We are delighted to welcome actor and director Bob Kelly

graduating in 2010. Since then he has performed in the
Louvre, The Abbey, and at the Royal Ballet School.
He is a regular collaborator with Blue Raincoat Theatre

Mouth. Most recently he has played Christy in the Blue
Raincoat’s production of The Playboy of the Western
World and he has just finished performing in Once the
Musical on the Olympia stage this summer.
Bob will work with us throughout 2015/2016 researching
and developing new creative projects, Stories from Sligo,
including an ambitious, new performance project to mark
the 100th anniversary of the 1916 rising Sligo 1916.

Introducing Bob Kelly
Hawk’s Well Productions for 2015/2016
Sligo Sings
We are on a mission to get Sligo singing! From September Hawk’s Well Choirmasters will develop and nurture
6 to 8 new choirs, created from the busiest workplaces in our community. Choirs will perform for colleagues in
their workplaces and later in a major celebration of their achievement at the Sligo Sings evening in the Hawk’s
Well theatre. On the evening, each choir will perform individual songs and then all will join together for the
finale song as one major Sligo Sings choir. If you are interested in finding out more information and how your
company can get involved, contact [email protected] or see page 34.
In the summer of 2015 the Hawk’s Well Theatre will produce and present a new performance piece to mark
the 100th anniversary of the 1916 Rising. This production will bring the history of Sligo circa 1916 to life through
site specific and immersive theatrical experiences at Sligo Gaol, Sligo Courthouse and the surrounding environs.
This performance will place the audience in the middle of the action, offering everyone the opportunity to be
part of Sligo’s shared history.
We are calling on the public to help us reminisce and gather stories about our families and shared history to
create this important story. All who are interested in history, drama and sociological matters are welcome to get
involved. Come along to our Sligo 1916 event on Culture Night and talk to our team.

Directed by Bobby Jones, this Brian Foster play
stars Mary McDonnell in a performance of incredible
depth which chronicles the highs and infinite lows
of Dublin woman, Myra McLoughlin. Motherless
from a young age, and living with a father who
clings increasingly to the dubious solace provided by
drink, Myra sees marriage as her only way out of a
bleak future which already seems pre-destined.

Jealous of Franz’s infatuation with the
beautiful girl, Coppélia, his wife Hildy
begins to suspect things are not all that
they seem. Her curiosity leads to Dr
Copplius laboratories where a magical
world of secrets will change them all
forever! This witty and pertinent ballet
inspired by society’s obsession with
youthful perfection is all the more engaging
for its designer’s nod to the movie glamour
of yesteryear, the captivating Ballet Ireland
dancers (Swan Lake 2014) and the
charming music of Léo Delibes and Tom
Lane. Coppélia will enchant and enthrall
audiences of all ages.

With more 5 star reviews than you could ever wish for,
