POST PRIMARY SHOWS
There’s nothing more exciting than a day at the theatre. We bring stories to life on stage with productions happening throughout the year.
Throughout the year we offer lots of creative learning opportunities for students of all ages. Your class can experience a live theatre show, enjoy world-class art exhibitions, or enjoy a creative workshop led by professional artists.
Working closely with the current curriculum, we’ve created a number of opportunities to support post-primary school learning at The Market Place Theatre, Armagh.
When it comes to bringing a lesson alive, The Market Place Theatre, Armagh is the place to be. We’ve welcomed thousands of school children to the Market Place Theatre and counting, so if you haven’t been to visit us yet here are a few ideas of how to get the most from your Market Place Theatre visit.
Film Screening: The Breadwinner | Fri 8 Mar at 11am (teachers go free)
From executive producer Angelina Jolie and multi-award-winning director Nora Twomey, ‘The Breadwinner’ tells the story of Parvana, an 11-year-old girl growing up under the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2001.
When her father is wrongfully arrested, Parvana disguises herself as a boy in order to support her family. With dauntless perseverance, Parvana draws strength from the stories her father told her, and ultimately risks her life to discover if he is still alive. Equal parts thrilling and enchanting, ‘The Breadwinner’ is a timely and inspiring tale about the transcendent power of stories, and their potential to unite and heal us all.
Contains moderate threat, violence.
