Summer puppet theatre at GPO Witness History

For the first time in the GPO, witness the many stories of the different characters from the McCormick Puppet Theatre, a lively show for all ages!

The courtyard in GPO Witness History will come alive with the sights and sounds of our Summer Puppet Theatre which the kids are sure to enjoy!


Join us for horrible histories and enjoy this fun-filled show about Mischievous Mickey who lives on a Victorian street in Dublin.  He spends most of his time getting into mischief as he roams the streets. Enjoy the fun and games as the local Police Constable is taken on a game of cat and mouse as he tries to catch Mickey and put him in the workhouse. To add to the mix, watch out for the dancers, jugglers, horses and acrobats who have escaped the local circus!
