Auditions for Clan na Gaels Spring Production of “Is Life Worth Living” by Lennox Robinson Saturday March 9th from 1:30 to 3:30 and Sunday March 10th from 1:30 to 3:30

Auditions for this comedy are Saturday March 9th from 1:30 to 3:30 and Sunday March 10th from 1:30 to 3:30 and and we’ll be casting parts for five females (20’s-60’s) and eight males (20’s -60’s) for the production.

The setting is a small, quiet, seaside country town in Ireland where summer brings tourists and entertainers. The arrival of a traveling theatre group, presenting the classics, turns the town upside down as they begin to emulate the lives of the characters in the plays.

Show dates are Thursday, April 25th Friday 26th, Saturday 27th at 8:00pm and Sunday at 2:30pm.

Auditions are open to all. No Experience Necessary. Clan na Gael is an open, welcoming and encouraging group for anyone interested in acting, and/or working backstage on the production. Come Play With Us! as we begin our 32nd season. For further information contact

GAC Irish Language Day & Variety Show

The “GAC Annual Irish Language Immersion Day” will be on October 6th, 2018. It is open to all levels from those with NO Irish to advanced. Irish Language Immersion Day Brochure   or  Pick up a brochure from the front desk.  Irish Language Immersion Day Registration Form.  Any questions please contact: Des Nolan at DesNolan@OptOnline.Net.

For the first time ever in the 70 year history of the club at GAC, an effort is underway to put on an a “Variety Show in Irish” (session style). 2018 is the Year of the Irish Language and we would like to show that the club actively participated in that. The show is being planned for October 6th, 2018, 2:30 to 4 PM. It will be open to the public ($5/person) and a booklet will be published ahead of time with each performance piece in English as well as Irish, so everyone can understand the show on the day.

Currently, we are looking for members of the various activity groups at GAC, (singing, acting, dancing and music), who would be interested in participating in this uniquely historical event. If you’re interested in participating, please talk to your activity leader who’s been contacted already or if you need to work on your own contact Des Nolan directly. Des will help with Irish performance piece selection, pronunciation and provision of simple phonetics as needed. Think a 5 min performance slot, (or multiple of that if needed), with a focus on a relaxed presentation/performance. Traditional pieces are fine, but we’re definitely seeking some contemporary interpretations on the traditional arts. Regardless, dare to be surprising and be entertaining! GAC Irish Language Day & Variety Show Flyer

If you think you might be interested in attending the show (no actual commitment needed) please send an email so we can get an idea of potential attendance.
