TY Drama - A Midsummer Night's Dream (with a twist)

Rehearsals are well under way for this year’s Transition Year production of a Mid Summer Nights’s Dream (with a twist) with over 50 students taking to the stage under the watchful eye of directors Ann Blake and Niamh Bowen.

A Mid Summer Night’s Dream is a tale of two worlds, of fairies and humans. In Ann Blake and Marie Boylan’s re-write of this classic Shakespearean play, the fairy world is viewed through the folklore of Ireland, where the Irish fairies trick and fool the royal Athenians in a fun and fast paced comedy of mistaken identity, marital discord, and pure tomfoolery.

Our Transition Year show this year, will be staged in the exquisite surroundings of Dance Limerick, a repurposed church set in the architectural beauty of Limerick’s Georgian Square - St. John's Square.

This play brings music and magic, comedy and crazy, to the stage, showcasing the best of transition year talent, accompanied by live music and stunning costumes and props, all bespoke for this show. 

Performance dates are Wednesday January 16th and Thursday January 17th 2019.
Show starts at 8pm.

Tickets are available from the school office 061- 451447. Adults 15 / Students 10.
