CRITICALLY acclaimed and smash hit show Essence of Ireland is coming to The Playhouse Theatre in Weston-super-Mare this autumn.
Capturing the true spirit of the Emerald Isle, Essence of Ireland is a breathtaking show of brilliant choreography, superb musicianship and dazzling costumes.
Set against the backdrop of Ireland, England and America in the 20th century and inspired by true events, Essence of Ireland tells a story of love, joy, happiness and heartache endured by Cora McGowan and Sean Dempsey as they are separated by emigration from each other and their beloved Ireland.
This moving story told through music, song and dance is a celebration of all things Irish and will take you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions giving audiences a unique Irish experience.
With a selection of the finest dancers and musicians, the show features original choreography and music, together with Irish classics such as "Galway Girl", "Irish Rover", "Song for Ireland", "Danny Boy", "Carrickfergus" and Ireland's Call".
St Patrick's Day is celebrated once a year throughout the world, but in Essence of Ireland it is celebrated every show.
"If you liked Riverdance, Lord of the Dance and Spirit of the Dance, you will love this show because it's even better," Southampton Daily Echo.
The show will also feature new video footage to enhance this wonderful story, which is based on true events in Ireland.
Show Producer and Director, Ross Mills, said: "It's great to be back touring the UK and we hope our fans love the new pieces we have added to the show."
Essence of Ireland will be at the Playhouse, Weston-super-Mare, on Saturday 12 October, at 7.30pm. Tickets, priced at £21.50, Concessions £20 or groups 1 in 10 free, are available on 01934 645 544 or online at http://tinyurl.com/qcsuzlp target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://tinyurl.com/677l7bh" target="_blank">http://tinyurl.com/677l7bh
