Outside Mullingar Awards

What a year we have had !!!

The 2016/2017 season was an extremely popular and successful season for TIP. The Night Joe Dolan's Car Broke Down and Outside Mullingar were very well received by our members, patrons and critics. In April TIP attended the Association of Community Theatres of Central Ontario (ACTCO) gala. Here we received numerous nominations and awards.
