Sisters Act Again Review

Sisters Act Again Review

In a collaborative production between St. Leo’s College and St. Mary’s Academy CBS, a cast of over one hundred and fifty Transition Year students took to the stage last week to present “Sisters Act Again”. Under the direction of local talent Janice De Broithe and assisted by Aine Shiels, the cast worked tirelessly during the previous three months to produce a vibrant, busy show offering all the students an opportunity to showcase their immense singing and dancing talent.

Over two matinee performances and three nights the cast worked their magic to offer a highly polished and entertaining production to packed houses. As Deloris Van Cartier, Ciara Long gave a superb performance, portraying the sisterly character with ease and her powerful vocals stunned many in the audience from the first song. Similarly, strong skills and emotions were present in Jade Nolan’s depiction of ‘Rita’ and Katie Brennan’s “Tanya”, both revealing astounding vocal capacity. Emma O’Neill (Sr. Mary Robers), Beibhinn Wilkins (Sr. Mary Patrick) and Zoe Whelan (Sr. Mary Lazarus) drew many laughs while the role of Mrs Watson (Ellen Phiri), Las Vegas Showgirls, the Music Students and the Male Chorus all added a colourful and entertaining dimension.

The main priestly roles were Mark Behan (Fr. Maurice), Stephen Dwyer (Fr. Thomas) and Ciaran Townsend (Fr Ignatius) who worked well together in an effort to prevent the scheming callous administrator, Matthew Nolan aka Mr Crisp from trying to close the school.

Filled to the brim with laughable moments this production was both enjoyable and memorable with many very happy memories made for the cast during the production. Well done to all the cast and crew and appreciative thanks to everyone who supported the show.
