Charles Dickens’ A CHRISTMAS CAROL @ Whale Theatre
Dec 7 @ 7:30 pm
Charles Dickens’ A CHRISTMAS CAROL @ Whale Theatre

Greystones Players are delighted to present Charles Dickens’ classic tale A Christmas Carol in this exciting new adaptation by Aideen Walton.

It is Christmas Eve in nineteenth-century Dublin city, but for the driven money lender Ebenezer Scrooge, business is paramount. For Scrooge, Christmas is just another day to add to his fortune, and he has no patience with those who want to celebrate the season. As the evening draws to a close, Scrooge is visited by the ghostly presence of his dead business partner Jacob Marley, who presents him with an ominous warning and heralds visits from three more spirits.

With Christmas spirit, music and magic at its heart, Dickens’ story is brought to life in this vivid stage re-imagining of the well-known tale.

Greystones Players’ previous productions – including Dancing at Lughnasa by Brian Friel, The Playboy of the Western World by J.M. Synge, Juno and the Paycock by Seán O’Casey and Harvey by Mary Chase – all sold out, so book your tickets now to avoid disappointment!

Open Trad Night – Danns Bar @ Danns Bar
Dec 10 @ 9:15 pm – 11:00 pm
Open Trad Night - Danns Bar @ Danns Bar

For the past 15 years every Tuesday evening, Danns bar has been the location for great session music.  As the night progresses, different musicians arrive, and the music suddenly takes a left turn, down through the Ring of Kerry, before detouring back up through the Burren before a quick trip over to Nashville.

“We’re open to everyone and anything,” says Hughie Browne, the man with the whip, and the keeper of the flame for all these years. “It’s what makes it interesting not only for those listening but, perhaps more importantly, for us. We’re not here to play the same old songs week after week. We’re out to find something new each week…”

And with so many singers, pipers, banjo players, guitarists, turning up each week, it’s easy to see how a song might never remain the same.

Dec 11 @ 10:30 am – 12:30 pm
The Visual Story of Ireland (1640-1940) COURSE 2 @ Whale Theatre

The Visual Story of Ireland (1640-1940) (1 & 2)

Tracing the inspirations and techniques that created some of our most revered and celebrated works of art is at the core of a three-week Visual Story Of Ireland course being run by local art historian Rosemarie Devereux in November.

Exploring our national history through our national art, Rosemarie is offering two separate Wednesday morning courses – for beginners, it’s November 6th to the 20th; for a more detailed history, it’s November 27th to December 11th.

The aim of both courses is to thematically explore a selection of the paintings that are held in the national collection of art in order to re-engage, through their visual representations, with Ireland’s most significant political and cultural events; to learn more about the people who governed this contentious land as well as those whose livelihoods were dependent on it; finally to examine the context and conditions under which the producers of these paintings worked i.e Irish artists.

Themes that will be discussed in Course 1 are: Politics – its effect on Irish Art; The Development of Irish Painting; Cultural and Social images of 19th Ireland; Land Issues – environmental, political and philosophical; Irish Women Artists; Great Patrons of Irish Art in the NGI.

Themes that will be discussed in Course 2 are: Irish Artists Abroad; Foreign Artists painting Irish Subjects; Significant Irish Paintings in the National Collection; ‘How the Other Half Lived’ – pictorial representations of the landed class; Modernism in Ireland; The Yeats family and Art.

Each class runs from 10.30am to 12.30pm, and you can jump on board for the full three weeks for just €55, or hop on board for a single class, at €20.

The Six Marys @ Whale Theatre
Dec 11 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm
The Six Marys @ Whale Theatre

Back by popular demand, the wonderful The Six Marys returns to the Whale Theatre after 6 sell out shows.

This one-woman-show presented by Jean Farrell and directed by Joe McCarrick is a comical yet poignant look at life, from childhood in the 1950s to the present day.

It draws very much on the influence of religion as taught by the nuns – preparing young Irish Catholic schoolgirls to imitate the virtues of the Virgin Mary. The Six Marys are fun-loving girlfriends, who grow into practical, everyday housewives. The light-hearted atmosphere helps us concentrate on their journeys through the decades delivering all kinds of sharp and comical observations. Jean Farrell has plenty to say about the teenage pursuit of Mr Wonderful followed by the reality of married life, teenage children and growing waistlines.

With accompaniment from Catherine Gallagher singing some of the biggest hits of these foundation-shaking decades, The Six Marys is a fun-filled, poptastic trip memory lane. And one that you’re never quite likely to forget.

