This holiday season, The Village Theater at Cherry Hill encourages everyone to spend Christmas with the Celts on Wednesday, December 8, when this national touring company will take the stage at 7 p.m. to present a special holiday celebration featuring world-class musicians and the always crowd-pleasing Irish step dancers. This festive concert will also feature a special performance by the East Middle School Show Choir.
The original national PBS show, Christmas with The Celts, aired on over 200 PBS stations across the U.S., Canada, and on the BBC in Ireland over the past several years. This successful TV show was the initial spark, which created a huge demand for the production to head out on the road every year, taking them on a national tour to perform live at Theaters and Performing Arts Centers.
"Christmas with The Celts is a spectacular live music event with top Irish musicians on vocals, accompanied by Irish fiddle and flute, guitar, bass, drums, and the hugely-popular Irish dancers,” said Ben Frick, Canton Performing Arts Coordinator. “This one-of-a-kind performance is sure to delight audiences of all ages with a truly unique opportunity to celebrate this special time of year,” he added.
This production celebrates the magic of Christmas like never before with classic songs such as: Little Drummer Boy, Count Your Blessings, Write Christmas, I’ll be Home For Christmas, Santa Claus is Coming To Town, and John Lennon’s Happy Christmas. These high-stepping spirited musical selections will have audiences clapping along. The show presents a perfect combination of modern Christmas hits, lively ancient Irish Carols, hilarious spontaneous humor, thrilling Irish dancing, a children’s choir, and lush string arrangements giving audiences a most memorable interactive Christmas experience.
