Fancy a party and a play?

Seedbed, the latest show from Irish Classical Theatre, opens tonight (Friday March 10)!

You’ve got from March 10 through April 2 to catch it, with curtain times: Thursday-Saturday Evenings 7:30 pm, Saturday Matinee 3:00 pm, Sunday Matinee 2:00 pm.

But please, come see it with us on Thursday March 16!

That’s right – we’re throwing a little bash at ICTC’s Andrews Theatre on Main St before the show on Thursday. That night, you can get discounted tickets by calling into the box office and mentioning RISE when you check out. Your ticket will then be only $25. Details and updates can be found here.

Last week, we reveled in the intimacy of the theatre, where guests sit on all four sides of the stage. This week, we’d like to borrow some words about the theatre’s formation and founder, Vincent O’Neill, from The Buffalo News’ Colin Dabkowski:

In 1985, two talented brothers from Dublin put on a bare-bones production of “Waiting for Godot” in the basement of an airport hotel in Cheektowaga.

That memorable production, fueled by the passion of Vincent and Chris O’Neill, planted the seed for the formation of the esteemed Irish Classical Theatre Company five years later.

Today, as the company looks back on 25 years as one of Buffalo’s leading professional theaters, one man can claim the lion’s share of credit for that success. Since the Irish Classical’s early days as a roving company playing rented theaters and ad hoc spaces, Vincent O’Neill has guided the theater’s growth with a steady hand and an unwavering aspiration to quality that continues to pay dividends for Buffalo’s cultural community at large.

With key contributions from actor Josephine Hogan, founding board member James Warde and his late brother Chris, O’Neill transformed his small outfit into a fixture of the Theatre District.

We hope to see you Thursday night, or any other night during Seedbed’s run. This week and next week, tagging #RiseBFLO enters you to win two free tickets to go any night you’d like.
