With today's side deal, $15 gets you two tickets to the December 18 performance of Irish Christmas in America, a collection of traditional Irish music and dance productions presented at Carlow University's Antonian Theatre by the Irish Partnership (up to a $44 value).
Fiddler and producer Oisín Mac Diarmada expertly employs the arts of music and dance to unite Irish history with the story of emigration to America under the umbrella of the holiday season. Irish-infused accordion, harp, fiddle, and dancing feet beat rhythmically on taut eardrums, while historical photos of Ireland are projected onto the stage's backdrop, creating a multi-sensory experience akin to a sheep-drawn sleigh-ride full of shepherd's pie. Irish Christmas in America is an entertaining and educational experience for the whole family, while popular holiday carols follow Irish ballads like a conga line of Santas and Irish poets. Celtic skeptics can check out videos of performances from Christmases past to get a glimpse of Antonian Theatre's Christmas future.
