Write Out Loud Presents 9th Annual VOICES OF IRELAND
Write Out Loud - an organization founded in 2007 with a commitment to inspire, challenge and entertain by reading literature aloud for a live audience - presents VOICES OF IRELAND, their ninth annual celebration of the Emerald Isle, with classic and contemporary Irish tales and music. VOICES OF IRELAND is performed for one night only on Monday, March 18th at 7:30pm at Lamb's Players Theatre. Performers include Ron Choularton, Rachael VanWormer, Paul Maley, Walter Ritter & Veronica Murphy. Pre-show and intermission music will be provided by the Celtic Echoes.
Write Out Loud Artistic Director, Veronica Murphy shared, "VOICES OF IRELAND continues to be our most popular concert of the year. Storytelling is an integral part of Irish culture and the short story form grew out of that long storytelling tradition. In addition to the multi-voiced stories and poems we are presenting, The Celtic Echoes will join us for some beautiful and haunting music of ancient Ireland. We look forward each year to partnering with Lamb's Players Theatre for this opportunity to celebrate the Irish."
