Audiences consider themselves at home

'CAN WE have some more?' is the question audiences are asking as Oyster Lane Theatre Company stages its Opera Festival production of 'Oliver' in the Presentation School.

The show featuring a cast of 75, with Taghmon boy Daniel Furlong in the lead role, opened on Saturday night last and will continue nightly until this Saturday, October 25.

Daniel proved himself a trooper after breaking his arm two weeks ago while playing football, right in the middle of rehearsals.

Undeterred, he carried on with his arm in a cast after the choreography was changed so that he wouldn't be knocked around the stage so much.

Now, with the cast painted grey to blend in with the gloomy setting of Oliver, you would hardly even know there was anything wrong.

Oyster Lane Theatre is delighted with the response to the show which has been a near sell-out every night so far. 'It's going amazingly well. The feedback is terrific,' said the PRO, Mary Clancy.

To book seats for the rest of the week, contact Whites for Music, South Main Street, Wexford on 9122067.
