, recognises the importance of play, the transformative power of the imagination, and the strength, bravery, and resilience of children.
“We have this wonderful opportunity to take many families into the theatre for the first time, and with that comes a responsibility to show them the unequivocal power of theatre – of sitting in a room together with strangers but leaving with some form of shared experience. That connectivity is exactly what Toy Show encapsulates.”
This brand-new musical opens on December 10th at The Convention Centre, Dublin with ticket prices starting at €25.
