The play is a humorous celebration of the story of St. Patrick. It includes the events in St. Patrick’s life mixed with a dash of blarney and stirred with a lucky four-leafed clover.
This play about Saint Patrick features many amusing scenes, Irish expressions and suggestions for music.
When the young Saint Patrick is taken by pirates to Ireland as a slave he is befriended by a leprechaun and clurichaun. St. Patrick shows them how to be kinder fairy-folk to humans, partly thanks to some Irish-dancing sheep.
St. Patrick leaves Ireland and then returns later as a missionary. His two friends act as his companions as he journeys around Ireland banishing snakes, preaching, planting ash trees, meeting with legendary Celtic warriors and less-than-friendly druids.

Saint Patrick is one of the most famous saints in the world and this assembly is designed to entertain and educate audiences and performers alike about his life. The play is highly amusing and yet respectful to the subject matter. The play contains some fun Irish expressions, dancing sheep and some rather inept pirates.
