Christine’s Sofa Sessions is a free online singing event that brings people together in their own homes to create joy, creativity and spark human connection. Each session is a half-hour long, during which time everyone - all together - sings the Fab Five – a selection of five songs for each session.

We will theme some of the sessions – 70s, 80s, Musical Theatre, Disney, Golden Oldies, Irish … you can send your requests and we’ll do our best … there’ll be something for everyone, we hope!

After a whirlwind weekend of auditions, meeting some amazing new talent and fabulous personalities, we have a winner! 
Huge congratulations to Richie Crowe who has been awarded the Red Alchemy Voice Scholarship 2019, and commiserations to the many talented performers who missed out this year.
Richie is 18 years old and comes from Bansha, Tipperary. He has been involved in music his whole life, appearing on stage with local youth groups, musical societies and local choirs. Richie hopes to continue his vocal and drama studies to pursue a career in musical theatre. 

And so we reach the end of the road - for now - with Vincent – A Play. 

What a fabulous journey we’ve had – a creative collaboration with amazing talent and the best of fun along the way.

It was especially exciting to play our final performance to a full house on the gorgeous Draíocht stage, with such a warm and appreciative Dublin audience – we loved every minute of it!  Vincent and his astonishing work will remain with us forever.

Sincere thanks to everyone who supported us in any way – we are hugely grateful.

VINCENT - A PLAY

Red Alchemy Theatre Company is presents a National Tour of Vincent – A Play: a beautiful piece about the life of Vincent Van Gogh.  This powerful, moving play was written and originally performed on Broadway by Leonard Nimoy (better known to audiences as Star Trek’s Mr. Spock), for which he garnered a Tony Award.

In this Irish première, against the visual backdrop of over one hundred of his greatest masterpieces, director Christine Scarry and actor Peter McCamley gloriously recreate the world of the misunderstood genius, giving the audience a moving insight into the turbulent life and times of the great painter.  Anyone who loves art, passion and life itself should see this play; it is a renewing experience and an insight into one of history’s most gifted, haunted masters.

After hugely successful performances in Kilkenny, Mullingar, Thurles, Wexford, Waterford, Portlaoise and Dublin, the critics have said:

‘A theatrical triumph!’

‘Peter McCamley was exceptional as Theo and Vincent Van Gogh’

 ‘Direction by Christine Scarry was inspired and inspirational’

‘Play was truly out of this world!’
