THE charm of the Emerald Isle is coming to Worcester.
The Celtic Dream show has been created to bring audiences a selection of the finest dancers, award-winning choreographers and top vocalists and musicians from around Ireland.
Among its cast are the Dream Tenors, a trio of young male vocalists with a very special sound.
The trio were recently invited by Tourism Ireland to support music icon Van Morrison in a performance at St James’ Palace especially for Irish ministers and members of the English royal family.
Show creator and producer Pete Tobit said it was the first time Celtic Dreams had toured and he was very excited about coming to Worcester.
He said: “I know Worcester very, very well.
“I’ve been with some of my other shows and always have a lot of fun in Worcester at the Swan and Huntingdon Hall.
“The whole cast is really looking forward to coming to Worcester.”
The Celtic Dream show is the perfect blend of traditional Irish music alongside modern songs. Audiences will enjoy time honoured tunes such as Danny Boy and Carrickfergus to the haunting modern day classics of Sarah McLachlan's In the Arms of the Angels.
All these heart-warming performances feature astoundingly choreographed dance routines and a more than a touch of the old Irish ‘Craic’.
Mr Tobit said: “England has it’s Jerusalem, Scotland has its Flower of Scotland and now thanks to the song writing skills of John Ward, Northern Ireland has it’s anthemic ‘Home’, the lyrics of which sum of the hope and positive future for Ireland.”
Celtic Dream will be at The Swan Theatre, Worcester, on Friday, March 2 from 8pm.
Tickets cost £22.50, concessions £20, and are available by calling the box office on 01905 611427 or online at theswantheatre.co.uk.
