Summer Show – Harmony presents Weenie! in The Mall Arts Centre.

Summer Show – Harmony presents Weenie! in The Mall Arts Centre.

Weenie! at the Mall Arts Centre, Youghal from Sunday 30th July to Wednesday 2nd August.
Tickets: adults €12 and children €10 are now available online at www.themallartscentre.com and
telephone bookings at 087 9593276.

After a highly successful pilot production, a brilliant new comedy will have its official premiere at the
Mall Arts Centre, Youghal, from Sunday 30th July to Wednesday 2nd August inclusive.  It is presented
by the multi – talented Harmony group and is their summer show for this year.  It would be a good
idea to book online at themallartscentre.com or at Cree’s Card Shop (024 93899). You can also pay at
the door.

As usual, with Harmony the emphasis will be on top quality entertainment at budget prices – Adult
€12.00. Children €10.00. It promises to be a fantastic night’s fun for all the family!

Weenie! Features gamblers, chancers, ‘bayturs’, lovers, teddy-boys and teeny-boppers, singers,
dancers – and a dead cat!

It is the story of the innocence and hidden strength of ordinary people at a head-spinning turning-
point for many – the sixties, when they first began to ask the question we’re still asking now: ‘What’s
happenin,’man’?

But most of all, it is a hilarious and heart-warming love-story.  Then, as now, all anyone ever wanted
was a happy ending.  In Weenie! – in an explosive, hand-clapping, toe-tapping finale – we get it!

Weenie!, with original song, verse and parodies, is written by local man Finbar Hannon. Finbar is an
accomplished stage and musical director. In this capacity, he has many shows to his credit, including
‘The Communication Cord’, Many Young Men of Twenty’, ‘The Lonesome West’, ‘The Shadow of a
Gunman’, ‘Dancing at Lughnasa’, ‘The Sound of Music’, ‘Oklahoma’, ‘Annie’, ‘South Pacific’, ‘Some
enchanted Evening’, ‘My Fair lady’, and ‘Guys and Dolls’.

Weenie! Is set in Cork

Where else?!

The  junior camp groups are suitable for children aged 7 to 9, and our senior camp groups are for children aged 10 to 13. Camps for each age group run concurrently so siblings in different age groups can attend at the same time in the same location.

Designer Minds camps are all about STEAM! Activities vary according to location as we rotate them each Summer, so that your child learns new things every year.

S is for Science. Children will participate in challenges, activities and design projects which will allow them to explore Biology, Physics and Chemistry in a fun and interactive manner.

T is for Technology. Children at all camps will produce a stop motion animation movie, as this is a firm favourite and a fantastic activity for easing into the week and making new friends. Depending on location children will also do technology topics such as augmented reality, coding, music technology, digital photo processing and more!

E is for Engineering. Kids will learn about the various types of engineers and complete engineering challenges using LEGO, knex, robots, electronics and more.

 The only tenor group with a truly global audience…whether playing a neighbourhood cathedral or major concert halls in international cities like New York, London or Shanghai, professional and most of all, good humoured performances are assured. They genuinely love what they do and you’ll see that shine through in each rendition of beautiful Celtic songs like the haunting Danny Boy and exhilarating classics like Nessum Dorma.

Matthew Gilsenan, James Nelson and Daryl Simpson offer more than beautiful voices and musical knowledge. Comfortable in all genres from classical and folk to Irish and pop, they bring their audience on a real musical voyage.  The Celtic Tenors continue to break new ground by stepping away from their classical roots, and adding a more contemporary edge. With this pioneering approach, they’ve welcomed a wider audience and fostered a fresh and invigorating style which has won them both critical acclaim and so many fans the world over.

From their No. 1 Chart Positions in Ireland & Germany, (and No. 2 in the UK , US and Australia) to their three platinum selling albums, their international reputation continues to grow. Across the Atlantic, they have achieved Top Ten spots in both US Billboard and Canadian Charts. Having given private performances to world leaders from Bill Clinton to Kofi Annan and many more in between, the Celtic Tenors are a real worldwide phenomenon. They’ve also shown a remarkable ability to capture the hearts of sports fans in international stadia from Dubai and Abu Dhabi to Dublin and Glasgow at opening ceremonies and interval shows.

A wonderful occasion, not to be missed.

Ivan Ilić in concert – 21 May 2017

Ivan Ilić in concert – 21 May 2017

Ivan Ilic in Concert at St Mary’s Collegiate Church, Youghal

Sunday 21st May 2017 at 8.00pm

Tickets €15.00 and €12.50 concession are ON SALE NOW!

Telephone bookings at 087 9593276. Online bookings as www.themallartscentre.com

Tickets will also be available at Cree’s Card Shop, North Main Street, Youghal after 13th May.  Booking is advisable.

It is the great privilege of Yew Wood Venues to welcome internationally acclaimed pianist Ivan Ilic to St. Mary’s Collegiate Church for this unique piano extravaganza.

Ivan Ilić is a Serbian-American pianist who has lived in France since 2001. He has visited Ireland regularly since his first festival appearance in Castletownshend, County Cork in 2004. This year he is embarking on a 2-week tour which will include ten events: concerts, masterclasses and a live broadcast on RTE Lyric FM on 24 May. Ivan has been popular with Irish audiences from the start, for his combination of fine artistry and relaxed stage manner. His spoken introductions make the concerts accessible and engaging for all audiences.

This year Ivan will present a programme including works by Beethoven, Haydn, and a Czech composer who knew both of them: Antoine Reicha. Beethoven and Reicha (RAY-ka) were friends and rivals, but while Beethoven’s piano music flourished, much of Reicha’s was left unpublished in France’s National Library. Ivan’s newest project is to allow audiences to rediscover Reicha’s exciting, innovative music, via concerts and recordings. His next CD, to be published in September by the prestigious British label Chandos, is also supported by Swiss National Radio and the Palazzetto Bru Zane in Venice.

Ivan is excited to play for audiences in Youghal, and explore Youghal’s harbour during his trip. “I’ve played throughout Ireland in the past few years, but I rarely have the opportunity to explore the coast, so I can’t wait to visit Youghal. West Cork is well known for live classical music, and there is no reason why East Cork shouldn’t enjoy the same. I’m especially looking forward to playing in St Mary’s Collegiate Church, a gorgeous venue.”

DAVE FLEMING – DOUBLE BASS.  Dave is a popular choice bass player, particularly among vocalists, for his sensitivity and extensive knowledge of the standards repertoire. His thirty years in the business has seen him playing with the leading Irish musicians and a wide range of international luminaries in the world of music.
