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 and Portlaoise, audiences in Dublin finally have the opportunity to experience the glorious art and life of Van Gogh in Draíocht Arts Centre on Tuesday, 2nd April, 2019 – the last date of the current tour.  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!’

Following the great success of our MT Voice Scholarship last year, applications are now open for the 2018 Auditions for a full scholarship in MT voice/repertoire classes with Christine Scarry.

Red Alchemy Theatre Company in association with Acoustic House presents the first public screening of the live show from New York City, with creatives and cast in attendance.

After sell-out shows in New York and Boston last summer, the fabulous new musical Irish drama FIND YOUR WAY HOME is making its way to The Watergate Theatre, Kilkenny. 

RAGTIME THE MUSICAL

Based on the novel of the same name by E.L. Doctrow, Ahren’s and Flaherty’s Tony award-winning musical Ragtime is a compelling epic capturing the American experience at the turn of the 20th century.

The play's beautiful score and deeply moving lyrics have found new meaning elsewhere in our current moment.  Ragtime deals with discrimination and social inequality; sadly, this work of art could not be more relevant than today, as we struggle to instill the ideals of fairness and justice in our society and institutions. As the piece demonstrates, art has the capacity to teach us about ourselves, our communities, and to build community.

ALCHEMY - a newly created six-piece female vocal ensembe that captivates with its uniqe fusion of contemporary and classic sounds.
