The Clan na Gael Players had a humble beginning in 1987. Cardboard sets, lights in tin cans, folks dragged in from the bar to play a part! Ahh, but the audience enthusiasm towards this raggle-taggle group—that’s what made the Clan na Gael Players!
In addition to performing live theatre at the Gaelic-American Club, Clan na Gael has gone on the road to perform elsewhere – civic groups, fundraisers, pubs, schools and libraries. We have toured plays in Ireland twice, in Counties Kerry and Clare, in 2009 and 2016.
From the pens of such well-known playwrights as O’Casey, Gregory, and Keane have come several CnG productions. Equally, we point with pride to the premier productions where we have been privileged to work with playwrights in the creation of their work. Comedy, drama, music, song, dance, well-known and unknown, are all parts of Clan na Gael.
To all, thank you for supporting Clan na Gael! We look forward to continuing our stated purpose of presenting plays by or about the Irish. We hope you will continue to enjoy them as much as we enjoy presenting them to you. Break-a-Leg!
