As part of the Children's Book Festival, Mayo County Library presents Spring Onion Puppet Theatre's 'Androcles and the Lion'. Androcles a kind hearted African boy, goes to the aid of an injured Lion, only for both to be captured by the evil Slyrenious, animal catcher and circus master to the Roman Emperor. The boy and the beast are lured to Rome to be the star attractions at the Emperors "little party". What fate awaits poor Androcles at the Coliseum? Is he to be lion's lunch?

This wonderful show combines simple dialogue, visual and musical presentation and audience participation to create an over the top pagent of puppetry and pantomime. Why not come along as a mid-term treat to boo the villains and cheer the heros!! All are welcome to this free event - contact Castlebar Library for further details.
