On Sunday night, 29th March it will be “a night to remember” in Drumkeerin Community Centre when twenty seven of the Drumkeerin Youth Drama Group take to the stage to perform four One Act drama productions that will provide an outstanding and most enjoyable entertainment of side-splitting comedy, humour and fun, thrilling drama and intrigue.
Two of the plays, “Driving Test”, and “Charity Begins At Home”, will have audiences rolling in laughter .
In the Youth Drama Workshops, theatre games and theatre exercises, many current issues affecting youth were explored and acted out, devising drama performances “Tomorrow Never Comes” is one such drama.
It powerfully brings before audiences life of the homeless on the streets, a topic that has been very much in the headlines in recent months .
Audiences will see how easily how even the rich and famous can slip into homelessness and be trapped, and how hard it is to escape, once fallen . “Flash Point” is a thriller , set in a second level school .
The drama follows how how one rowdy show-off liking to be the centre of attention, finds how one act, going too far, can have dire consequences for him, and leads to many unpleasant situations for him and others before finally ending up in a courtroom; not before classmates had taken sides .
After more than three months of workshops these youth perform like adults acting with confidence and fine acting skills that belie their ages of 13 to 17.
Twenty of the twenty seven young actors were on the drama workshops last year and ended with great stage performances.
Consequently audiences are in for a feast of good acting, great drama and entertainment, which should not to be missed.
Curtain goes up at 8.00pm. Doors open at 7.15pm.
