As it is Oscar season, we too in Drimnagh Castle have been putting on quite the performances!.It was the last week of school before the Christmas holidays so the school did what we do every year, The Christmas Concert! We do this every year on the last Tuesday and Wednesday before holidays. Every class did a play and some songs or some songs and some poems. Here is a list, a description and some good words about each and every single play performed on the stage on the day of The Christmas Concert.
- Room 2 Ms. Murphy
The North Pole’s First Christmas
It was a play telling how Santa got his reindeer. It was an interesting and creative story.
- Room 3 Ms. O’ Brien
The Christmas Star
A story of Christmas decorations coming to life and they wanted to be put on a tree, but a star rejects them until realising it is wrong to exclude people. It had great story and excellent acting from Terence E.
- Room 4 Mr. Treacy
Christmas Around The World
A play saying you don’t need much to have a great Christmas. It had a great message in the story and great acting too.
- Room 5 Ms. Tarpey
It Was The Day Before Christmas Holidays.
A story of the boys in a school excited for the holidays. It had great singing and expression in the story.
- Room 6 Ms. Peacock
It was a collection of different songs and poems. It had great singing and expression.
- Room 7 Ms. Sheridan
A play inspired by the book War Game, when something magical happened
in World War I on Christmas. It had great acting, expression and voices.
- Room 8 Ms. Keane
A collection of classic Christmas songs. There is a lot of great singers in that class. For example, Leo F sang Last Christmas completely solo. He was excellent.
- Room 9 Ms. Rogers
The Santa Interviews
A play about people interviewing Santa. It looks like loads of effort was put into it.
- Room 10 Mr. Devlin
Making Me Holy Communion
A comedy where the boys dressed up as girls and talked about their Holy Communion and made jokes about their teachers. This play was hilarious.
- Room 11 Ms. Mc Donnell
The classic story of The Grinch retold in the form of a play. Great Singing and Good Expression.
- Room 12 Mr. P. Maher
Songs And Poem
A simple performance of poems and songs. Singing was acapella as always! Clearly a lot of effort was put into it.
- Room 13 Ms. Wallace
Tir Na Og
An old tale from the history books. Great and really faithful to the original story.
- Room 14 Mr. O’ Connor
The Late Late Toy Show
A comedy play based on the show. Hilarious and lots of enthusiasm.
- Room 15 Mr. R. Maher
Songs And Drama
With lots of great songs and funny skits, it was very entertaining.
- Room 26 Mr. Grehan
Another Christmas Carol
The classic story of the Scrooge but with a twist. (Where the Scrooge is a young boy in Drimnagh Castle). It was a good twist to the story and great acting by Scrooge- Jake S..
- Room 27 Ms. Martin
Let Us Entertain You!
A couple of short scenes from some familiar Christmas advertisments which were pretty entertaining, as the title suggests.
It had a lot of variety with all the scenes and it was great.
This year was packed with so many excellent plays and everyone did a great job. It is exciting to think what brilliant stories, songs or whatever is in store next year.
