Tran­si­tion Year Va­ri­ety Show at Ardee CS

Drogheda Independent - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

On Satur­day the 24th and Sun­day the 25th of Novem­ber 2018, Tran­si­tion Year stu­dents put on their own va­ri­ety show.

They prac­ticed their dances for 6 weeks lead­ing up to the show with Tracy and Kelly Mc Cluskey from “Show­biz Kids Stage School”, while the stu­dents who sang in the show spent their time with vo­cal coach, Lisa Car­pen­ter.

Many stu­dents got to show­case their pre­vi­ously hid­den tal­ents, in the form of singing and danc­ing. The show had two acts and 6 dif­fer­ent scenes. The first scene was the “School Med­ley”.

It con­tained songs and dances all about school and teenage life. One of the songs per­formed was a “One Way or Another/ Teenage Kicks” mashup per­formed by Christo­pher Craw­ley, Cian Ger­aghty, Eric Larkin, Oisin Englishby and Evan Duffy. The sec­ond scene was the “Love Scene”.

In this scene, we saw many amaz­ing dances and Erin Shevlin take to the stage to pre­form her solo “Lost With­out You”. The last scene in Act One was the “Rock ‘n’ Roll Scene”. This scene was full of en­ergy and had the whole cast come to­gether to per­form Elvis Pres­ley’s “Can’t Help Fall­ing in Love”.

Dur­ing the in­ter­val, last year’s win­ner of “Search for a Star”, Em­met Car­roll per­formed two songs for the au­di­ence. The sec­ond act opened with the “Mu­si­cal Theatre Scene”, the largest por­tion of the show. It con­tained move­ments from many dif­fer­ent mu­si­cals in­clud­ing “The Great­est Show­man”, “Hair­spray” and “Grease”.

We also saw many soloists take to the stage dur­ing this scene in­clud­ing Aoib­heann Scan­lon who sang “Never Enough” from “The Great­est Show­man” and “Good Morn­ing Bal­ti­more” from “Hair­spray”, Amy Moy­nagh who sang “My House” from “Mathilda”, Chloe Done­gan who sang “Hope­lessly De­voted to You” from “Grease” and Leah Glass who sang “I Dreamed a Dream” from “Les Mis­er­able”.

Then, there was the “Trib­ute Scene” which told the au­di­ence all about hav­ing body pos­i­tiv­ity. It had dances to the pos­ing “Per­fect” by P!nk and “All About That Bass” by Meghan Trainor. The clos­ing scene of the show was the “Coun­try Scene”.

It was a scene full of en­ergy as we saw the stu­dents line dance to mu­sic from “Foot­loose”. The show ended when all the stu­dents ran on stage to take a well-earned bow to the sound of “Shut Up and Dance with Me”.

The show that the Tran­si­tion year stu­dents put on was highly en­ter­tain­ing and was an amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for them all to be a part of.
