Davitt College’s long-running history of school musicals was upheld this year with the performance of one of its most successful shows to date, Sing out Sisters!
The Joe Langan Sports Hall re-lived the glory of soul music with four sold-out shows. The Transition Year Musical in Davitt College is a wonderful example of teamwork and collaboration between staff and students. Producer Dave Mac Donnacha paid homage to the wonderful tradition of school musicals in Davitt College and said he was delighted this latest production enriched that tradition.
He also highlighted the importance of Music and Theatre as a powerful vehicle of self-expression in the lives of young people. It can be safely said that the cast and production team ensured that their musical “Sing out Sisters” was a spellbinding and enchanting performance which had the audience smiling from ear to ear. The cast was rewarded with a rousing standing ovation at the finale. Davitt College is extremely proud of all students involved and looks forward to next year’s show already!
Davitt College would also like to sincerely thank all of the local businesses who sponsored the musical. “Without the generosity and support of local businesses in Castlebar, the school would not have been able to stage such a fantastic Musical”, said Bernie Rowland, Principal. “Thank you all very much and I would encourage everyone to support their local businesses here in Castlebar. We wish everyone a happy and safe Christmas."
