Highland City Arts Council is very pleased and excited to announce our 2015 Theatre season! 

Dancing at Lughnasa. Dancing is set in Ireland’s County Donegal in August 1936, around the festival of Lughnasa, the Celtic harvest festival, in the fictional town of Ballybeg. It is a Memory play told from the point of view of the adult Michael Evans, the narrator. He recounts the summer in his aunts’ cottage when he was seven years old. The play depicts the late summer days when love briefly seems possible for three of the Mundy sisters (Chris, Rose, and Kate) and the family welcomes home the frail elder brother, who has returned from a life as a missionary in Africa. However, as the summer ends, the family foresees the sadness and economic privations under which they will suffer as all hopes fade. The play takes place in early August, around the festival of Lughnasadh, the Celtic harvest festival. 
Season tickets will include all 4 shows (Merchant of Venice is free admission) and will cost only $23.50 for adults, and $21.50 for children, students, and seniors.  E-mail highlandcityarts@gmail.com to reserve your season tickets!  Only a limited number are available so act quick!
