Next year, 2015, Kilmuckridge will have the honour of hosting the All Ireland Amateur Drama Finals. This will take place from 10th to 18th of April. During this week we will see an influx of visitors from all over Ireland, some of whom will stay in the village all week! These people would like to be entertained, and, with this in mind, the festival committee have invited schools of the county to take part in a sort of Fringe event. This will involve presenting a piece of drama/play on an afternoon in the festival week. Colaiste an Atha is one of the invited schools.
To this end, there will be an open meeting during the first week back after the Christmas holidays, to see who would be interested in being part of this exciting event. Auditions will subsequently be held for actors, but crew may possibly also be needed. Please be aware, this WILL involve after school rehearsal and learning lines.
Hoping for a huge turnout !!! Happy Christmas to all.
