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.

Described by one of the cast as “Kitty the Hare meets Calamity Jane” the new musical play ‘The Three Nations Mine’ is set to provide great entertainment in Upperchurch this weekend.

An incredible mix of cancan dancers, miners, lawmen and assorted crooks mingle with Irish mammies, clergymen, hurlers and a local seanchaí to recreate with music, song and comedy the story of a Drombane lady who went to Arizona over a hundred years ago. All of the backroom team from The Upland Players’ production of ‘Eamon an Chnoic’ last year are again involved, but about half of the two dozen strong cast will be performing for the first time. There is plenty of dancing, music and song. Six different characters have singing parts including Lucie Clément from Belgium who also leads the cancan dancers.

Like last year the characters will wear spectacular costumes, mostly brought in from Berlin under the supervision of Therese Browne.

The director is Mary C Ryan from Holycross.

For your own comfort early booking is advised by phoning 087 615 8937. Tickets are priced at €10 and the performances will take place on Friday, March 14th, Saturday, March 15th and Sunday, March 16th at 8pm nightly.
