The Wake 2019

The Party to Die For!

Thanks to one and all who attended The Wake, Friday, February 15 at the Town Ballroom!

Beer, wine, food and shenanigans were in abundance as ICTC returned to the Town Ballroom for a rollicking Wake, Irish-style. What a night it was!

For a mere $50 ticket price, "mourners" of the late, lamented and totally fictitious Ben Better were encouraged to indulge in all the complimentary beer, wine and food they could handle. There was continuous entertainment. We danced the night away to the music of The Dady Brothers and our headliner, Crikwater, as they played a mix of rowdy pub songs and fiery fiddle tunes.

Ben's family and friends were on hand, too, to bid him a fond and final farewell, complete with bagpipes and Irish dancers.

Special thanks to Guinness, Labat, Sullivan's and the Town Ballroom for making The Wake a rousing success!

Proceeds from The Wake benefit the Irish Classical Theatre Company.

Check out this year's promo, produced by our friends at Full Circle Studios!
