Published

With less than one week to go until the curtain rises on our 33rd production, rehearsals remain in full swing for the cast of Killarney Musical Society. The cast are eagerly anticipating their run of Sweet Charity, which will take place in the INEC from Wednesday, March 14 to Friday, March 16. Finishing touches are currently being put to scenes and dance numbers. As the sets are erected and costumes finalised, everything points to another fantastic production. Tickets can be purchased by calling to our pop-up stand this Saturday and Sunday at the Killarney Outlet Centre or by calling 087 1342314 or the INEC Box Office on 064 66 71555.

Sweet Charity follows the romantic trials and tribulations of Charity Hope Valentine - “a girl who wanted to be loved” - played by Killarney local Lily MacMonagle. Charity is a taxi dancer, a dance partner-for-hire at a dance hall in New York City. Though the job may be decidedly undesirable, Charity’s hopeful romanticism and unfailing optimism lift her out of her circumstances and help her reach for a life beyond. In the past, she’s been strung along and hung out to dry by a series of bad relationships and lousier men. When she meets Oscar, played by Rory Ward, a neurotic, shy actuary seemingly from another world, will she finally find true love at last? One of the most famous shows by legendary director/choreographer Bob Fosse and with a laugh-a-minute script by the incomparable Neil Simon, every audience is destined to fall in love with Charity’s limitless spirit, as she lives life “hopefully ever after.”

The Killarney Musical Society would like to take this opportunity to thank all patrons and sponsors for their continued financial support, support which is vital to the success of the society. The main sponsor again this year is Independent Irish Health Foods Ltd, whose support is greatly appreciated.

The countdown is well and truly on and we guarantee you will be singing and dancing along to all the big numbers, including Big Spender, If My Friends Could See Me Now, There’s Gotta Be Something Better Than This, I’m a Brass Band and Baby, Dream Your Dream.

It is just over a week since new restrictions were announced by the Government in an another effort to curb the spread of COVID-19.

An overwhelming 62.90% said they had reduced their level of contacts with people.

Interestingly, 37.10% of people had made no change to their lifestyle, but they could have been extra cautious already.

A tiny minority – just 1.61% – said they increased their social contacts over the last week.

Local students went to great efforts on Friday last to highlight a very important message about inclusion.

Staff and students in Killarney Community College came together for ‘Stand Up Awareness Week’ as part of a national campaign where second-level schools take a stand against homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying.

All staff wore a rainbow colour and students wore rainbow coloured accessories to show their support for the campaign as Killarney Community College is a diverse, inclusive, accepting, and welcoming safe space for everyone.

The majority of students made a particularly great effort in terms of wearing rainbow coloured accessories were awarded house points.

During the week, the LGBTI+ flag was hanging proudly in the school canteen. Transition Years decorated the General Purpose area with informative posters, and in SPHE classes, students learned about LGBTI+ terminology and history.

“It’s important that school is a safe and inclusive place for anyone attending regardless of their race, sex, religion or sexuality,” Principal, Stella Loughnane, said.

“I’m delighted that our school community marked the occasion and brought great colour while highlighting a very important message. One of the key words of our mission statement is inclusion making this awareness day a very apt one.”
