Little Shop of Horrors

Posted on : February 4, 2018

Friday 2nd February saw the final performance of the school musical Little Shop of Horrors. After some very intense weeks of rehearsal the TY and 5th year students finally got to tread boards of the Hawk’s Well Theatre on Tuesday 30th January. The show was a very polished and accomplished one, with every cast member giving it their all. The school musical happens once every two years with 5th and TY students taking part. The school sees the musical as a very important part of the broader education of our students. From the lead actors to the chorus members to the fantastic backstage crew, every talent is catered for. Even backstage, during the show, there is no teacher involved – it is all run by the students themselves. You can’t teach these skills, they must be learnt by experience, and that is what we give our students. Huge thanks go to the teachers who selflessly gave their time and talents to the enterprise, whether in the months leading up to the show  or  in the week of the show itself.  Special thanks go to music experts, Ms Breslin, Mr O’Donnell, Mr Mitchell and Mr Potter and choreographer, Ms Tansey.  The director of the show, Máire Hynes, would like to pay tribute to all the students who were so committed to this show. She has been directing the school production since 1989 and this is her last school show. “Time to step down and pass the torch on to the younger members of staff!” she says,  “Thanks to all the wonderful students I’ve worked with since 1989!”  Pictures from Little Shop of Horrors can be seen HERE
