“Because we only know that there’s going to be a show and the Glasgow Celtic will be there”
A brand new stage show, Celtic – The Musical has been created by Alterean Media with the official backing and support of Celtic Football Club.
Celtic – The Musical makes its debut Irish performance at The Gaiety Theatre, Dublin running from Tuesday 20th to Saturday 24th September, 2016. Tickets on sale now from Ticketmaster and The Gaiety Theatre Box Office.
Featuring the songs that have rung round Celtic Park over the years, the show tells the amazing story of this legendary club.
It takes audiences on an emotion-charged journey from the foundation of the football club by Brother Walfrid and its charitable origins through Willie Maley’s legendary successes as manager and the scoring feats of Jimmy McGrory. From the wing wizardry of Jimmy Johnstone to the triumphs of the immortal Jock Stein and the lasting legacy left by icons such as Billy McNeill, Tommy Burns and Henrik Larsson.
The show will premiere at Glasgow’s Pavilion Theatre where it will run from 7th-17th September.
Celtic Chief Executive Peter Lawwell commented: “Celtic is a Club like no other, with the richest history and tradition and a wonderful story which deserves to be told in this way”.
“The Musical will be a celebration of Celtic, one of the world’s true great football clubs and will take the audience on a fantastic journey through almost 130 years of history. We are sure this production will be extremely popular with all our supporters.”
Alterean Media previously enjoyed successes with the hit stage plays The Official History of Liverpool FC and One Night in Istanbul. Writer, Nicky Allt said: “Celtic’s story is one about people, about immigration, and about a football club born of purpose. Growing up in Liverpool my family were always aware of Brother Walfrid, Celtic and its charitable foundations. Since then it has always been a story that resonated with me, fascinated me, and a story I always wanted to tell.”
