The Irish American Heritage Center has hosted Irish Theatre since 1987. The theatre company began with the devoted efforts of Mary O’Reilly and Kay and Michael Shevlin. As the building renovation crews restored the facility, the thespians recruited fellow theatre lovers and began bringing Irish history, folklore, and much loved writings to the stage.
