Rehab gang show off their acting skills

PEOPLE who attend the Rehabcare Centre in Wexford showed off their acting skills in a play staged for family and friends.

Written by script editor Lucy Costigan and directed by Annette Walsh, the play is loosely based on the fairytale Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs.

The first act is set in a flat where Queenie, played by Elaine Dempsey, is preparing for the Miss Wexford Rose Beauty Contest.

Queenie hears she has a rival called Pearl, played by Mary Quirke, who is forced to seek refuge from the jealous Queenie in a house on the Main Street, owned by a group of council workers – John Thomas, John Joe O'connor, Christine Murphy, Matt Kelly and Stella Mccleane.

Stella Mccleane was a manicurist, Jenny O'reilly played a hairdresser and Mary Cronin a secretary. Lee Colfer was a beggar while Sean O'kennedy appeared on stage as a bouncer with Brendan O'farrell in the role of an agent and Eleanor Kehoe a doctor.

The back-stage crew in charge of props, costumes and make-up were Emer O'connor, Vince Stafford, Tara Duffin, Frances Murphy, T.J. Millar, Samantha Byrne and Derek Bradley.

The stage manager was Tina Hayes and the music was provided by Herbert Johnson.
