More Info
ARE YA DANCIN’? The sell-out Irish musical will burst onto the 3Olympia stage from 27th to 31st August 2024, so get your dancing shoes on and let it Rock you Around the Clock!

Tickets priced from €21.50 including booking fee & €1.50 restoration levy on sale now from Ticketmaster Ireland.

For a limited run, the smash hit musical play ARE YA DANCIN’? – A Showband Story, written by Carol Gleeson & Helen Spring, makes its’ highly anticipated national debut at 3Olympia Theatre this summer from Tuesday 27th to Saturday 31st of August (including matinees). The show features a treasure trove of memorable hits to make you “shake, rattle and roll”.

Set in Donegal in the 1960’s golden era of music, the story follows Tommy O’Neill, who finds himself at the helm of an up-and-coming showband. As his star rises, he struggles both professionally and personally against the restrictive backdrop of the societal expectations of 1960’s Ireland. You will laugh with him and cry with him so get ready to join him on his journey and relive the music, the magic and the glory of the past through the knockout songs of the sixties and revel in a host of hilarious and memorable characters.

Featuring a LIVE seven-piece band and boasting an impressive thirty-plus cast, the music will bring back memories of your dancing days as well as the magic of the live dancehall bands. Musical numbers include hits such as “The Hucklebuck”, “Rock Around the Clock”, “If I Could Choose”, “I’m a Believer”, “Hit the Road Jack” and “From the Candystore”. This show will not only pull at your heart strings but also have you dancing in the aisles.
