Dynamic Irish Dance Show Adds Matinee
With all the ingredients for a dazzling night out, it’s no surprise Irish music and dance sensation A Taste of Ireland has added another Redcliffe show to their national tour.

After selling out the evening performance, a matinee has now been added to the 28 April show date at Redcliffe Entertainment Centre, for those keen to see the feel-good theatre spectacular.

Lead dancer Ceili Moore said the sell-out show was testament to how much the Redcliffe crowds loved the show and were looking forward to seeing it return.  

“I’m personally very much looking forward to performing there,” said Ceili. “The audience loved it so much last time.”

This is the second national tour for A Taste of Ireland following a successful first run in 2019. This time around there are new sets, costumes, songs, and effects ready to impress when a cast of world-class Irish dancers, folk musicians, and contemporary vocalists take to the stage, performing 90 shows across the country.

Ceili said the name A Taste of Ireland gave a good snapshot of what audiences could expect from the show.

“It explores the history and culture that Ireland has to offer through Irish music and dance. It’s

also a lot of fun, with everyone having a laugh and lots of Irish craic,” Ceili said.

“We have some of the world’s best performers from Riverdance and Lord of the Dance who are currently out here at the moment. Some of them did their last performance last year in Radio City Music Hall and the West End before they got shut down. We managed to get everyone out here and ready to go for the show.

“We have a mixture of international and Australian performers including the very best Australian Irish dancers, world champion dancers, as well as some home-grown stars.”

“We feel very lucky to have the best to offer on stage here.”

And with overseas travel still difficult, this show couldn’t have come at a better time.

“One of the things we’ve been saying is you can’t go to Ireland, so we will bring Ireland to you,’ Ceili said.
