Weather Watching all over Ireland

Cahoots NI takes to the road this June

Cahoots NI is delighted to present its new show - The Weather Watchers!

Cahoots NI children's theatre company is back with a brand new production for young children. The Weather Watchers will enchant and amaze young audiences with its infectious combination of story telling, magic and .. rain?!

Archie McStocker has had enough of the weather. Everything he wants to do and everywhere he wants to go is determined by the barometer in Granny Jo's kitchen.

When the barometer is broken Archie and Granny Jo embark on a journey where they encounter some very strange and mysterious happenings and some extreme weather conditions to battle with that demand courage and honesty.

They learn much about each other - along with the weather - but return with a new sense of freedom from the past and from fear of the world outside.

Weather WatchersThe Weather Watchers is an engaging show written by Bernie McGill and produced by Northern Ireland's leading children's theatre company. The production promises to be a truly magical experience for children and their families, and a fun filled excursion for school and community groups.

Paul McEneaney, Artistic Director of Cahoots NI said:

'I'm really excited about this project.The Weather Watchers has all the magic and surprise of our previous productions. Audiences are in for a rare treat, as they will actually get to experience the weather conditions in the theatre - snow, rain, wind. I guess its like mixing theatre with a universal studios ride!'
