Following sell-out shows in the Northeast, Rockin’ Road to Dublin is coming to Scranton on their first national tour!

Come see the show that Irish Dancing Magazine calls “WORLD CLASS … a one-two punch of style and mastery … they made some magic here”.

Rockin’ Road to Dublin is the new sensation that combines the art of an Irish dance show, the power of a Rock-N-Roll concert, all with the finish of a Broadway theatrical production.

Starring World Champion Irish dancers Scott Doherty and Ashley Smith, the cast includes 14 dancers, 8 musicians and two vocalists.

Here’s what people are saying about Rockin’ Road to Dublin:

Unique, upbeat, and I love the combination of traditional Gaelic music with rock music and the dancing was extraordinary” –  Anne B., Green Bay

An incredible dance troupe, a phenomenal musical ensemble, killer staging and lighting. BRAVO!” –  Ellis K., Davenport
