Riverdance Thunders into the Palace

Riverdance, the thunderous celebration of Irish music, song and dance that has tapped its way onto the world stage, returns to the Palace Theater in Waterbury for one night only on Wednesday, March 2, at 7:30.

Composed by Bill Whelan and directed by John McColgan, Riverdance first premiered at the Point Theatre, in Dublin, in February 1995, where it opened to unanimous critical acclaim. Now in its 16th year, Riverdance has played more than 10,000 performances in more than 350 venues throughout 40 countries across four continents. The tour has traveled 600,000 plus miles, played to a worldwide television audience of 2 billion; sold more than 3 million copies of the Grammy Award-winning CD and more than 10 million videos.

An innovative and exciting blend of dance, music and song, Riverdance draws on Irish traditions and the combined talents of the performers to propel Irish dancing and music to present day, capturing the imagination of audiences across all ages and cultures. This extraordinarily unique show features an international company performing in unison to the magic of Bill Whelan’s music.

Before the performance, a 5:30pm pre-show dinner will be held in the Palace’s Poli Club, located on the Mezzanine Level of the theater. Dinner is $40 per member and $50 for non-members, which includes tax, service fee, coffee and tea. A cash bar is also available. Seating is limited and reservations may be made when purchasing tickets through the Box Office.

Tickets can be purchased by phone at 203-346-2000, online at www.palacetheaterct.org, or in person at the Palace Theater Box Office, 100 East Main St., Waterbury.
