Blackbird bring on the stars

By Kieran Hughes

A North Belfast theatre company for children and young people is bringing its latest production to a Newtownabbey stage this week. Blackbird Theatre, who are based in St Gerard’s Community Hall on the Antrim Road, bring Bone Idol to the Courtyard Theatre in Ballyearl tonight (Thursday), tomorrow and Saturday.

The play tells the story of a teenager who dreams of becoming a professional singer – but comes up against his disapproving mother.

Blackbird, which caters from children from five-years-old to 16, is run by performing arts professional Maura O’Reilly.

Tickets for Bone Idol are available from the Courtyard Theatre on the night priced at £7 for adults and £5 for children or through the Box Office on 02890340202.
