A Celtic Christmas comes to The Grandel Theater
Tomáseen Foley's A Celtic Christmas comes to The Grandel Theater on December 13 at 7.30pm.
This is the first time in the show's 26 year touring history that it will play St. Louis. There are two St. Louis-based performers in the cast this year; Eimear Arkins (fiddle & vocals) and Natalie Wagner (dance).
A Celtic Christmas springs from the infinitely rich treasury of Ireland’s cultural heritage. It is a re-creation of a night before Christmas in the West of Ireland in the 1940s when neighbors gathered at each other's houses to share music, song, dance and stories. On stage, the spirit of Christmas dances to life and glows brightly when the artists - ‘the neighbors’ - gather to create a wholesome, cultural, family feast directly from the rich table of communal life in the west of Ireland. By recreating just such a night on stage, Tomáseen Foley’s A Celtic Christmas brings the timeless tradition to audiences across the country.
