Standing Ovation for The Addams Family Opener

Addams Family CCS

It's not too often that a cast gets a standing ovation on the first night of a show, but that's what happened after Wednesday night's opening of The Addams Family. The crowd rose to their feet in appreciation of a musical comedy performance that one onlooker suggested might need a bigger stage...like Broadway! We don't like to get ahead of ourselves as the Áras run still has two nights to go. Tickets are still available for Friday and we can say with certainty that these are going to be popular...They're available in Doherty Fintan's Newsagent - €10 adults, €8 students & children. The video of the show will be available just in time for the Christmas holidays...

Fashion Show Takes Centre Stage for Erasmus Project

Fashion Show 2019

The stage was set on Thursday, 16th May (thanks Shaun & Danny) for a fashion extravaganza, bringing together this year's Junk Kouture entries, and members of the Erasmus and French exchanges. Admission was restricted to lucky First Year pupils who not only got to enjoy a fashion parade, but also a brilliant half-time show courtesy of www.brunorummler.com. All the pupils who took part deserve a BIG high-five. It's not easy to take on the catwalk in front of your peers, and it's just as difficult to parade in front of people from another country. Well done to both the exchange and CCS pupils who put together a great show (with significant input from Ms. McDermott & Ms. McGee).

The curtains are closed, the tears have been shed and the Áras is shut...so you'll forgive us for not writing the Dancing at Lughnasa match report today. But thanks to Transition Year pupil, Éadaoin Doherty, we have a superb photographic review of a wonderful show. The video is on the way...
