Get Up Your Irish: A Celebration in Music & Dance is created by Norah Rendell and Natalie O'Shea. Echoes of issues that immigrants face today are found in this sotry of the immigrant experience from 100 years ago. The music & dance of Ireland tell the story of Irish immigration to Minnesota. Get Up Your Irish is the story of a young boy's journey from Ireland to a new home in Saint Paul. Painted with the stereotype of the combative Irishman, this young hero finds the courage to face conflicts wiht his fists down, and to unite his community. Packed with toe-tapping dance numbers accompanied by fiddle, flute and guitar, this show will have you singing for days! Featuring members of the Two Tap Trio with youth performers from O'Shea Irish Dance and the Center for Irish Music.
