Future looks bright for vibrant group

Things aren't just looking rosy for the Oyster Lane Theatre Group these days - everything is in amazing technicolour!

For the vibrant young musical group have just secured the rights to the hit Lloyd Weber musical, 'Joseph' for their 2006 production.

The OLTG had an uncertain start to their season, when they realised that their traditional venue, Dun Mhuire, was being used by Wexford Festival Opera this year.

However, the Presentation Convent School have come to their rescue and the group will now stage the smash hit musical during Wexford Festival in the school.

The enthusiasm shown by the school for the project is much appreciated by group chairperson, Paula Malone-Carty. 'The school have been brilliant. They have made the hall available to us, and have helped us secure this show. We are really grateful to the principal and the Board of Management,' she said.

The group, who this year also affiliated to AIMS (Association of Irish Musical Societies), will stage 'Joseph' from Tuesday, October 24 until Sunday, October 29 (inclusive).

Nearly 70 people attended their recent open night to plans for the season, and all were brimful of enthusiasm for the show, which will be directed by Alan Corcoran; musically directed by Patrick Clancy and choreographed by Suzanne O'Leary.

Auditions for the show take place on Sunday, May 21 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Franciscan Friary Hall.

This lively show, which has well known hits like ÒAny Dream Will Do' and 'Close Every Door To Me', has lots of parts and audition pieces are available from Nicola at 086-1744778.

'There has been great enthusiasm about the show so far. We are really delighted with the turn out, and look forward to a great year,' said Paula.
