IT’S ALL ROCK AND ROLL AT GRAMMAR SCHOOL SHOW
AUDIENCES were transported back in time and across the ocean to America of the 1950s at Dundalk Grammar School’s recent production of ‘All Shook Up’.
This colourful and energetic production perfectly captured the era of rock ‘n’ roll, telling the story of a small town girl whose dream comes true following a surprise visit from a mysterious leather-jacketed, guitar-playing stranger.
The show, staged in the school’s Finnamore Hall, was directed by Mrs O’Connor-Moneley.
There young cast gave excellent performances with Natalie Hazel Williams as Natalie, Max Valentine as Dennis, Osgar Sullivan as Jim Haller, Roisin Crowe as Sylvia , Caragh O’Reilly as Lorraine, Aaron Tham as Chad, Emma Graham as Mayor Matilda Hyde, Richard Dunne as Dean Hyde, Tadhg Coleman as Sheriff Earl, and Ayesha Murphy-Jallali as Miss Dandra. They were ably supported by a host of talented singers and dancers.
The impressive choreography was led by Ms O’Reilly, Ms Verdes and Ms R. Matthews who put the young dancers through their paces as they performed energetic routines to a selection of hit songs from the era.
