Greenwood-Lander Performing Arts concludes its 67th season on Friday, March 28, with an appearance by Celtic Nights.
Dubbed “The Emigrants’ Bridge: A Night of Music, Song and Dance,” the show, which starts at 7:30 p.m. in the Josephine B. Abney Cultural Center Auditorium, features beautiful ballads and striking choreography. It tells the story of the Irish people’s hopes and dreams, and struggle to find their place in the world.
Tickets are $35 for adults and $30 for children. They can be ordered by going to the GLPA website at GreenwoodLanderPerformingArts.com or by calling the GLPA office at (864) 388-8326.
Celtic Nights has been widely acclaimed for the artistry of its performances. Irish prime minister Enda Kenny said that the troupe has “brought our distinctive and evolving music and dance tradition to the world stage and showcased our tradition in spectacular fashion.”
The upcoming show will mark not only the last date of GLPA’s season – with the exception of a rescheduled and sold-out performance by singer Sandi Patty on Friday, April 4 – but also the last date of Celtic Nights’ American tour, and GLPA executive director Cecily Ferguson said that tickets have been purchased by fans from as far away as Florida and Texas.
“We haven’t had a music and dance production of this magnitude since Ballroom with a Twist or The Moscow Ballet,” she said. “This is one you do not want to miss.”
