The ultimate theatrical feast MOTHER GOOSE comes to Bord Gáis Energy Theatre




We regret to announce that John Bishop is unable to appear in this week’s run of Mother Goose at Dublin’s Bord Gais Energy Theatre.


Mr Bishop has taken compassionate leave from the show.


Gabriel Fleary, the Holby City and RSC actor and Mr. Bishop’s standby will play the role of Vic Goose alongside Ian McKellen as Mother Goose.


We are egg-static to announce the pantomime MOTHER GOOSE will have its Irish premiere in Dublin this March.


Ian McKellen is coming to Bord Gáis Energy Theatre – with a hilarious comedy for all ages that critics have described as “a total hoot” (★★★★★, Broadway World), “a solid gold hit” (★★★★★, The Stage) and absolutely “glorious” (★★★★★, Daily Telegraph).


Meet Mother Goose (McKellen) and her husband Vic. Running an Animal Sanctuary for waifs and strays, they live a wholesome life inside an abandoned Debenhams. But when a magical goose comes a-knocking, will fame & fortune get the better of them?!

Will Ma’s feathers get ruffled? Will Pa tell everyone to get stuffed?! And is their humble life about to turn fowl? Get ready for fairies with hefty vocal chords, puppets with tap dance qualifications and impeccably constructed mayhem that will quack up the whole family.


Mother Goose is a live entertainment spectacle not to be missed – full of fun, musical comedy, star power and surprises that will make you honk out loud. This cheeky fairytale is exactly “the kind of knockabout entertainment that we all need” (The Times) and “infectious fun” (Time Out) from start to finish.


SPECIAL EFFECTS: This production may contain Strobe Lightning, Flashing Lights, Smoke and Haze.

AGE GUIDANCE: 4+. All patrons aged 16 or under must be seated next to an accompanying parent/guardian.
