COPPER FACE JACKS: THE MUSICAL
From the creator of Ross O’Carroll Kelly, Paul Howard, comes the comedy event of the summer. Copper Face Jacks: The Musical is a brand new Irish musical, packed full of craic, laughs, culchies, Dubs and lots of shifting!
New York had Studio 54 and Manchester had The Hacienda but ALL of Ireland has Copper Face Jacks and now this Club of Clubs is getting its very own all-singing, all-dancing musical. The side splitting event not to be missed this summer.
Running at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre, Copper Face Jacks: The Musical is a celebration of a club that started out life as something of a Culchie Embassy in Dublin but has since been embraced by its home city, as regardless of your county colours you’ll always find a welcome (and a slow-set) in the club that has become synonymous with having a good time for three generations of Irish nightclubbers.
Copper Face Jacks: The Musical is written by Ross O’Carroll Kelly creator Paul Howard and is a love story set on the eve of a Dublin Kerry All Ireland Final, when a sweet Kerry girl, who’s moved to the big smoke for her dream job in The VHI, ends up falling head over her flat-shoes with a true blue Dublin team member. Can love conquer all as these two young sweethearts face massive cultural and linguistic hurdles on their road to happiness/Croker? Only time, some great tunes and a bunch of cloakroom tickets will tell as Paul Howard uses his mighty comedy pen to see Copper Face Jacks: The Musical celebrate the nightclub that has become so much more than just a club and instead is home to millions of love stories and countless lost mobiles.
Copper Face Jacks: The Musical is produced by Kite Entertainment and Verdant Productions in association with the Olympia Theatre. Original Concept Created by Daren Smith with Paul Howard.
Copper Face Jacks: The Musical stars Johnny Ward (Fair City, Love/Hate) as Gino Wildes, Roseanna Purcell (RedRock) as Noeleen Ní Gearailt and Michele
McGrath (The Tudors, Damo and Ivor) as Gretchen Ackerman.
