Ofegus Theatre Company was established by Leslie Lalor and Niamh Hogan to bring affordable Children's theatre to all. We have 11 years experience producing children's theatre and from our experience has come our passionate belief that exposure to live theatre performance is of great benefit in helping children come to a deeper understanding of themselves and of the wider world. Is there a better way of learning than through fun? Professional theatre for children is almost non-existent. Our aim is to provide it. We brought The Rainbows' End to the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and received fantastic feedback from the children, the parents and the press. Please help us raise the funds to get this amazing children's show to The Mill Theatre, Dundrum, this Festive season.
Disaster strikes the Kingdom of Enchantasia when all the rainbows disappear!!! The Leprechauns (bankers to the magical world) are deeply troubled as they cannot locate their gold. Not only will the Kingdom be in severe financial trouble but, without the rainbows, all colour in the world will drain away, turning everything to black…As the High Council of Magic is in the Veiled Mountains for a secret conference, it is left up to Wendy, a student witch, to try to find the rainbows before it is too late. Meanwhile Captain Swashbuckle, the dreaded pirate, has landed in Enchantasia with First Mate Sebastian. It is the first coastline to spark anything in Sebastian’s memory since Captain Swashbuckle pulled him half-drowned from the sea. They decide to go to the Palace, in disguise, in order to learn what they can about the mysterious land. The Crown Princess is kidnapped! A traitor is suspected! A visit to the traitor’s lair is the only way to save the Princess, and perhaps the rainbows too! But who is brave enough to face such dangers? Will good triumph over evil? Or could this be the rainbows’ end?
