Muse Productions in association with St Patricks Comprehensive School and St Caimin’s Community School will shortly present William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” in The Oakwood Arms hotel.
The Capulets, led by Michelle Cawley in the role of Juliet will be played by pupils of St Caimin’s while Romeo and his fellow Montagues will be led by Lorcan Quinn and other pupils of St Patrick’s Comprehensive. They will be ably supported by an extremely experienced cast of award winning actors, including Feidhlim Hillery, Edel Halliday, Kathleen Browne, Eoin Sheedy, Noel McNamara, Nicky Doherty and Gary Keane. This tale of “Two Households, both alike in dignity” is well represented by the two schools involved. Each school has a history of excellence, a love of drama and the arts, and a healthy rivalry to add a little edge to the proceedings!
This new venture will offer a unique opportunity to pupils from both schools to experience first-hand a living, breathing Shakespearean experience, to lift the prose from a dry page and see it come to life in an intimate semi-round production. The vibrancy and energy of the youth cast will act as a perfect counterpoint to the experienced actors supporting them. The production will be fully costumed and professionally staged with a large multifunctional set and mood enhancing lighting and sound.
