School Show 2024 – Barbie

Wow! 🎭 What an amazing 2 shows we had in Rossmore Hall on Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st March. This year, our whole school show was “Barbie” 🩷 and the cast and crew were absolutely out of this world!  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Classes have been busy over the last few weeks rehearsing and all this hard work definitely showed during both performances. They absolutely nailed all aspects of the show, including the acting, singing and dancing and without a doubt, there is a bright future in showbiz for those who want it! 🎭

On both nights, staff and audience members were invited to were pink and we were blown away when Rossmore Hall was filled with all the different shades over the 2 nights. 🩷 

The performance was recorded both nights by Greg Mulcahy and once the final editing has been completed, we hope to take 6th class to the Park Cinema for a special screening. We are all looking forward to seeing the finished product and details of how the recording can be accessed will be forwarded when available. We are also very grateful to Mark Coombes for once again photographing the performance. 

We would also like to send a massive thank you to the Hall committee in Rossmore who were excellent in answering any questions we had. As always, this year’s production has been a real team effort with 6th class pupils and staff putting in trojan work. Huge thanks to everyone for their hard work and well done! 👏🏻

 

You’re braver than you think!” Barbie 🩷