“It’s no joke that I’ve finally become a stand up comedian at 66 years of age. And I’m loving it… Mary Black said she Married a lovely sexy man who had turned into a sofa that grunts. Mary Grey remarked that her husband’s idea of foreplay is “eight pints” or “Are you awake?” Irish Times

Love Island Voiceover King: IAIN STIRLING – LIVE @ Whale Theatre

“Voiceover king Iain Stirling has become a cult star for his tongue-in-cheeks quips and commentar” – Joanna Crawley, Daily Mail

Following his success on Love Island, he took on the role of host for ITV2’s new physical comedy entertainment show, CelebAbility, adding to an extensive list of television credits, including Russell  Howard’s Stand Up Central and Drunk History (both Comedy Central) plus an array of panel shows, such as Virtually Famous (E4), Fake Reaction and Safe Word (both ITV2).

A driving force behind the concept of comedy panel show The Dog Ate My Homework (CBBC), Iain has co-written and hosted four series which saw him win 2017’s Children’s BAFTA Best Presenter Award (2017) and following three nominations scoop 2016’s BAFTA Scotland’s Best Programme Award. Celebrity guest panellists on the show include Romesh Ranganathan, Joel Dommett and Susan Calman.

Beginning to make a name for himself internationally, Iain performed at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and New Zealand Comedy Festival earlier this year.

Orson Welles’ Christmas Carol @ Whale Theatre
Dec 19 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Orson Welles' Christmas Carol @ Whale Theatre

Only things aren’t too Christmassy: it’s ten minutes to ON-AIR and legendary Scrooge Lionel Barrymore has fallen sick, and now Orson has to step into his shoes; plus the script still isn’t right, his cast are revolting after three days of rehearsing without sleep, and the pressure’s on after the success of “War of the Worlds”: the Nation awaits and Hollywood’s watching! Will this Christmas Carol have a happy ending?

Greystones Film Club: Elf @ Whale Theatre

Greystones Film Club: Elf @ Whale Theatre

Elf (USA/PG/97mins) Friday December 20th 4.30pm [doors 4pm] The Greystones Film Club have been running this timeless 2003 comedy for quite a few years now, and it never fails to delight. And Will Ferrell has rarely been better as unlikely elf Buddy, taking that long walk from the North Pole in order to find his birth father. Who, being James Caan, is firmly on the naughty list.

Managing to be both irreverent and reverent, for all its silliness and sublime slapstick, Elf is a sentimental film at heart, with the seering finale a firm reminder that Santa is real. Once you believe.

Dec 20 @ 7:30 pm
Greystones Film Club: Love Actually @ Whale Theatre

Love Actually (UK/USA/15A/135mins) Friday December 20th 8pm [Doors 7.30pm]
At the time, the critics were not impressed, finding Richard Curtis’ 2003 sugar-coated seasonal smogasbord of short, sentimental stories all a bit, well, too sweet. Verging on sickly. Over the years though, that icy reception has thawed considerably, with this guilty Yuletide pleasure now firmly established as something of a Christmas classic.

Of course, having a series of stories and characters to follow means that, should one get on your candle wick, hey, don’t fret – there’ll be another one along any second. And besides, this movie is worth seeing just for Bill Nighy’s washed-up rock star having an unlikely comeback with a Christmas hit. And, let’s be honest, Hugh Grant is the best prime minister Britain has had for decades.

Greystones Film Club: The Muppets Christmas Carol @ Whale Theatre
Dec 21 @ 1:00 pm
Greystones Film Club: The Muppets Christmas Carol @ Whale Theatre

The Muppet Christmas Carol (UK/USA/G/85mins) It might be verging on sacrilege to say, but, this 1992 outing might just be the finest adaptation of Charles Dickens’ 1843 novella ever to hit the big screen. It’s certainly the most fun, The Muppets bringing enough Marx-esque anarchy to breathe new life into this well-worn Christmas tale.

And the Henson gang somehow managed to inspire Michael Caine to one of his best performances too, as the grouchy old grinch that is Ebenezeer Scrooge. Caine takes the journey from unrepentant miser to loving, laughing philanthropist with a conviction that will get you right in the feels. As for Kermit’s turn as Bob Crachett, how that little green giant of acting didn’t get an Oscar nomination is beyond us.

