3rd annual IRISH DANCE CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR featuring TIR NA NOG IRISH DANCE

Both performances are fundraisers for the 2015 BRT Summer Solstice Festival
We hope you'll join us for what has become a tradition at BRT as we again will host a fun afternoon and evening of Irish dance, and live Celtic and Christmas music from members of Pendragon. All dances have been choreographed and taught by instructor Erika Damiani and will be performed by dancers from Tir Na Nog Irish Dance, based out of Blackstone River Theatre. As she did the past two years, Erika has chosen to make these shows a fundraiser for the 2015 Blackstone River Theatre Summer Solstice Festival where Tir Na Nog Irish Dance will perform. The shows will be filled with Christmas cheer, beautiful traditional and modern Irish dancing, live Celtic music, guest performers, and will conclude with a visit from our friend from the North Pole! The show will be sprinkled with the magic of Christmas and the love of Irish dance demonstrated by all of the dedicated dancers and their parents. Tir Na Nog Irish Dance is run under the direction of Erika Damiani and is based at Blackstone River Theatre. Tir Na Nog Irish dancers are very dedicated to learning Irish dance traditions and have a great deal of fun while doing it. Erika wants Tir Na Nog to grow so she can continue to spread her love of Irish dance to many students for years to come! If you are interested in Irish Dance classes at Blackstone River Theatre, call 401-725-9272 or visit http://tirnanogirishdanceri.com/RI_Irish_Dance.html

BLACKSTONE RIVER THEATRE CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION

Sponsored by Navigant Credit Union
Blackstone River Theatre will present our 7th annual Christmas Celebration featuring Aubrey Atwater, Erika Damiani, Elwood Donnelly, Bob Drouin, Kevin Doyle, Russell Gusetti, Josh Kane, The Miller Family, Mary Lee Partington, Torrin Ryan, and the Swamp Meadow Victorian Carolers. Audiences can expect the unexpected - familiar and unfamiliar songs, high energy clogging and step dancing, ancient carols, spoken word, jokes and more - as musicians and dancers perform in varied combinations or join together on beautiful Christmas and winter-themed pieces. "That's one of the nicest thing about this show," explains Russell Gusetti, BRT executive director. "We all get a chance to perform with each other in several different configurations, something audiences simply do not get to see at any other point in the year." Special guest performers will include the Swamp Meadow Victorian Carolers from Foster, BRT's Irish step dance instructor Erika Damiani, award winning 20-year-old Irish bagpiper Torrin Ryan, from Attleboro, and music and step dancing by the dynamic Miller Family - Ruby May, Evelyn and Samuel.
