Next year is set to be a good year for the Wexford Drama Group, particularly for member Carol Long, who was recently elected as Chairperson for the second year running.

Carol will now lead the group into what will be their fiftieth year, a task she said she is 'delighted' to have been granted. Several other members were re-elected at the AGM in Fusion cafe, including Stephen Byrne as Treasurer and Nicola Roche as Secretary. Lucinda Kelly is now set to act as Vice-Chairperson while Paul Walsh, Thomas O'Leary, Jamie Ruttledge and Emma O'Leary were also elected on the night.

The new committee already have their work cut out for them with a busy few months ahead. Rehearsals are well underway for the group's Opera Festival production when they will perform the hilarious comedy adaptation of the Alfred Hitchcock classic 'The 39 Steps' at Wexford Arts Centre. The group will also be auditioning in November for 'Big Maggie' which will be directed by Alan Corcoran and performed in 2016.
