The Upland Players from Upperchurch will be staging their second production, a new musical play called “The Three Nations Mine”, in Upperchurch on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, March 14-16th. The Upland Players’ initial effort last year, ‘Eamon an Chnoic’, was a great success and played to a full house for four nights.
This play is partly based on the story of Margaret Walsh from Drombane who went to Arizona in the early 1900s. There she married Michael Irish from Slieverue (Kilkenny), who had made a fortune in the copper mining business. The couple later returned to Ireland.
The play is generally light-hearted, amusing and includes plenty of music, song and dance.
Similarly to ‘Eamon an Chnoic’ the script was written by Billy Clancy and Mary C. Ryan (from Holycross) is the director. The costumes will again be supplied by Therese Browne. The play will feature Joanne Ryan, Jodie Kennedy, Jim Ryan, Pakie Purcell, Jim of the Mill and others.
Tickets will be available in local shops or can be booked by phoning 087 615 8937.
