Beginning on Thursday night next, November 17th , Our Lady’s will host its school musical Back to the Eighties in the school gym. For weeks now, the production team and cast have been working diligently on the show and we look forward to another highly entertaining production. On Wednesday, November 16th over 600 students and staff from all the local primary schools will attend a matinee and this will be followed by evening shows at 8pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night.
Back to the 80’s tells the story of the 1989 graduating class of William Ocean high as seen through the narrator, Corey Palmer who is now living in the year 2001. Throughout the story, Corey Sr introduces and provides insight for various characters.
The then 17-year-old Corey is madly in love with his next-door neighbour, Tiffany Houston, one of the coolest girls in the school. However, she barely notices this, as she is too busy mooning over Michael Feldman, the hottest guy around. Michael and his friends are athletic and good-looking - the kind of guys that Corey and his two best friends dream of being. However, while they may not be the coolest guys in school, they are still one up on Feargal McFerrin III, whose best friend is his computer, and who believes the crazy notion that one day CDs will replace cassette tapes.
Best of luck Producer Ms Anne Marie Johnston, Director, Mr. Derek Ryan, Musical Producers, Pat and Fran Murnane, Choreographer, Ms Siobhán King, Artistic Director, Ms Mary Byrne and to the entire cast of Back to the 80’s.
