Irish Mystique is a bold new experience in Irish dance and music featuring a soaring musical score composed by Daniel Nelson and intense choreography unlike any other show of its kind. This powerful production has wowed audiences of all ages!
The production takes the stage by storm with epic tales straight out of Celtic Myth and Legend. Moving stories about the Immortal Selkies grace the stage with a love tale of sadness and loss. The legendary Pictish warriors and their warrior maidens stir the most primal of emotions with thunderous choreography and rhythms accompanied by Celtic war drums. Other tales include the shadowy Sidhe folk or the fairies of old who scorn and evade the world of men and the legend of the pirate queen Grace O'Malley who led her fanatically devoted crews on numerous rebellions against their English oppressors. The music weaves the tales ever more strongly with symphonic scores and electronic rock undertones backed by traditional Irish instrumentation.
The show is rounded out with a stellar cast of world class musicians and singers and a dance troupe with award winning champion performers. Don't miss this exciting new production!

An inspiring musical about friends and artists struggling with addiction, poverty, AIDS and most of all, love.
Set in the East Village of New York City, RENT is about falling in love, finding your voice and living for today. Winner of the TONY Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, RENT has become a pop cultural phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates with audiences of all ages.
Based loosely on Puccini's La Boheme, RENT follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York's Lower East Side, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. The physical and emotional complications of the disease pervade the lives of Roger, Mimi, Tom, and Angel. Maureen deals with her chronic infidelity through performance art; her partner, Joanne, wonders if their relationship is worth the trouble. Benny has sold out his Bohemian ideals in exchange for a hefty income and is on the outs with his former friends. Mark, an aspiring filmmaker, feels like an outsider to life in general. How these young bohemians negotiate their dreams, loves, and conflicts provides the narrative thread to this groundbreaking musical.
This is theatre at its best - exuberant, passionate, and joyous.
Book, Music and Lyrics by Jonathan Larson
