Arís Theatre Gives Atlanta Celtic Performance An Encore

Audio version of this story here.

For three decades, Theatre Gael brought the Celtic arts to Atlanta, up until closing five years ago. But those who have missed the music and theater of Ireland and Scotland now have a venture to look to. 

Arís Theatre (pronounced “ah-REESH)  launched in June of 2013 and is dedicated to bringing the traditions and artistry of Celtic culture to the stage. Two of the founders of Aris, Kathleen McManus and Robert Shaw-Smith, spoke to WABE’s Lois Reitzes.

Shaw-Smith began by explaining the company’s name.

Aris Theatre’s “Four Play Festival,” takes place March 21-22.  Click here for information.
