Dotty is a baby Fire Dragon.  She lives in a dusty old castle with her grumpy dad, Mr Dragon.  She loves to watch the children playing in the village below, and wishes she could play with them too!

One day Dotty has a brilliant idea - she will fly down to the village and say hello!  But will Dotty make new friends, or will the village folk chase her back home again?

Told with puppetry, song and high-energy storytelling, this fantastic family show is the perfect treat for little explorers and their grown-ups.  There are lots of laughs and plenty of surprises, and there's even a fire-breathing dragon!

Starcamp Summer Camp - Monday 3rd - Friday 7th July,  9.30am - 2.30pm  -  Cost €90 per child, €160 for 2 siblings, €220 for 3 siblings. Installment options available.

STARCAMP is the ultimate, all encompassing summer camp experience that is so much more than a performing arts camp. It is a place where boys & girls will be encouraged to use their imaginations, their voices and their bodies for a mind blowing array of activities. They will play our many camp games (new& old), do arts and crafts with a difference, meet a real superhero and learn some moves in our all new masterclass, we will watch them come out of their shells in our news and weather reporting (which they will produce & record themselves, some of which will feature on STARCAMP TV) and of course they will also sing, dance and act each day – All this and more while STARCAMP ensure to live by their CORE ETHOS of building their confidence and self-esteem. And don’t forget- STARCAMP is known for it’s little surprises along the way too.

STARCAMP children have appeared on shows such as Sattitude, Ireland AM, The Late Late Toy Show, have met with Jedward and Westlife, have sang with Hometown, Ryan Tubridy, Zig and Zag and Dustin and have released singles into the charts.

Open to ALL BOYS & GIRLS AGED 4-12.

9:30am – 2:30pm for 5 days.

There will be a Finale Showcase approximately an hour before collection time on the last day. (Please note that children will only do their song and dance at this point, they will perform their movie scene for each other earlier in the day followed by a little “awards ceremony”!).

Children must wear comfortable clothes / shoes and bring a packed lunch & plenty to drink. (No chewing gum or nuts allowed please.)

All the talented, qualified staff are fully trained and Garda Vetted.
