Yesterday, the 6th of December was the official launch of our school musical, Calamity Jane. In my opinion it was a great success. The whole cast and crew showed up early for some last minute run throughs of their performances before people started arriving. The first form of entertainment was the choir, singing Christmas songs to get everyone in the mood as they walked through the door. Next was a performance by a group of fifth year music students-Fiona, Kate, Emma, Leah and Jenny who performed a medley of Christmas songs that they had been working on in class.
Mrs L then came on to talk about the musical and the work that was involved behind the scenes. She then introduced the first performance of the night which was 'The deadwood stage'. It was great. You could see that everyone both on stage and in the audience were enjoying themselves.
Next to be introduced was Lauren singing 'secret love'. She was accompanied by the ballet dancers. Everyone was so quiet and still during this performance that you could have heard a pin drop. It was a beautiful performance by both Lauren and the ballet dancers.
Last but by no means least was 'A woman's touch' performed by Lauren and Róisín. It was a great performance and everyone enjoyed it.
After the performances were complete, the teachers involved were called to the stage to take a bow and then the tickets went on sale.
Over all it was a fantastic night and was a great success
