As festive fever begins to set in, Roscommon Arts Centre gets into the spirit by welcoming The Christmas Crooners to the stage on Friday, December 13.
Ideal for the whole family, indulge in this warm night of nostalgia and let us set the scene for the Christmas period to help you on your way. Christmas Crooners sees a fantastic cast of West-End singers, backed by the talented band The Jazz All-Stars, ready to inject you with a hearty dose of Christmas cheer as they perform over 30 of everyone’s best loved Christmas hits as well as original swing arrangements of all your favourites.
Returning for role of Frank Sinatra, Ray Eves has toured Europe as ‘Claude’ in SCALA theatre’s production of “Hair”, ‘El Gallo’ in “The Fantastics” and ‘Fred’ in “Kiss me Kate”. Duane Gooden also returns as Nat King Cole. This is the second time Duane will portray the role, having previously played Nat in “Secret Ribbons” with the Oxfordshire Theatre Company.
Prior to this he toured in the UK playing the role of ‘Andre’ in “Ain’t Misbehavin”. Duane’s television credits include; “Peak Practice”, “The Jonathan Ross Show”, “UK Food” for UKTV and “Crush” on Channel 4. New Zealander, Tim Benton makes up the trio as Bing Crosby.
