Oct 20 Annual School Musical – The Show will go on!

The Show will go on!

After last year’s success at the Bord Gáis Energy Awards with Miss Saigon winning best female lead AND Overall runner up best school musical in the country excitement was through the roof from the very first week back wondering what musical will be performed this year.  Over a hundred students turned up for auditions showing how popular and anticipated the Castleknock College school musical has become.  After much research and discussion throughout the year it was decided to perform a brand-new musical in the College, The Addams Family, a modern spin on a 20th century American story that is funny and up-to-date and will entertain everyone from 8 to 88.

Rehearsals have been underway since September for both the cast under the direction of Claire Tighe and the band under the guidance of Mr Fearghus Fallon.  The standards set by last year have pushed the cast to new levels already and the band, a mix of students, past students and teachers have been navigating to catchy new tunes at an even greater level than in past years.

As you can tell we are excited, not only because of the amazing standards and recognition last year but also how that has pushed us on this year to a brand-new level.  We really do hope everyone can come to see our show, seats are limited, and the show will sell out as it did last year.  If you would like to get to see it, your son can get tickets from Mr Hunt in the foyer at little break from next Monday 23 October or email paul.hunt@castleknockcollege.ie to reserve what you need.  Tickets will be €15 for adults, €10 for students and performances will be on Thursday 09, Friday 10 and Saturday 11 at 7:30pm and there will be a Saturday matinee at 2:30pm.
