Before producing Castle Gillian in its current digital form, it was conceived and written for the musical stage.
It has always been the intention of the creators that this wonderful Irish story will have its own life as a ‘live’ theatrical production separate to, and apart from, the innovative, immersive, digital experience.
The most important question is: Will the live theatrical version be the same or different from the digital version?
The short answer is that both versions share the same storyline of Maurice Walsh’s enchanting novel. The longer answer is that, on the stage, while that story will require a similar level of inspiration and flair from a production team and actors to fully capture its essence, it will be endowed with unique attributes not contained in its digital version – that is to say, the ‘magic of theatre’.
Whether Castle Gillian is experienced as a digital production or a live theatre show, the story remains the same – enthralling, endearing and essentially Irish.
