Loreto girls taking to the stage on Wednesday night
The Transition Year students at the Loreto School will take to the stage in the Dun Mhuire theatre on Wednesday night with their very own original musical.
Aoife Howell of TY Loreto said the students came up with the idea of staging their own musical at the start of the year.
'We thought it would be a bit of craic to put on our own musical. We did everything ourselves using modern songs and putting our own take on things.'
The musical 'Everyone Talks' has been developing since Christmas and for the last couple of weeks rehearsals have been stepping up as the date of the one night show approaches.
'We have a really large cast', said Aoife. 'There are between 60 to 70 girls on stage. A lot of them are in the chorus and the rest of the year is working back stage or at hair and makeup and also front of house.
'It was difficult to cast because there were so many talented students. The calibre was amazing to be honest. We have four amazing students who can sing, dance and act. The four main roles are Laura Smith, Rebecca Crane, Amy Quigley and Amy Whellar.' Aoife said that vice principal Sr Carmel and Ms Kinsella have been very supportive throughout.
Tickets for the musical which takes place in the Dun Mhuire on Wednesday, May 20, are on sale on the door and cost €5.
