All sys­tems go at launch of Lip Sync Castleis­land

The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

THE of­fi­cial launch of Lip Sync Bat­tle Castleis­land took place on Fri­day night in Tom McCarthy’s Bar.

“Ex­cite­ment lev­els are steadily ris­ing in an­tic­i­pa­tion for the big­gest show in town. It’s now less than three weeks away from the sec­ond run­ning of the event which is tak­ing place on Fri­day, March 2, in the Castleis­land Com­mu­nity Cen­tre,” said Castleis­land AFC spokesman, Neil O’Sul­li­van.

“The launch night gave con­tes­tants their first taste of the Lip Sync spotlight as they posed for their group pho­tos in front of a large au­di­ence.

“Last year’s event was a fan­tas­tic suc­cess with 11 acts bat­tling it out to be crowned Lip Sync cham­pi­ons in front of a crowd of over 1000 peo­ple.

“There were some un­for­get­table acts on the night in­clud­ing: The Mad Ones; Mommy’s Boys; Soc­cer Moms and the two win­ners Steve and The Is­lan­ders to name a few.

“This year 12 acts have signed up to bat­tle it out to be­come Castleis­land’s num­ber one Lip Sync act and with the pro­duc­tion com­pany Lip Sync Bat­tles Ire­land and chore­og­ra­pher Cassie Leane booked again we are in for a re­peat or maybe even bet­ter night than last year.

“Tick­ets are ex­pected to sell out fast again this year so buy early to avoid dis­ap­point­ment. Af­ter the show there will be a disco un­til late and a full bar ser­vice will be avail­able be­fore, dur­ing and af­ter the show.

“All funds raised will go to­ward the Castleis­land AFC and Castleis­land Com­mu­nity Col­lege joint build­ing of an All Weather Astro Pitch which is a badly needed fa­cil­ity in the town.

“One fi­nal push and the sup­port of the lo­cal busi­nesses and lo­cal peo­ple will make the pitch a re­al­ity late in 2018.

“Lo­cal busi­nesses still have time to ad­ver­tise their ser­vices in the Lip Sync Bat­tle pro­gramme and on the big screen on the night.

Tick­ets for the show will once again be on sale at a cost of €20 and will guar­an­tee you an en­ter­tain­ing night at one of the big­gest pro­duc­tions ev­ery wit­nessed in the town of Castleis­land,” said Neil with great as­sur­ance.

Tick­ets are due to go on sale at the end of the week and a full list of out­lets sell­ing the tick­ets will be listed on the Face­book page from this week on­wards.

Keep an eye on the Lip Sync Castleis­land Face­book page - ad­ddress be­low as pro­mo­tional videos of the con­tes­tants will be re­vealed one by one.
