    The long tradition of Kent County artists being invited to perform at Clifden Arts Week Festival in County Galway, Ireland continues! For this year's festival, planners have invited Sue Matthews to return with pianist Robert Redd and the fabulous trombone player John Harris to bring the Great American Songbook to Ireland. They will be traveling as the American Jazz Trio.As usual, the festival provides lodging and meals for the performing artists, but not transportation to and from Ireland, nor travel within Ireland. This concert will be a fundraising event to send them "over the pond."

  • August 23 – September 8, 2019
    Directed by Bonnie Hill

    Director Bonnie Hill brings the contemporary piece, Circle Mirror Transformation to the stage in August. Playwright Annie Baker weaves the tale of four lost New Englanders who enroll in a six-week-long community-center drama class. While they experiment with harmless games, hearts are quietly torn apart and tiny wars of epic proportions are waged and won. A beautifully crafted diorama, a petri dish in which we see (with hilarious detail and clarity) the antic sadness of a motley quintet. Fridays and Saturdays 8 p.m. Sundays 2 p.m.
