CASH RETURNS

‘Hello, I’m not Johnny Cash’ – ‘Cash Returns’- has been hailed the greatest and most exciting Johnny Cash & June Carter Tribute in the UK and Ireland by fans, promoters and venue owners alike with them picking up ‘Best Tribute Band’ at last year’s ‘Hot Country TV Awards.’

The show comprises of the award winning JP Mac as Johnny Cash, who's baritone voice, tone and onstage mannerisms are scarily uncanny to the Man in Black's himself.

JP is then joined on stage by his sister Caroline, who takes on the role as June Carter, with her larger than life onstage presence matched by an even bigger voice.

The dynamic combination of the two and their fantastic fully live 4-piece band add to give that authentic Cash feel and sound which continues to wow audiences all over.

An official accolade of support was even made from Johnny Cash's very own Drummer of near 40 years W.S (Fluke) Holland, who regarded JP's recorded tracks as 'quite amazing' on his Tennessee based radio show, and has even been asked to perform with him out in the states next year.

If you go along you can expect to hear all the classics from, 'Folsom Prison Blues' to 'Ring of Fire, 'Walk the Line', right up to 'Hurt' and of course the smash duo hit ‘Jackson’ among many others.

If you're a real fan of the Man in Black, or you just want a great night out, you cannot afford to miss this spectacular show!

ROMEO & JULIET



“…Runacre-Temple taps into a zeitgeist so many other ballet companies desperately want to access right now, making relevant what is often seen as an elitist art form while still honouring its roots.” “Runacre-Temple gets it”
THE IRISH TIMES


Based on Shakespeare's tale of the star-crossed lovers, Romeo & Juliet is one of the greatest love stories of all time. Against a backdrop of ancient feuds and gang warfare, the ill-fated young couple falls hopelessly in love, but their families are bitter enemies. In order to be together the two lovers must be prepared to risk everything.

In Ballet Ireland's production, Shakespeare's tragic tale is transported from the streets of medieval Verona into the classrooms of a modern-day high school. It becomes a play within a play.

The Chaplain at a school divided by gangs and violence brings a fight to a close. He together with their form teacher attempts to show the futility of such behaviour by introducing the pupils to the play of Romeo & Juliet, with the feuding Montague and Capulet families. Each is assigned a character and the action ensues.

Romeo & Juliet promises to delight and will always appeal to a wide-ranging audience regardless of age or background.

CHRISTMAS GOTHIC

‘A classy one-woman show...undeniably atmospheric, and the images that Vaughan evokes in the theatre linger for a while after you’ve left her dark parlour, haunting you still.’ (The Stage)

Christmas: a time to remember the past, celebrate the present, and look to the future; a time of feasts and festivities; of holly and mistletoe; a time of visits and visitations; a time of … ghosts?

Come in from the cold and enter into the Christmas spirit as a dark and spectral woman tells haunting tales of the festive season, lighting a candle to the frailties of human nature and illuminating the cold and chilling depths of the deep, wintry dark…

Following the international touring success that was Female Gothic, Dyad Productions resurrects a Victorian tradition by presenting three seasonal tales of terror to scintillate the goose-flesh for dark Christmas nights.
