Eight brave couples, all amateurs, are rehearsing for this year’s Delco Gael’s Dancing Like a Star fundraiser on February 19.
The well-known character actor auditioned for the role of crotchety farmer Phil Hogan in O’Neill’s “A Moon for the Misbegotten” in March. He won it handily. Then, in June, he lost a leg in a hit-and-run accident. But Toner remained powerfully motivated to play that role. Starting next week, he will.
There was music, dancing, laughter, and a few tears as Executive Director Siobhan Lyons presided over her last Christmas party. She’s moving on.
We went to a few events, one featuring the Divine Providence Village Rainbow Irish Step Dancers, another featuring Runa at the Kimmel, and another a house concert featuring Rory Makem, and Mickey and Liam Spain. We thought you might like to share in the holiday magic.
Catch a one-woman play at the Irish Center on Saturday, enjoy some Christmas music with some topnotch Irish musicians, and celebrate the holidays with some of your favorite Irish people over delicious food.
