Kirkland Performance Center (KPC) is pleased to begin the new year with a night of stunning music and engaging dance as Celtic Nights takes center stage on Saturday, January 9th for two performances at 3:00pm and 8:00pm.
Hailing from the same creators that brought you Gaelforce Dance, comes Celtic Nights, a two hour showcase of rich Celtic culture, tradition, and heritage. Celtic Nights demonstrates an exceptional mix of Celtic music and dance, while simultaneously telling a classic tale that you cannot afford to miss. With strong direction, and production, by 25 year veteran Michael Durkan, this energetic and creative presentation is second to none. Portrayed as a musical journey, Durkan’s multi-talented cast performs a scene by scene story with brilliant dance, melodious sound, and dynamic acting that keeps audiences smiling from ear to ear.
Celtic Nights’ newest production, “Spirit of Freedom,” mixes highly talented cast of singers, dancers, musicians, and actors into an intimate production like no other. Digging deep into the roots of history, “Spirit of Freedom” captures the story of The Eastern Rising of 1916, Ireland’s triumphant call to liberty. Despite being the obvious underdogs to Great Britain, a few brave men and women took a stand that ultimately led to Ireland’s victory. Awestriking visuals, melodious sounds, and a perfect touch of humor deliver a tale of true love, passion, hope, and independence. Join us for an epic display of entertainment and conquest, which will be sure to have you yearning for more.
