The SaPaDaPaSo parade is a beloved Cedar Rapids tradition - but what about the Night Before? What about NiBeSaPaDaPaSo?
Join us to kick off the American-Irish festivities a day early, where we'll be reading monologues from Echoes of Ireland, interspersed with live Irish violin tunes performed by Marita May O'Connell. The cast includes Courtney Ball, Nadine Borngraeber, Tim Boyle, and Zoe Murphy, directed by Cavan Hallman.
Echoes of Ireland follows the saga of an Irish family from County Cork in 1860 to present day New York City. Beginning five years after the end of the potato famine, Echoes sees the Cunygham clan on their journey across the ocean to the ports of Manhattan to the assimilation and rebirth of their family as American citizens who never forget from whence they came. The journey is part tragedy, part comedy, part history lesson and all undeniably human.
Marita May O'Connell has been the lead fiddler in Busch Gardens Williamsburg’s show Celtic Fyre, played fiddle in the first US tour of Rockin’ Road to Dublin, and locally has played violin alongside 2 Cellos, Foreigner and Disturbed.
Tickets are $20.
