Bluegrass Ceili Academy brings “Something Irish” to the stage


Bluegrass Ceili Academy Something Irish When I left Lexington in 1995 to head to Washington, D.C., I left behind friends and my work in the local theatre community here. In D.C., I stopped acting and started dancing. On St. Patrick’s Day this year, I get to go back to my theatre roots and I couldn’t be more excited.

Bluegrass Ceili Academy will be joining Woodford Theatre this March 17 and we are inviting our community to celebrate the day with “Something Irish.” Explore Irish dance, music and language and meet the folks behind Translations, by Irish playwright Brian Friel, which opens March 24.
