Pres and Loreto kids ‘Don’t Stop Believin’

Bray People - - NEWS -

THERE was a great at­mos­phere at Mer­maid Arts Cen­tre last week as stu­dents from the Pre­sen­ta­tion Col­lege and the Loreto once again col­lab­o­rated on their an­nual mu­si­cal in front of a packed house.

This is the 13th year that the two schools have joined forces on an­nual pro­duc­tion which is put on by a cast of tran­si­tion year stu­dents, and this year promised to be as good as ever as they staged ‘Don’t Stop Believin’.

The show tells the story of the Ethel Lam­pert Com­mu­nity Cen­tre which has run into dis­re­pair and may soon close down un­less the teens, vol­un­teers and staff find a way to save it. The group face op­po­si­tion from a group of sleazy city coun­cil mem­bers who want to knock the cen­tre to the ground and re­de­velop and com­mer­cial­ize the neigh­bour­hood, bring­ing them tonnes of tax rev­enue. When the teens who fre­quent the cen­tre hear of a new tele­vi­sion re­al­ity contest for glee clubs, they de­cided to form their own and try out in a bid to keep the cen­tre open.

The stu­dents all worked ex­tremely hard on the pro­duc­tion which ran from Wed­nes­day to Satur­day and they got a great re­cep­tion from the au­di­ences each night.

It fea­tured quite a large cast, all of whom col­lab­o­rated ex­cel­lently on stage mak­ing the show a real suc­cess. Both schools wish to thank ev­ery­one who came out and sup­ported the pro­duc­tion, as well as the stu­dents for their hard work.
