Drama Competition

On Monday the 25th January TY Desta went to Mullingar with their English teacher Ms. Guilfoyle to take part in a TY drama competition. There were two plays entered from our class "Us and Them" and "Seventeen". In the weeks and days leading up to the day we were all very nervous but also very excited at the same time. I was in the play "seventeen" and it was great fun preforming our play.

We left the school on Monday after registration for Mullingar. The first group were on at 11am and we got to watch them as they were performing. They were excellent!! Then it was my groups turn to perform. It was nervous standing in the wings watching the girls on stage and waiting for your turn but once you were on stage it was grand. We did really well. Each group got a certificate for taking part and the judges commented on each performance.

It was nerve wracking waiting to see if we got through but that was put to bed when we found out on Tuesday in our English class that both groups got through to the next round and will have to go back to Mullingar again and preform our plays again.

Well done to all the girls and thank to Ms Guilfoyle for all she did to help us!!!

It was soo much fun and I actually cant wait to do it again !!!
