2014 Drama

Following the smash hit TY musical "Evita", the school has six more plays in production!

The three Junior Drama Clubs are hard at work on their entries for the Cork Youth Dramafest, and the TY Drama classes are soon to begin work on theirs.

This year's Senior Drama Club are attempting their most ambitious production yet: a full-length play titled "Mister Burns", set in 2025, after Ireland has been devastated by nuclear disaster. The only thing that the few survivors share in common is memories of old episodes of the Simpsons ... and unsurprisingly, it's the nuclear power plant owner, who is at the centre of the stories they tell.

The play will be directed by Mr Burke and Caitlin Kelly (5th Year), with assistance from ex-students Safan McGrath (musical director) and Garvan Peck (fight scene choreography).

Can Colaiste Choilm win the Cork Youth Dramafest Senior Section for a sixth consecutive year? Time will tell, but what's certain is that a lot of fun and hard work will be put into trying to win it again ...
