Rehearsals are well and truly underway in one Killarney school as they prepare to take a Disney classic to the stage this December.
Killarney Community College students are planning two performances on Tuesday, December 3 and Wednesday, December 4 nightly at the college at 7pm.
Auditions for the production, which is written by Alan P Frayn of Stage Right Creative Ltd., commenced on September 11 with rehearsals immediately with the staff and the cast of 13 principals and 14 chorus giving up two hours of their Wednesday and Saturday afternoons.
“The school pantomime is a fantastic learning and social experience for the students,” Director Mike Lynch said.
“It is a unique opportunity for staff and students to collaborate and work together in a very structured yet fun filled project.”
The role of Belle was much sought after but was eventually given to Third Year student Rachel Griffin who had wowed the entire school by winning last year’s ‘Who’s Got Talent?’. Sixth Year student Brian Harrington has the difficult job of learning and acting the dual role of Prince/Beast. The Panto Dame ‘Fifi’ is being played by Sixth Year student Tova Buckley who is relishing the role. These are ably assisted by a range of other students equally as talented from First through to Sixth Year.
All departments within the school will help out with advertising and PR, ticket sales, stage and set construction and painting, hair and make-up, props and costumes, making it a real whole school effort, he added.
Tickets are now on sale from the school office 064 6632164, €10 for adults and €5 for students/children.

What do roses, wrens, King Puck, fairies and Santa Claus have in common? Well, all now feature in a new children’s book co-written by a mother and son.

The new illustrated poetry collection for children, ‘A Very Kerry Year’, by Killorglin mother and son, Jacinta and Conor Browne, has been published just in time for Christmas.

And all proceeds will be donated to Comfort for Chemo, an organisation whose mission it is to build and equip a chemotherapy unit for the people of Kerry.

The charity is close to the young author’s heart as Conor himself was undergoing cancer treatment while writing this book.

With original poetry by the mother and son, the book also has another separate family connection as the talented illustrators are local artists, father-daughter duo Con and Rochelle Lucey, with each page awash with colour and beautiful drawings.

“I know first-hand how important it is to have a comfortable environment while receiving chemotherapy,” Conor said.

‘A Very Kerry Year’ is currently available for €12 from The Crystal Cave and the Reeks District Tourist Office in Killorglin and will soon be available in many more outlets throughout the county.
