Schools Shakespeare Drama Festival win!

Schools Shakespeare Drama Festival win!


Congratulations to Ms. Dowling and the cast of the transition year students who won the overall award for 'Best Production' at the inaugural Schools Shakespeare Festival which was held in the Mill Theatre, Dundrum on January 24th and 25th 2019. This was an outstanding achievement for the cast and their production of 'Jules on the Loose' really impressed the adjudicator, Geoff O'Keoffe. He commented on how well the cast worked together as an ensemble and how they performed a fluid, polished and insightful interpretation of Shakespeare's 'Romeo and Juliet'.

The modern scenes of the play were adapted from the script 'Shakespeare on the Loose' which was written by the brilliant Ms. Clodagh Havel in 2017 and which provide comic relief and a fresh, modern understanding of the themes and issues that lie at the heart of Shakespeare's text. This ties in with the aims of this new festival which is for students to experience Shakespeare in an innovative and truthful manner through live theatre performance. Each school in the competition had to perform a Shakespeare play in 30 minutes. There was very stiff competition from a chilling, broody performance of 'Macbeth' by a very talented group of students from Mount Anville secondary school. 'Macbeth' was awarded the runners up award.shakespeare photo 3.jpg

Anastacia Gluschenko was nominated for the 'best actor' category for her role as the modern day Juliet 'Jules'. The Mount Sackville play won 'Best ensemble' and 'best supporting actor' for Abbie Flannery for her role as 'Agnes' as well as the overall 'best production' and prize money of 500 euro. Well done to all involved in this success and especially to Ben and Micheal for set construction and Johanna Ní Bhléine for her role as technical manager .The cast will now go on to perform this play in 'The All Ireland Transition year drama festival' and the entire school community wish them every success and are very proud of their achievements to date.
