A Standing Ovation!

25 May

Today we are celebrating the success of our second bi-annual Abbey Theatre performance which saw seven of LauraLynn’s little stars take to the stage!

The original script entitled ‘The Much More Magnificent Seven’, written by Paul Timoney, follows the adventures of seven children from LauraLynn through a magical story filled with bravery, action, excitement and thrills. A show-stopping performance by each actor wowed the crowds while the tale of dragons, unicorns and victory ensured this performance was anything but ordinary!

For the second time in its history, the curtains in the Abbey Theatre raised to a full wheelchair-centred production, with original soundtrack, set design and costumes. This unique performance was held in conjunction with the Abbey Theatre, Kids Classics and the National Gallery of Ireland. The original score was developed by Kids Classics at the National Concert Hall, while each star of the performance had a costume designed specifically for their wheelchair by the National Gallery of Ireland.

Parents, siblings, family and friends were in attendance, who all joined in the celebrations of this magnificent performance. Each child was given the full celebrity treatment with hair, makeup and costumes provided to jazz up the day.

Family time is precious and as the only children’s hospice in the state, LauraLynn provides essential support to families at the toughest of times in the hospice, in the hospital, in the community or in their home, whatever the child and family wish.
