PETER CORRY'S

MUSIC BOX

'The Music Box' stars Peter along with members of the Ulster Operatic Company. Peter has starred in many opera productions including 'Cosi Fan Tutte', as Guglielmo, 'The Marriage of Figaro' as Figaro and 'The Beggars Opera' as Captain MacHeath.

He spent three years in the formidable role of Inspector Javert, which he made his own in the West End production of 'Les Miserables'. His unique sound and repertoire of timeless classics have made him one of Ireland's most highly regarded performers. Celebrate the festive spirit and rediscover the magic and wonder of Christmas past and present with this spectacular evening of music, song and dance on Friday 28th December at 8pm.

COUNTRY MUSIC SHOWTIME WITH

THE STARS

This promises to be an action packed festive evening of Country Music featuring Fiddler Adam, one of Ireland's top fiddle players, Tony Kerr and Eugene O'Dornan, Anthony McBrien, newcomer Shauna McStravock and Mary Duff, 'Voice of An Angel', back by popular demand. Mary Duff was special guest on Daniel O'Donnell's first UK concert tour. Such was the success that today, 23 years later, Mary still remains Daniel's special guest. Country Harmony completes the all-star line-up along with compere Sean Wallace for a great night's entertainment for all Country fans on Saturday 29th December at 8pm.

ALADDIN

Lakeland Players' 26th annual pantomime brings in the New Year with bang or two. 'Aladdin' tells the story of the innocent young boy who has to stop evil Abanazer from getting his hands on the magic Genie's lamp. Can Wishee Washee, Widow Twankey and the gang help Aladdin in his quest? - "Oh Yes They Can!"

With plenty of laughs for young and old, this fabulous family show will brighten up the January gloom.

This will no doubt be another side splitting turn from this talented local bunch, running from Thursday 10th to Saturday 19th January. Check with the box office for availability as only a few seats remain for this very popular show.

SPRING 2013

The New Year brings a great variety of performances to look forward to, including the Fermanagh Live Festival event, 'The Winding Banks Of Erne' presented by Bryan Gallagher and Marion Maxwell which sold out last October.

The Viennese Strauss Gala, acclaimed flautist, Jonathan Johnston and his wife, celebrated concert pianist, Iryna, will be a must for classical music enthusiasts.

The much anticipated 'Calendar Girls' performed by Ennsikillen Amateur Dramatic Society is already booking up quickly.

We have more drama from Premier Theatrical Productions with 'Blood Brothers' and Bardic Theatre's 'Affluence'. The hilarious 'Give My Head Peace' will be back by popular demand.

Jake O'Kane, William Caulfield and Brendan Grace will be providing more laughs and added to the mix there is, of course, an abundance of great music whether you're into Country, Blues, Jazz or Trad., there is something for everyone.

Pick up a Spring programme or call the Box Office to be added to the mailing list.

Details of all upcoming performances can be found on our website - www.ardhowentheatre.com or join us on Facebook.
