Beech Hill College Principal, Mr Patrick Mc Ardle, was delighted to welcome everyone to The Garage Theatre for the Beech Hill College production of ‘Mary Poppins’ which took place on Thursday the 17th and Friday the 18th of November with matinee performances which were thoroughly enjoyed by children from local primary schools on Wednesday the 16th and Thursday the 17th of November.
This production was truly the work of Beech Hill College students and their teachers who brought this show from idea to performance through their Construction, Art, Music and Drama experience and expertise.
The cast of the show included Claragh Mc Dermott as Mary Poppins, Orán Maguire as Bert, Aoife Maguire and David Foth as Jane and Michael Banks and David Brady and Rebecca Mc Phillips as George and Winifred Banks. Zoe Keenan played the part of Mrs Brill and Benton Duffy was a perfect Robertson Ay.
The entire production was mainly the work of the TY students who have been extremely busy since returning to school in September. Students from second and fifth year were also involved in the choir. Huge thanks to Ms Mary Mc Ardle who directed the show assisted by Ms Joanne Brennan, Ms Emily Mc Meel who was the musical director and Ms Ann Costello, Ms Arlene Connolly and Mr Dominic Mc Stravog for their enthusiasm and assistance.
