Grainne lands in Lilliput role

A BUDDING Doneraile actress has been cast in a showcase production of 'Gulliver's Travels', running at The Evryman Palace Theatre this Thursday to Saturday.

Grainne Holmes Blumenthal (18) is one of 16 young actors who were selected through auditions from youth theatres across the country.

Grainne (pictured) earned her slot in the show after an intensive six week stint at the National Youth Theatre in Dublin over the summer.

Grainne is one of five Cork actors in the cast, which began its run in Dublin.

This is the first time in 26 years that the National Youth Theatre has toured and it is being billed as a sparkling production of the classic tale.
