Last weekend, RTÉ Toy Show The Musical came to life thanks to set designer Colin Richmond. Tricycle Street arrived on The Convention Centre's Auditorium stage in this amazing timelapse – watch it here. .
Colin Richmond is the set designer behind some of the UK stage’s most stunning productions. Originally from Ballymoney in Northern Ireland, his credits include The Magician’s Elephant (Royal Shakespeare Company ); Carmen (Opera North); My Best Friend’s Wedding (UK Tour); The Wizard Of Oz (Curve, UK Tour); Merlin (Northern Ballet); Wendy and Peter Pan (Tokyo/ UK); Barnum (UK).
Accessibility for all is of key importance for the Production in keeping with the Toy Show itself. The musical will be accessible to a wide range of audiences, so there will be performances in ISL and a sensory-friendly environment. All shows have dedicated wheelchair spaces. There is a special 30% discount for groups wishing to book either the ISL or sensory-friendly shows on the 16th and 20th of December, respectively.
Toy Show The Musical opens this Saturday, with previews running up to the official Opening Night on Wednesday, 14th December. This new original Irish musical is expected that it will sell right throughout the run, particularly once the first audiences get to see and enjoy what is a truly spectacular, festive family show.
The plot follows twelve-year-old Nell Mooney as she tries to recreate her Mam’s favourite Toy Show night traditions. But not everyone in her family wants to remember the past. Disaster strikes, and with the entire Toy Show in jeopardy, Nell and the local kids must find a way to save the night and keep everyone’s favourite TV show alive.
Toy Show the Musical opens on December 10th at The Convention Centre, Dublin. Tickets priced from €25 are on sale from www.rte.ie/toyshowthemusical
