October 26, 2022

Finnegan’s Farewell

Title of Show: Finnegan’s Farewell

Synopsis:

In the spirit of Riverdance and Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding, Finnegan’s Farewell features the best of Irish Dancing, music, and singing!  Come to an authentic Irish wake and pay your last respects to the dearly departed and beloved U.S. Postal worker, Patrick James Finnegan.  Paddy took a day trip to an Atlantic City casino where he won a whopping 2.2 million dollars at the slots.  Unfortunately, Poor Paddy fell off a ladder while painting the house.  As Father Seamus presides over the funeral service, we are treated to eulogies, sing-alongs, and a missing corpse!!

Director: Marty and Wendy Golob
