The Gaiety Theatre is Dublin’s oldest theatre in Dublin, it being the home to some of the most expressive and flamboyantly talented stage performers in Ireland for nearly 150 years. The attractive, columned brick building reflects its 19th century heritage – within its historic walls shows are hosted in various theatrical genres all year round. As the theatre’s name implies, comedies receive top billing – the events schedule encompasses Christmas pantomimes, light-hearted comic romances, emotional and heart wrenching tragicomedies, and lively musicals.
Having been a popular family venue for so many years, today the Gaiety Theatre draws theatregoers resident locally and visiting Dublin. The festive season is especially busy, with the traditional Christmas panto drawing full houses through the entire school holidays. Many age-old practices are kept alive, with the audience encouraged to sing along to the musical numbers played upon stage, while the occasional surprise appearance of the Good Fairy has her throwing sweets at kids in the audience!
