Musical Mania will be performed by over 100 young people ranging from 6-22 years and have dedicated their Summer holidays to learning new skills and preparing for this musical spectacular.
Stagecraft have put together a talented team of creatives to mount this ambitious production including director Lisa O’Brien, musical director Keith Greene, choreographer Lucy Fitzgerald and assistant director Aislinn Mc Cabe.
“This is by far one of the most enthusiastic and talented casts I’ve ever worked with,” siad Lisa O’Brien, the productions director said.
“They have worked so hard and given up their Summer for this project and the end result will be proof of their hard work. Lucy Fitzgerald, Keith Greene and Aislinn McCabe have really gotten the best out of this cast and done amazing work with them. There have been laughs and tears within the workshops - even from myself and I am loving working with such a fresh and motivated cast to bring a bright end to what has unfortunately been a not so bright summer.”
Stagecraft was founded in 1998 by current artistic director Shane Dempsey.
“We have established a long tradition of providing young performers with the highest standards of training and this is encouraged in a fun, non-pressured environment where the young people can truly blossom. Musical Mania is an ideal chance for our members to learn new skills, make new friends and entertain, the perfect way to keep the young minds busy. We are now in the process of enrolling for their forthcoming season of workshops that will commence in late September, a new programme for adult actors as well as a Drama in Schools programme.” Musical Mania promises to be a sensational evening of theatre and please book early to avoid disappointment as this show always proves to be hugely popular.
