The Nonsense Room presents Shark in the Park at The Source Thurles

Timothy Pope goes to the park and looks through his telescope. Everything he sees he thinks it is a shark!

Nick Sharratt is famous for his, clever, colourful and funny clever keyhole books for early years and now all three ‘Shark’ books have had a triumphant makeover for the stage. Sharratt’s concept in Shark in the Park and its two successors is simple: Timothy Pope looks through his telescope, sees what he thinks is a shark’s dorsal fin and shouts, “There’s a shark in the park!”, the page turns and it’s only a cat’s ear, a crow’s wing or an Elvis quiff.

The Nonsense Room have adapted Sharratt’s idea and added a few extra characters to help it zing along live on stage. The back story they have worked in, with suitably grown-up asides, is elaborate enough to give this the legs to last an hour without losing either pre-school children or their parents.

The Nonsense Room presents  Shark in the Park at The Source Thurles

The show is carried along by high energy performances, jolly songs (especially Dad’s Elvis impersonation) and plenty of joining in and shouting out “there’s a Shark in the Park”! Featuring a whimsical display of imagination and, no doubt, a few real-life experiences of parenthood, the makers of this fun-filled show pull out all the stops for families. Suitable for children ages 2 to 8 years.
