An entertaining January 2016 lies ahead at Roscommon Arts Centre as the new season of events kicks off. The latest programme is filled to the brim with exciting theatre, music, and comedy.
Singer Jack L makes a welcome return on Friday January 8 with his new show Phantasmagoria. He will be performing songs from his recent hit shows The 27 Club and The Great Wall of China tour alongside new material from his upcoming album. Having won awards for his outstanding vocal performances Jack L will leave the audience surprised, excited, challenged, and most of all entertained with this tour-de-force performance.
Des Bishop is ready to have audiences in stitches with his show Grey Matters on January 16, tackling the issues confronting Des these days including returning to live in New York, being surrounded by other people’s kids, gender and marriage equality, the dangers of snapchat, dating a Chinese woman, and the prospect of reaching 40!
The classic John Steinbeck novel Of Mice And Men is brought to the stage by Mullingar Rail Theatre on January 21 and 22 at 8pm. Best friends George and Lennie are in search of the American Dream – their plan is to stay in Salinas Valley until they have earned enough money to buy their own ranch… but a turn in events mean that only a tragic outcome is possible for these two dreamers.
Frankie Gavin and De Dannan round off the month in style on January 30. Renowned for their furious performance of jigs and reels., their choice of material, arrangements, and style of playing is influenced by gypsy jazz, pop, classical, and sentimental Irish-American ballads, all of which makes them stand out from the crowd. Expect a rousing night of music!
