For the first time in many years St. Macartans College decided to produce the annual
Musical using in-house talent for the production team and this has worked very well
as I witnessed when I attended the opening night of their presentation of Joseph
and His Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. This is a very pleasant show with good music
and good singing. The costumes are very authentic looking and the sets are a major
plus for this production. The sets with excellent lighting effects and clear sound
help to transport you into the land of Joseph and the cast certainly act out their
parts with good stage presence and delivery. Of course behind the scenes is an army
of helpers from parking assistants to ushers and backstage crew. All this was coordinated
by members of staff with producers - Sarah O’Hara, Catherine Mulhern and Nelius Flynn.
Mr. Mallon, Ms Smyth, Ms McAree, Ms Brady, Ms Duffy, Ms Gallagher, Ms Carroll, Mr.
Trainor, Ms McColgan, Ms O’Hagan, Mr McArdle, Mr O’Brien, Mr McCabe and Mr Reilly
were all credited in the programme for their involvement. Well done to all. It will
be on stage again Thursday, Nov 11 and Friday, Nov 12th starting at 8pm. Check the
school office ay 047-81642 for availability of tickets.
