VPA is pleased to present FINN McCOOL AND HIS FEARLESS WIFE. Join the town full of comical characters in Limerick, Ireland, where delightfully mischievous little leprechauns Shillelagh, Shay and Shannon help orchestrate the fun! Between them and boastful Finn McCool, there’s a story hiding behind every bush! Thank goodness his fearless wife, Oona, has been clever enough to get Finn out from between many rocks and hard places.
