Transition Year Drama: All-Ireland Finalists
13th February 2017
It was clear from the audience numbers and general response to the Transition Year production, John B. Keane's Big Maggie, that our young group of actors had impressed parents and members of the local community alike. However, recognition has now been received at a national level as Cork's, Briery Gap Theatre has nominated the play as a finalist in its One Act competition.
Due to the positive response to the production in the Mullingar Arts Centre last November, an Act from the pay was entered in the Briery Gap competition early in January. Recently, the school then received confirmation that the judges had awarded the students a place in the final which will take place in the Mullingar Arts Centre on March the 4th with the group set to take to the stage at approximately 19.30 The news was greeted with great delight and rehearsals have started up once more as the group prepares to impress the judges and public yet again. Well done to all involved!
