Presentation Secondary School Clonmel Annual School Show

The High School and Presentation Secondary School, Clonmel presented “Disco Inferno” as their annual school show in St. Joseph’s, Ferryhouse, Clonmel on Friday and Saturday 23rd & 24th October. This joint schools project has been running for 33 years. There was no doubt that we were treated to another excellent production.

The show provided a great night of entertainment as the boys and girls of High School Clonmel and Presentation Secondary School, Clonmel performed to their normal high standards.

This is the first time that the schools produced 'Disco Inferno'. The show was based around the summer of 1976... it's as hot outside as the fashion, hits and passion are on the dance floor and Jack (Steven Lafford) is about to celebrate a 21st birthday that he will never forget in this fantastic new 70's Musical Comedy. The story follows Jack’s ambition to be a superstar.

Of course, there were many twists and turns involving such characters as devilish Lady Marmalade (Katie O’Brien), Jack's friends, geeky Tom (Philip Hannigan) and club DJ, Terry, (Conal Guilfoyle), Jack's girlfriend, Jane (Lucy Fitzgerald), club owner, ageing rocker Duke (David O’Callaghan), Heathcliffe (Eran Hickey), record publicist, Nick Diablo (Brian Condon), Lily (Luke Fennell), Kathy (Therese Gregory) and Maggie (Zoe Brannigan).

Keith Greene and Lisa O’Brien were the directors of the show, with Siobhan Alley and Olga Gannon as musical directors .The choreographer was Shannon Cairns, a fifth year in the Presentation Secondary School, Clonmel.

Keith Greene, one of the co-directors, was delighted with the response from the students to the production .He said “that the boys and girls from both schools are a very dedicated group, they have worked very hard since late August and they produced a show that is very energetic and entertaining”.

Congratulations to all involved in the highly successful Disco Inferno. It was absolutely brilliant and the standing ovations on both nights were so well deserved.

The show played to packed audiences on the Friday and Saturday nights at St. Josephs Ferryhouse.

Many thanks to all students, staff and parents who gave the enormous support needed to make the show such a huge success. Especially, congrats to Ms. Siobhan Alley, Ms. Lisa O’Brien and Mr. Keith Greene for all their hard work.

Not forgetting the cast and backstage crew for their commitment and dedication to the show.
