(Mahwah) – The Saint Patrick’s Day celebration will begin early when The Magic of Ireland takes to the stage in the Sharp Theater at Ramapo College of New Jersey Sunday, March 9 at 2 and 7 p.m.
Long before Riverdance, there was Irish dance, music and song, often taking place spontaneously in kitchens, taverns and family gatherings. In small villages across the land, the percussion of the dance steps fueled the exciting pulse of the music and its ancient compelling rhythms. These traditional arts endure today in much the same way.
Evoking a time and place steeped in legend, lore and enchantment, The Magic of Ireland offers an authentic Irish cultural performance featuring award-winning artists. Experience an evening of traditional Irish dance, music and song enhanced by stunning costumes, lighting and sound.
Tickets cost $30, $26 and $22 for adults and $15 for children under 17. Senior citizens will receive a five percent discount off regular ticket prices.
The Sharp Theater is located at the Angelica and Russ Berrie Center for Performing and Visual Arts on the Ramapo College campus. For more information call 201.684.7844.
This program is made possible in part by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.
