Friday 13th March 8pm
Tickets€15/€12 (students)

Postponed until Further Notice

Widow's Paradise' by Sam Cree. Directed by Anne-Marie Cleary and presented byThe Carnegie Players. 

Widow's Paradise is a 3 Act comedy set in the 1960's. The action of the play takes place in a "luxury" caravan with 5 ladies embarking on a "strictly women only" holiday, set beautifully in the Kerry countryside

A subsequent case of "mistaken caravan identity" sees the "Widows Paradise" thrown into disarray with the arrival of no nonsense alpha-male Harry, his dim-witted side-kick Ernie and Harry's handsome young son Alan. What was supposed to be a scene of peace and tranquility turns into a riotous clash of the sexes, each with their own story to tell! 

Not to be missed!

The Mule

Director Clint Eastwood

Clint Eastwood stars as Earl Stone, a man who is ninety-years-old, broke, alone, and facing foreclosure of his business when he is offered a job that simply requires him to drive. Easy enough, but, unbeknownst to Earl, he's just signed on as a drug courier for a Mexican cartel. He does well, so well, in fact, that his cargo increases exponentially, and Earl is assigned a handler. But he isn't the only one keeping tabs on Earl. The mysterious new drug mule has also hit the radar of hard-charging D.E.A. Agent Colin Bates (Bradley Cooper). And even as his money problems become a thing of the past, Earl's past mistakes start to weigh heavily on him, and it's uncertain if he'll have time to right those wrongs before law enforcement, or the cartel's enforcers, catch up to him.

 

 

Music - A Salute to the Crooners performed by Dave Lawlor

Tickets:€20

A Salute to the Crooners

Postponed until Further Notice

This spectacular audio-visual Show A Salute to the Crooners sees Dave Lawlor, one of Ireland’s greatest singers pay tribute to the songs of Frank Sinatra, Andy Williams, Matt Monro, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole, Elvis Presley, Engelbert Humperdinck, Perry Como and Dean Martin. Not only do you witness the crooner classics come to life with Dave’s velvet voice but see the fabulous portrayal of images of all the artists on a large circular screen.

With a career spanning over thirty years, Dave Lawlor, star of the highly acclaimed ‘Reeling in the Showband Years’ Show was chosen by music promotions company Linden Productions to front this visually stunning show. Only an entertainer of Lawlor’s exceptional calibre could pay homage – accurately, respectfully, and with the appropriate humility – to so many musical icons in one show.  Acknowledged by his contemporaries as one of Ireland’s best singers, Dave has received many accolades to date, including 3 top ten hits in the Irish Charts. Dave’s vibrant stage presence will bring the audience through the great crooner songbook and some of the best know hits of the twentieth century such as Born Free, New York, New York, Portrait of my Love, The Wonder of You, Sway, Please Release Me, Moon River, That’s Amore, My Way and many more. With a penchant for sentiment, romance and charm, Dave will enthral in this visually stunning audio-visual show and take you on a nostalgic trip down memory lane, superbly enhanced by the rare images of the stars. As Red Hurley enthused about A Salute to the Crooners, ‘Lawlor stands in the shoes of Giants…….and they’re a perfect fit’.
