PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

The Muppet Christmas Carol stars Kermit, Miss Piggy, and the rest of the Muppet gang, along with Academy Award Winner Michael Caine as Ebeneezer Scrooge. Directed by Brian Henson (Muppet creator Jim Henson's son in his feature directorial debut) and adapted from the 1843 novella A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, the film closely follows Dickens's original beloved tale. 

 

The Muppet Christmas Carol is the fourth theatrical film in The Muppets franchise, and the first to be produced following the deaths of the Jim Henson and the performer Richard Hunt (Scooter); the film is dedicated to both. Released on December 11, 1992, it's the first Muppets film to be produced by Walt Disney Pictures.

 

The movie will be preceded by an organ concert of holiday favorites played on our "Biggest Little Wurlitzer" one half hour before the movie begins. The classic Max Fleischer cartoon short Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer will be shown before the film. There will be free popcorn, and a visit from Santa. Don't be a Scrooge - come get in the holiday spirit!

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION


From the bombastic and epic, to the folky and mystical, Get The Led Out (GTLO) has captured the essence of the recorded music of Led Zeppelin and brought it to the concert stage. The Philadelphia-based group consists of six veteran musicians, intent on delivering Led Zeppelin live, like you’ve never heard before! Utilizing the multi-instrumentalists at their disposal, GTLO re-creates songs, in all their depth and glory, with the studio overdubs that Zeppelin themselves never performed. When you hear three guitars on the album…GTLO delivers three guitarists on stage. No wigs or fake English accents, GTLO brings what the audience wants…a high energy Zeppelin concert with honest, heart-thumping intensity.

Gaelic Storm & The High Kings - The Mighty Tour 2023 


What is Gaelic Storm?  They’re a chart topping Celtic band with 7 Billboard World Music number ones. They work hard and they play hard, being on tour 200+ days a year for 20+ years. They’re the band you saw in Titanic, and most importantly, they’re more fun than a barrel of drunken monkeys!


The band (Ryan Lacey, Patrick Murphy, Katie Grennan, Steve Twigger, and Pete Purvis) attributes their continued success to their fanatic audience, and it’s a well-diversified crowd for sure. The country-music folks adore the storytelling, the bluegrass-heads love the instrumentals, Celtic fans love their devotion to tradition, and the rockers simply relish the passion they play their instruments with.


Gaelic Storm takes a true blue-collar, hard-nose approach to touring, consistently traveling the US and internationally over 200 days a year, forging a unique path in the Celtic music world. “You have to see us live. We are the true working-mans’ band,” says Lacey, who joined the line-up in 2003. “We still, and most likely always will, tour most of the year, and that’s how we constantly hone our craft.”


The dedication to live shows date all the way back to the mid-1990s, when Gaelic Storm kicked off its career as a pub band in Santa Monica, California. Due to their discovery at the pub, by the end of the decade, the musicians had appeared in the blockbuster film Titanic (where they performed “Irish Party in Third Class”). This laid the groundwork for a career that would eventually find them topping the Billboard World Chart six times, making appearances at mainstream music festivals, and regularly headlining the largest Irish Festivals across the country, all the while gaining a reputation as a genre-bending Irish rock band, whose songs mix Celtic traditions with something uniquely creative.


After 15 years at the top of their game, The High Kings (Finbarr Clancy, Darren Holden, Paul O' Brien, and Brian Dunphy) are still selling out venues around the world to an ever-growing army of loyal fans. With a million listeners on Spotify and 2 platinum to their credit, The High Kings are celebrating 15 years together by joining Gaelic Storm for The Mighty Tour!


Widely regarded as the standard-bearer for their genre The High Kings continue to surprise and delight! Notable performances include Glastonbury, the Isle of Wight, and NYC’s Times Square. They proudly headlined the 2015 St Patrick’s Day concert in Trafalgar Square, London The High Kings have performed for hundreds of thousands of fans, including President George W Bush (2009), the Prime Minister of England (2011), and President Barack Obama (2012).


Keep the St. Patrick’s Day celebration going Mighty strong! Join us for Gaelic Storm and The High Kings!
