Theatre Royal StrongWomanSience


StrongWomen Science is a circus science show for children and families starring two women scientists turned circus performers.
Aoife Raleigh is an engineer, Maria Corcoran an environmental scientist.

Ever wanted to know how you balance a chair on your chin, if you can juggle liquid, or how circus performers eat fire? StrongWomen Aoife and Maria reveal the scientific secrets behind their astounding tricks. In a fun, lively and fast-paced family circus performance, find out how jugglers, acrobats and hula hoop artists use science to create their amazing acts.
StrongWomen Science doesn’t only illustrate scientific facts. It seeks to promote enquiry, inventiveness and accessibility in science, making it open to all, in particular young women and girls. In addition to demonstrating scientific principles in fun and accessible ways, it looks at the worth of failure and the power of teamwork, both shared by science and circus.
Jaw-dropping, informative and fun. StrongWomen Science’s performance was incredible! I loved every minute!

Fantastic way to enthuse children about STEM.

Brilliant – juggling liquids for crying out loud! Very impressive people.

A most enjoyable, empowering event – so inspiring and enthusiastic. I will be thinking of the StrongWomenScience team for a long time to come.

If ever there was role models I would like my own daughter to have – the two StrongWomen would be it!

Kids from 4 to 15 years old were equally enthralled during the workshop, it was fantastic to see such enthusiasm, excitement and joy from the audience. Parents were bowled over at the quality and success of the engagement and show as a whole.

Theatre Royal Glenn Murphy


With Glenn Murphy

David Hennessy Musical & Dramatic Society are delighted to present “A Christmas To Remember” starring local singer Glenn Murphy (Tenor). After his success travelling the world with Celtic Woman on their international tour, singing onstage in the 3 Arena for Adele, and appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres show, he is excited to be performing in Waterford once again. With Musical Direction by David Hayes (Riverdance, Voice Of Ireland), Glenn will take you on a journey with some of the most iconic, magical and memorable Christmas songs ever written. With such classics as “All I Want For Christmas Is You” “Oh Holy Night” “Last Christmas” “Fairytale Of New York” “When A Child Is Born” and many more, this promises to be one of the musical highlights of the year.

After Glenn’s sold out concerts “From Me To You” in January 2019 and “Home For Christmas” December 2019 at Garter Lane Waterford City and Dungarvan, this is sure to be a wonderful night’s entertainment to get you in the Christmas spirit. The perfect Christmas gift for all!
