Grinagog Theatre

Hand-knitted bath time fun combining splendid music with the sort of audience participation which is crucial for early years theatregoers.”
Mark Brown, Sunday Heraldon Row Your Boat


Row Your Boat sets sail for Edinburgh!

We are delighted to have been invited to perform our popular show by the Edinburgh International Book Festival this summer. It's an amazing festival to be a part of, with over 700 events lined up. We hope to see you in the special Bosco tented theatre to help Daphne make more bubbles for her bath.

Row Your Boat Reviews

Row Your Boat got two lovely reviews from Mary Brennan at The Herald who gave it four stars, and Mark Brown at Sunday Herald.

Row Your Boat set to sail soon!

After a break from making performances to look after Jack, Grinagog's Artistic Director Clare McGarry is taking the reins for their next show! Row your Boat will be performed by Clare and one other actor and will be a comic blend of interaction, music and visual stimuli. Clare is looking forward to seeing her regular schools and venues again and meeting lots of new cheery little faces over June and July 2016.

Lovely review of The Edibles 2015
