Kickin' It Irish - Virtual Edition!

St. Patrick’s Day is such a great time to celebrate, but how does one do that when social distancing is contrary to the Irish way? Virtually, of course! This special virtual edition of Kickin' It Irish gives you the best seat in the house without leaving home. Watch online anytime. Proceeds go to offset losses and support the talented artists in this fabulous show of Irish dance, music, and song.
