St. Mary’s presents “Billie”

INSIDE us all, lies a star waiting to shine – sit back and enjoy the magical story of “Billie” from Thursday March 22 to Saturday 24 next inclusive, as told by the students of St. Mary’s Secondary School. Curtain up in the Convent Hall at 8pm nightly!

MARY’S Secondary School and musical success are almost synonymous terms – and after over three decades of sell-out shows, it is not hard to see why. Move over Broadway, the Ballina all-girls school on the hill has earned its place in lights with a track record of cleverly reworked classics which are given a new lease of life on the Convent Hall stage.

“Billie” is the latest in a very colourful tapestry of theatre, carefully woven by the girls of St. Mary’s, under the guidance of director, Mr Peter McLoughlin, Musical Director, Ms Regina Deacy and Choreographer, Ms Annette Leonard. The team also incorporates the talents of the Art Department led by Ms Renee Cronin and the team of Home Economics teachers, Ms Marie Clarke, Ms Anita Ginley, Ms Shona Garvey and Ms Eva Beirne involved in costume preparation. This year’s show comes on foot of the 2017 extravaganza “Illegally Blonde.”

Principal, Mr Robert O’Reilly wished the cast and crew well in the upcoming shows and said: “Participation in the annual school musical is one of the greatest learning experiences of the Transition Year programme from a cross-curricular perspective. Friendships are forged, skills are honed, talents are nurtured, creativity is encouraged and challenges are overcome all in the atmosphere of convivial co-operation,” he said.

Show Director, Mr Peter McLoughlin, promised this year’s event will be “bigger and better” than ever before. “Each year we try to write a story that is both relevant and entertaining, a serious message presented in a light hearted way. This year’s show certainly captures that. The girls have worked tirelessly to create a fantastic theatre production that boasts a plot that comes to life through music, song, dance and drama.”

This year’s show, “Billie” runs from March 22, 23 and 24 with curtain up at 8pm sharp nightly.

Tickets can be purchased through the box office ticket line on 087 777 3827. Adults €12 and Students/OAP €8
