CINDERELLA: Well done to the Transition Year students for their production of Cinderella panto at the Colaiste last week. It was a most enjoyable night with Andrea Collins as Cinderella portraying a mixture of pathos and gumption and stealing the show with her wonderful singing voice. The Ugly sisters were hilarious with the multi-talented Jackie Harnett proving that there is the making of a comic actress in her and Deidre O’Connor with her impeccable timing providing Jackie with a perfect foil. Muireann Hickey as the lovelorn Buttons was witty and lively, Joanna Maynard as the Wicked Stepmother was menacing and Queen Kerry Ann Finucane with her beaming smile lit up the auditorium as she and her husband His Majesty Matt Hunt discussed the need to get a wife for the Prince. Fairy Godmother Aishling Scanlon was fun, Prince Charming Daniel Leahy was both handsome and regal and his valet Katie Ahern delivered some great lines with panache. We had music and dance, a fast moving chorus line, witty lines that gave us great laughs, a solo from one of the girl’s chorus which was beautiful, Mary O’Brien on piano and memorable sets from Mr Vaughan – the first of many musicals to come we hope, and a hard act to follow. Well done too to all the local businesses who sponsored the students.