Greystones Film Club: A Nightmare Before Christmas @ Whale Theatre
Dec 21 @ 4:00 pm
Greystones Film Club: A Nightmare Before Christmas @ Whale Theatre

The Nightmare Before Christmas (USA/PG/86mins) Saturday December 21st 4.30pm [Doors 4pm]
Has Tim Burton ever been better than with this 1993 stop-motion offering? Based on a mischievous poem the teenage goth wrote in response to the 1823 poem written by Clement Clarke Moore, like ElfBurton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas manages to poke fun at the traditions of Christmas whilst also, ultimately, embracing and celebrating them.

The story centres around Jack Skellington, the big pumpkin in Halloween Town who has just hit a mid-fright crisis. Surely there’s something more to life than scaring the bejiggers out of children? That’s what our anti-hero sets out to discover when he tries to bring all things Christmas – including a kidnapped Santa Claus – home to all his scary monster and super freak friends. With the clock ticking down on December 24th, will there be time for Christmas to be saved…?

Greystones Film Club: It’s a Wonderful Life @ Whale Theatre
Dec 21 @ 7:30 pm
Greystones Film Club: It's a Wonderful Life @ Whale Theatre

Even Frank Capra – who had a habit of making classics – would have been surprised at just how loved his 1946 Christmas still is, seven decades after it first conquered the world. Reminding us all that the only presents that truly matter at this time of year is being presentIt’s A Wonderful Life taps into the very notion of home, of belonging, and of recognising the value of happiness rather than the price.

It’s a message that’s helped in no small part by Capra’s masterful direction, a smart script, and an incredible cast – led, of course, by one of the big screen’s true all-time greatsJames Stewart. The perfect film to round-out these Christmas classics, if you’re not blubbing by the end of It’s A Wonderful Life, well, later on, you might just be visited by three spirits. You heartless swine.

Organiser Sherron St Clair has been working with authentic movement and dance for 10 years, qualifying as a 5Rhythms teacher in Oct 2014.

Over the years, Sherron has brought the 5Rhythms to the Earthsong camps, Body & Soul, and Electric Picnic, to Wexford, Cork, Clare and Paris, and her 2-monthly drop in classes in Greystones. This will be Sherron’s 3rd New Year’s Eve Alcohol-Free event.

It is here she is able to shape, feel, witness and validate ‘all that is me’, without judgment in this ‘space’. Says Sherron, “I can drop into the playground of my body, rearrange the furniture and delight in my new surroundings, with creative possibilities for the next wave…”

The 5Rhythms has been, finishes Sherron, the “biggest catalytic change in my life. It ROCKS!”

Mack Fleetwood – NYE 2019 @ The Hot Spot

Mack Fleetwood - NYE 2019 @ The Hot Spot

Ring in the New Year with Ireland’s premier tribute to the Super group Fleetwood Mac, bring you on a magical musical journey from the Peter Green blues era to the multi-platinum selling Anglo/American band that still tour today.

Originally the “Best White Blues Band” to come out of the 60s, Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac had several memorable hits and influenced scores of others great bands that were to follow them, and/or cover their songs, such as Led Zeppelin and Santana.

When Peter Green left the band, Mick Fleetwood & John McVie kept the show on the road, being joined first by Christine Perfect (later McVie) and then Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks. These three talented and prolific songwriters brought a distinctive style and unique fusion of rock, pop and country to the band. The turmoil of the bands private lives was played out in their music. Nicks & Buckingham soon gained iconic status in fronting the new line-up. Fleetwood Mac enjoyed a rebirth, producing many classic hits including the outstanding Rumours album. They went on to even greater worldwide success than the original line-up.

6 piece band, MACK FLEETWOOD deliver a spellbinding show. Their love of the material and musical prowess shines through in each song. They will bewitch you with authentic renditions all your favourite Fleetwood Mac hits.  *NOTE:  NYE 2019 – First 19 tickets are €19       

There is limited seating at this event.  If you need seating due to physical constraints it must be arranged in advance, and will be subject to availability & early arrival.

Open Trad Night – Danns Bar @ Danns Bar
Dec 31 @ 9:15 pm – 11:00 pm
Open Trad Night - Danns Bar @ Danns Bar

For the past 15 years every Tuesday evening, Danns bar has been the location for great session music.  As the night progresses, different musicians arrive, and the music suddenly takes a left turn, down through the Ring of Kerry, before detouring back up through the Burren before a quick trip over to Nashville.

“We’re open to everyone and anything,” says Hughie Browne, the man with the whip, and the keeper of the flame for all these years. “It’s what makes it interesting not only for those listening but, perhaps more importantly, for us. We’re not here to play the same old songs week after week. We’re out to find something new each week…”

And with so many singers, pipers, banjo players, guitarists, turning up each week, it’s easy to see how a song might never remain the same.
