Host group Milwaukee Irish Arts opens the festival on Tuesday night, May 24 at 8:00 p.m. with an encore performance of “The Plough and the Stars.” The festival schedule continues from Wednesday through Saturday with two shows per day at 2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. Adhering to Irish theatre festival tradition, all performances will be assessed by adjudicators, who share their evaluations with the cast and audience immediately following each show.
